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:

        I bought 3 or 4 of these over the past couple of years - all dried out when received. But... it's good stuff when it works, so I gave it another shot; and the new applicator seems properly charged with product (yahoo!). It leaves my strings slick, reduces finger drag and string noise. I use it before most every session (and after, if I remember..). I hope the improved quality control continues..

        Comments about GHS Fast-Fret String Cleaner:

        I've used Fast Fret for many years. It used to work well, and a single can would last for months. But the last few I've bought have been dried out as received. The return to the metal can and the addtion of a plastic cover over the applicator are both good improvements, but my last few have been prematurely dry nonetheless. Also, the included cloth sheds a lot, leaving bits of material on strings and in the guitar case. Time for me to try a new product...

          Comments about GHS Fast-Fret String Cleaner:

          Great for preserving the strings on instruments that are not used or restrung very often. Ran a music store for a number of years & used it on instruments so that the strings would not corroded. Played professionally also, did not use it on my instruments because it dulls the tone somewhat.

            the strings last longer. Makes it easyer for your fingers to slide on the fret board.

              Great when new. I live on a boat on the sea where rust eats new strings from day one. New d'adarios lasted 7 weeks with no playing after applying fast fret. The fast fret picks up small amounts of rust and then spreads it all over.

                  I've been playing for 20 years and finally tried fret fast for the first time after having issues with 80/20 strings lasting. I just apply a bit and wipe down the strings after I am done playing and my strings last quite a bit longer.

                  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.

                      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.

                        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!
