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).

Pros

  • Not Likely To Do Any Harm
  • Relatively Easy To Apply

Cons

  • Doesn't Have Much Effect
  • Seems Likely To Dry Out

Best Uses

    Comments about GHS Fast-Fret String Cleaner:

    Perhaps I expected more from this than I should have (I really love GHS banjo strings!). But I didn't detect any improvement in the performance or feel of my strings or fret board after applying this product. I suppose I'll keep using it just to give it a longer trial, but I'm guessing that the tube I bought won't last very long -- it looks like it's going to dry out before it's all used up.

      Comments about GHS Fast-Fret String Cleaner:

      This is a great product, it provides a completely different sound to the strings and it's easier to go from one note to another.

      I noticed some people said it dries too fast, but you only need to be careful and put back the cover after every use.

        Comments about GHS Fast-Fret String Cleaner:

        I used this stuff for years, and then went through a spell where I couldn't find it. My old bass had a satin maple neck with a rosewood fretboard, this stuff slicked it up good. Honestly, I put it on the back of the neck, too. Not sure if that is recommended, LOL!

          Comments about GHS Fast-Fret String Cleaner:

          I always apply Fast-Fret either before or right after I pick up my guitar. It cleans the strings, dresses them, and also nourishes the fretboard so it will not dry out.
          I love the new package for this product- the cap for the product keeps it fresher, and I love the durable metal tube rather than the flimsier plastic tubes it used to come in!
          Your strings will reward you with a much longer life, and your guitar will thank you with easier playing!

              They made the case METAL! This is great as the plastic they previosly used would crack being transported around and dry everything out. Bummed the handle isn't wood anymore, but I can deal with the trade off.

              Dried out? Defective?

                Best Uses

                  Comments about GHS Fast-Fret String Cleaner:

                  I had one of these that I used for at least 3 years around 1-3 times a week and I loved it. Recently my older one started to not work so well as it was running out of oil, so I ordered a new one.

                  The first one I had was oily to the touch when it was new and it would apply a good amount of oil to my strings when I used it for many years.

                  The new one that I received came in a new metal package (my first was in a plastic case) and either has virtually no oil in it or was somehow dried out. It's like I am just rubbing cloth with nothing on it against my strings, virtually no oil comes off. I compared it to my 3 year old fast fret, and the old one that I was replacing leaves more oil behind than the brand new one!

                  I even tried squeezing it to get the oil to come out and it did not help at all.

                  I am not sure if they intentionally changed them to be this way, or if I received a defective product, but I am very disappointed in the fast fret that I received.

                    I've used and liked Fast Fret for years. But a few years back they ditched the metal storage can for plastic. Now the lid doesn't seal as well and is prone to coming off. Wish I'd kept and old can! How bout a reissue?

                      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'!
