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!

Do not use for bass strings

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.

    Quick and easy to use. I put a little on a wipe cloth, and clean my strings after use. My strings last longer. They sound better longer. I would call it "tricks of the trade".

    String cleaner yes - lube, not so much

      Comments about Kyser Dr. Stringfellow String Cleaner and Lubricant:

      It does seem to clean the strings quite effectively. It actually leaves them dry and squeaky clean. But that's kinda the opposite of lube.. I'd find a different product for that. And it smells like ammonia. I would guess it doesn't do your fret board any good.

      This is a great product that I've used for years. Without it my strings corrode quickly. This stuff keeps my strings like new and extends string life for a very long time.

        This stuff works

        About Me Experienced

        • Good Quality
        • Improves Sound

        Cons

        • Spray Nozzle Not Secure

        Best Uses

          Comments about Kyser Dr. Stringfellow String Cleaner and Lubricant:

          The top of the bottle I purchased is leaky. The product came in a plastic bag and the cleaner was coating the inside of the bag, and when I shake the product before applying as per the directions, the cleaner flies out of the bottle! Maybe mine was damaged during shipping.
          This stuff works though. My hands sweat but daily application of this spray onto a polishing cloth and then rubbing the strings really keeps my strings sounding and feeling new for an extra couple of weeks.
          I no longer feel like buying coated strings, I can buy pure nickels but not be afraid of rust!

          Comments about Kyser Dr. Stringfellow String Cleaner and Lubricant:

          I like this product, and I believe it drastically extends the life of my strings, and feels good when I am playing. The last couple of bottles I received are: 1. difficult to open (I have to get a hobby knife to cut the outside plastic to get the top off) and 2. the pump does not spring back after depressing. I now clean my strings every time I rehearse or gig. I find this eliminates that sticky feeling from residual sweat, and also greatly extends the life of the strings. When I open the bottle I try to leave the plastic on the top, because I had one come loose and made a real mess. I only cut about an 1/4", just enough to remove the cap. I spay it on a cloth and wrap around each string and rub from top to bottom. A bottle of this lasts a long time.

          Comments about Kyser Dr. Stringfellow String Cleaner and Lubricant:

          I bought this product because MF was out of stock with the brand that I normally use which comes in a small metal container. I'm glad I did. It's better than I had expected. It made my guitar neck and strings feel clean and slick, especially during outside gigs in hot and humid conditions. I will definitely purchase it again.

            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.
