I never thought I would take the time to write a review about a string cleaner, but this product works perfect. 1/2 way through a show, your strings are getting a little gritty, wipe them down and you are "slick"! No residue, tacky feel like another product I've tried. It's a simple thing that will stay part of my gear, along with great tone! :) I think it will last year of weekly shows plus practice. Has a slight smell, only interesting, but really is OK, little sweet?

I just put on a set of DR strings, then thought I should "protect" the strings from corrosion while the strings are brand new. So I used it, and wiped off the excess. Well, it instantly killed my strings' bright "zing". They sound as dead as the ones I just replaced, and they have a squeaky feel (and sound) on my plucking fingers. I would not recommend it, at least for bassists. I am bummed because DR strings are not cheap (especially for a 6 string set). It may be great on guitar strings, but I wouldn't know.

Love This Product!

By Ernest King

Comments about Kyser Dr. Stringfellow String Cleaner and Lubricant:

Hey All!
If you are thinking of trying this product out go for it.
I use this stuff and to tell you the truth when I don't
have this product to use it makes my playing harder.
Because it cuts down on string resistance when you're
sliding up and down the strings! Give it a try and you
will see what I mean.

Comments about Kyser Dr. Stringfellow String Cleaner and Lubricant:

Very glad to have a good product available at a great price, and free shipping helps a ton. I have a lot of guitars and its way too expensive to have to re-string them all. The Dr. will help save me some money and time.

Great Product!

By tcio

Comments about Kyser Dr. Stringfellow String Cleaner and Lubricant:

This stuff is fantastic! Over the years I have always had problems with string cleaners. It seemed that after I would clean them the next time I would go to play, my fingers didn't slide down the neck very easy and sometimes with MUCH difficulty. I dealt with this for years all the way up to the day I started using Dr. Stringfellow. I have never, I repeat never had this problem since I started using this product and have been using it now for at least 8 years. This stuff not only cleans the strings nicely but leaves some kind of coat on the strings that prevent them from getting tacky even when your fingers sweat and from getting rusty no matter what kind of temperature changes occur. And the stuff even smells good!

I was expecting a liquid like finger ease or WD-40 but its more like water. I bought 2 bottles and I'll use them till their gone, maybe I'll change my mind so far I don't think so

    Comments about Kyser Dr. Stringfellow String Cleaner and Lubricant:

    Keeps your strings clean with this product and they won't corrode, they will sound better, and they will last longer between changes. The applicator tip make this product easy to use whether swabbed directly onto the strings or applied to a clean rag that you wipe the strings with. I've used this product religiously when playing extensively and my string easily hold up a month between changes retaining their tone without tarnishing.

    Saved my life!

    By Rick

    from Central Wisconsin

    Comments about Kyser Dr. Stringfellow String Cleaner and Lubricant:

    Dr. Stringfellow sring cleaner did not actually save my life. I just said that to get you to read this review, because it is a very good product. I use it on all my acoustic guitars and have lengthened the time between string changes. Now I change strings when they wear out rather than when they get dull and "thumpy" sounding. This stuff saves me a lot of time and money. Best string cleaner that I have used, and I have used a bunch of them. Make sure you clean the top and the bottom of each string. Just spray on a rag and wipe a few times, then wipe with a dry rag. I do it before and after I play.

    Excellent Product

    By J. Wilson

    from Live Oak, FL

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Kyser Dr. Stringfellow String Cleaner and Lubricant:

    I have been using this stuff for some time now and have had nothing but good results from it. As a cleaner, I use it after each session, as it both cleans and protects the strings at the same time. I also wipe the strings with it before each session, and it aids in smooth chord changes, reducing the amount of squeak. I have found that my strings generally last twice as long before going dead, which is a real plus. Dr. Stringfellow also helps to keep the fretboard clean and conditioned too. I find the odor of the product neither pleasant or offensive, but it does take a while to get used to it. This is one product I recommend to all my friends.

    great product

    By White Wolf

    from Maryland

    Comments about Kyser Dr. Stringfellow String Cleaner and Lubricant:

    I love this stuff. I bought a bottle of this about 5 years ago (or longer) and still have plenty left. it only takes a little, and it lasts a long time. I also use the old bottle with the sponge top (not the spray type). I assume it's the same formula.With that said, I want to say that it makes your strings slick, smooth, and really shiny. Same thing with your frets.It also reduces string corrosion; helping to retain their bright, fresh, tone.*Tip after applying, wipe off the excess with a paper towel or polishing cloth before playing.

    good value

    By Robert Farrell

    from Virginia

    Comments about Kyser Dr. Stringfellow String Cleaner and Lubricant:

    Good for cleaning strings after playing- constant use increases string life a noticeable amount. Works fairly well as string lube. top on bottle won't stay on well. This will cause a mess if you just toss bottle into your case or gear bag... beware.

    Comments about Kyser Dr. Stringfellow String Cleaner and Lubricant:

    Whoever used it for bass or simply dismissed it because it smells funky is a moron. This product is by far the best and most effective on the market. It cleans and lubes and gets the job done better than all of the rest of the best. If you like to play smooth, slick strings...buy this cleaner.

    And another thing......

    By SurferJoe46

    from Near Palm Springs, CA

    Comments about Kyser Dr. Stringfellow String Cleaner and Lubricant:

    I noticed that if it gets into areas of scratches and nicks, it does not discolor the wood or make it get that "oil-y" look under the finish like another product did to me. I tried to make it discolor an older Kasuga flat-top guitar..but no way..it wouldn't do it! This product is safe for those "special-collector's editions as well as daily players. Use it before and after playing..as before it makes the strings silky, and after it gives them a good cleaning. Classic wire-wound strings don't seem to soak it in and ruin tone with extra weight either.

    Good Stuff

    Comments about Kyser Dr. Stringfellow String Cleaner and Lubricant:

    I was never a fan of any kinds of string cleaners or lubricants. I would use plain alcohol if I had dirty strings but couldn't put a new set on right away. While alcohol will clean strings somewhat it didn't condition them in anyway so any areas on the strings that were attacked by oxidation or corrosion of some sort would quickly get oxidated and corroded againl. This isn't happening with the Dr.
    Not sure if this is actually a feature, but this stuff doesn't leave any annoying residue on the strings. I have been playing the guitar for about a week since application and the strings are still great. They were already rather old when I applied the cleaner.

    And as I said it doesn't leave a residue, but it still does have some sort of conditioning properties so that things like "finger noise" is minimized.
    I would say it's very high quality.
    Here's where is also really shines. You really can't beat the price. It doesn't take much, so I imagine the bottle will last a long time.
