    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.

    Fast Fret is excellent when it is new and is loaded with the lubricant. However, when it dries out it is worthless. It dries out very fast in that cheap plastic container. They should go back to the metal container which they used to use. Much better. Don't buy a lot of these at once since you will waste your money on dried out cotton (or whatever it is) if you don't use them right away.

    Fast Frets dried out?

    Comments about GHS Fast-Fret String Cleaner:

    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).

      I have used fast fret for years. I started with a spray which was a good product, but I didn't like the over-spray. This also keeps my wife happy when I practice at home.

        Comments about GHS Fast-Fret String Cleaner:

        I first bought FastFret over 8 years ago kept it in a baggie in the container and it still works. I keep my Martin downstairs and my Gibson Flying V along with my Strat upstairs, so I got tired of bringing the FastFret up and down and bought another. I like the metal container and packaging better then the old one.
        I guess it could increase your playing speed if thats what youre after but I like the way it cleans and lubricates the strings and fretboard making the strings last longer and sound brighter.
        Muscians friend has the best price so order it and keep playin'!

        WAS SKEPTICAL - DOES LET YOU PLAY FASTER

            Comments about GHS Fast-Fret String Cleaner:

            I'm always skeptical of anything that says it will allow you to play faster. I mean it's all about technique right. But this stuff does allow you play faster. Forget coated strings, this stuff puts a nice coat of fast on your strings. Besides your chording hand, the pick really glides on this stuff without being greasy or oily. I liken it to to baseball player on deck swinging a heavy bat and then switching to a lighter bat at the plate. It also helps in making your strings last for a ridiculous amount of time. I will continue to buy this stuff... love it!

              This, in my opinion, is the best product out there. I've used it for years, and I'm not interested in trying another product.

                  This fast fret string cleaner works great with my Ibanez, but when i put it on my gibson les Paul it makes it very sticky and difficult to to move around on the neck. I have to wait a couple hours for it to wear off so i can play it again.

                        Very poor! I ordered this product and it showed up completely dried out! I have used this product years ago and the applicator held quite a bit. Musicians Friend quickly replaced it free of charge. When the new one arrived it was slightly better than the first. As I write this I have used it three times and it is already dried out! Ridiculous!

                          I have used this product back in the 80s(and still do) and the fact that this product is still around says a lot. Does the job quickly and neatly. Doesn't get better than this. :)
