I got this product 4 monts ago also with new set of strings,ps not from this website. I didnt notice that much difference from using this product(but difference was there) because strings was somewhat fresh and i was playing constatly at that time then i stopped for 3 weeks. Today i grabbed my bass started to playing and it sounded REALLY bad, i was devastated,no store for bass strings in my place so i need to order and wait for 3-4 days, then i applied this product as always before playing but i didnt expected much difference, then i start playing and i was amazed with sound, strings came back to life. This thing spare my money and trouble to get new strings i was so happy that i didnt need to wait for new set of strings, this thing prolongs strings life by double if not more! PS. I changed from electric guitar to bass so i didnt used cleaners on guitar only dry cloth and strings are cheap but Basses are different story i can tell

Trying to find a good string cleaner that works as well as Luthier's Choice that I don't have to buy in a set. I love the LC products, but have to buy the polish, conditioner, and string cleaner as a set and I wind up with more conditioner than 20 players could ever use. Was hoping the Dunlop stuff would work out but it's not the answer. Smells like kerosene and doesn't seem to work as well as the Luthier's Choice. Will stick with Gibson product for a while, I guess.

Pretty good

By Madrigal

from Victoria, Canada

Comments about Dunlop Ultraglide 65 String Cleaner & Conditioner:

Works pretty well on dead and dirty strings. Definitely brings a bit of life back into your strings. Don't use it until your strings are really dead though. I find it kills that "new string" tone if you use it on fresh strings.As a lubricant, it's ok. It's more subtle than something like Fast Fret, but it does a decent job. Doesn't last long though.All in all, a good product. Well worth the 3 or so bucks.

Uh, not quite.

By Anonymous dude-K4nRV

Comments about Dunlop Ultraglide 65 String Cleaner & Conditioner:

Sure, it removes all traces of dirt and icky stuff off your strings. It also removes all of the TONE. I specifically waited 3 weeks after putting on a fresh set to put this stuff to the test and my strings sounded worse after using it. I hated how greasy it made the strings feel too, even when using the most minute amount. Smells terrible too. This aint' it.

Comments about Dunlop Ultraglide 65 String Cleaner & Conditioner:

I bought this because M.F. no longer carries ,Blitz String care ,,,,,,,,I don't get how smearing this along the top of the strings and fretboard does anything..The sauce in the bottle may be good stuff ,,but the application method is ,,,stupid...I notice when the strings get real grimy, there is debris on the underside,,,so a rag with some sauce on it seems like a better deal ,,,and that is why I prefer Blitz String care ,,It is amazing!!

Comments about Dunlop Ultraglide 65 String Cleaner & Conditioner:

Buy it...you'll be glad you did, and YOU will have your own secret weapon on the BLACKFINGER SYNDROM too !
I was skeptical trying this but it had such great reviews I gave it a shot. I was looking for something to clean my strings with to remove the black grime that happens every time I play/practice. I play professionally with two bands at present and practice at home for hours at a time. No sweat I still get the dreaded 'BLACKFINGER SYNDROM"...
Long story short, this stuff actually brings back the strings to a brand new feel AND sound. You can hear it work when you are applying it...a very high frequency shrill as you apply it let's me know its going to feel and sound great. Wipe it on, wipe it off...that's it!
I immediatly put it on ALL my guitars and love it...Take it from me...This stuff WORKS! So well, I was going to make it a 'secret weapon' of sorts and remove the label...Great stuff, and for the great price here at musicians friend you can't afford to skip this ULTRAGLIDE 65!

Comments about Dunlop Ultraglide 65 String Cleaner & Conditioner:

After I tune up and get all set up, I give a few slides of this stuff on my strings. Come back in a few, give it a quick wipe with an old sock, and you'll find that you can play almost twice as fast as you would normally. If you play with a pick or all pop/slap, don't bother, but for everyone that finger picks this stuff really helps--you'll glide through your set like a hot knife through butter.

Works well

By xEdGexMetalx

from New Orleans

Comments about Dunlop Ultraglide 65 String Cleaner & Conditioner:

This product does what it was designed to do, and it works well. It prevents your strings from corroding and help take the acid out of them and make them look and sound like new again. It is just Teflon oilyou can go to any gun store and get some for the same price that would last you way longer, It is best when using this dunlop stuff, you put it on the strings then put some on a paper towl and do underneath the strings too, then wipe them off with another paper towl, but if I were you, I'd get this stuff called Rem oil at wal mart and most gun stores, afterall Teflon is Teflon

    Comments about Dunlop Ultraglide 65 String Cleaner & Conditioner:

    I do not notice a difference to the sound of my bass using Ultraglide 65, but I do feel added ease of playing and reduced finger wear, which is much needed for three and four-hour shows. I just shake the bottle, dab the felt head on a piece of paper to see that the stuff is flowing, and rub it up and down the strings. I change my strings more often than many bass players so I can not speak for any longevity it may add to my strings, but I love the feel of my strings when I use it. Ultraflide goes on my strings before every rehearsal and every show.

        Began looking to these products to save my fingers from pain and maintain my callouses. All these products achieve those results and help to navigate the fretboard more easily. This product has the best applicator, you can feel the moisture. Don't push too hard may get a little too wet, if so let it dry. You don't have to over do it, and not every time you play. The effects seem to last, every few days works fine. Very useful product.

              Ultraglide 65 is the only string cleaner out there. Its the only stuff that will actually keep your strings clean and prolong the life of your strings and tone. I've tried fast fret and other brands cleaners and they just don't do it. Ultraglide actually cleans, protects, and prolongs string life.

                      I reluctantly bought this after past experience with other string cleaners that left a greasy feeling to my strings. Well this product works well, and conditions the strings nicely. It leave a slightly powdery feeling on the strings, but you barely notices it there. Typically after playing, I'll put a coating on and wipe off with a towel. I believe it definitely increases my string life and give the strings a nice feel to them.

                                When I first saw this listed I thought it was just another 'gimmick' to waste my money but after popping strings way too frequently I decided to give it a try; it worked. And as an added bonus, it greatly reduces the friction (and squeaking) when moving barre chords up and down the fret board. I'm on my second bottle!

                                  Used this on strings that should have been replaced. Strings were already dark and muffled and I thought that this might postpone having to replace them. As others have noted, rubbing this on is long strokes will hurt your ears... go short and quick to reduce pain. The Formula 65 did help momentarily but worn strings have to be replaced to regain fidelity. It works better on new strings.
