Bought this in 2006 and it changed my playing! I can fly on solos and my sound is bright! Best of all, this lasts forever. I'm still on the same stick and it's got about 50 years left of uses (I use it every time I play which is fairly often). I recommend this to any player at any level. You won't regret it.

Recently purchased after buying originally a few decades ago and liking it. The one I just bought seemed to be dried out so it didn't leave much lubricant. I rubbed the strings/fretboard hard after playing and it mostly left lint on the wrapped strings. I suppose it did wipe them cleaner but hard to tell. Little wiping rag supplied was almost useless and fraying. I also use Fingerease before playing which lubes much better. Spray front and back of neck, wait 10 minutes and wipe. Overspray could be an issue though- spray quickly. Recommendation: Fingerease before playing to lube Fast Fret after playing to clean (if not dried up like mine).

              Comments about GHS Fast-Fret String Cleaner:

              There is only one reason I bought this product: I wanted something that would clean and restore proper tone to the strings. I didn't care about making the action slicker.

              For many years, having strings go dead was a very frustrating experience for me. I didn't know if anything could be done about it. For a long time, I was under the impression that problem was with the strings themselves and I was wondering how strings could wear out so quickly. Well, the problem wasn't with the strings wearing out at all.

              I have a Martin HD-28 guitar (a top quality guitar, as most of you probably already know) that had a set of dead GHS strings on it. After reading this ad, I got the guitar out and applied this product to the strings.

              After using the product, the strings sounded new again, just about like they do when you first put them on and then tune and re-tune the guitar until the strings stretch out normally. This is exactly what I was trying to achieve.

              The only possibly negative thing I could say about the product, at this point, is that the applicator seemed to be a little bit dry.

                Works well at keeping strings clean and reduces finger squeak especially on nickel or Monel based strings.

                  Comments about GHS Fast-Fret String Cleaner:

                  Lots of my friends have used this over the years. I always just wiped the strings down with a polish cloth and called it good. Recently tried this as a friend just bought a new stick of fast fret and I was impressed how it made my broken strings (bordering on dead) sound brighter and lively again I see lots of comments about how it works great to fix/prevent string issues with high humidity. Wish I would have used this when I was on tour could have saved some money on strings. Comes in a small metal container with polish cloth. Great product

                    It cleans the strings, lubricates them: Does what it is supposed to. On hot, sticky outdoor venues, it seems to help me with finger dexterity. I'm a believer.

                            I bought this on advice from an experienced friend when the hot, humid weather was making my strings go bad very fast, and playing was hard. It seems to have improved both things. Strings are bright and'chirpy' and easy to play.
