Great way to prolong life of your strings
VitalyG, 09.01.2018
I have been using Fast Fret for years now. It keeps my strings from drying out and helps me slide easily along the strings as well as feel slicker which makes it easier for me to play. It is also possible to use it after you finish playing to wipe off all the ?dirt? from fingers. Simple chemistry, as I would say. In my opinion this is the best string cleaner I have ever used. It includes the applicator and a cloth to wipe off the excess oil which both fit in a small plastic tube that can easily fit in a guitar case pocket. I really like that it lasts a long time. I have had my previous one that I use for 2-3 times a week for about two years in a row. So I think that this is great thing for its money. Just imagine ? one can for 2 years or even more!
I use it for my basses and guitar. And it perfectly works regardless material of strings (tried with nickel, chrome and steel) and roundwound of flatwound. Great thing is that it does not affect fretboard material ? maple, rosewood, ebony? It makes it in good shape anyways. So you may no worries for your oiled maple fretboard.
I found it a bit easier to use than cleaner by Dunlop because the applicator stays wet for all time, no need to shake as with Dunlop bottle.
It is definitely not the thing that make strings last forever, but it can helps out for gig or some demo recording if you need strings to sounds almost like new.

I've been using it for15 years now...

...and fora good reason.

Every time I finish playing, I clean each string with a piece of cloth and then I apply the Fast Fret on each of the strings.

That's it. The strings will remain in a good condition for MUCH longer than anything else I've tried.

By the way, this product will last you for many years as long as you don't leave it exposed to air (just don\t forget to always put it in its box and secure the lid). I am still using a couple of Fast Frets that I had bought more than 5 years ago.

Big bonus, the new package is 10 times better than the old one. The new one will not accidentaly open and dry out, so good job GHS!

All in all, if you want to preserve your string's life for as long as possible, here's is a cheap and very handy product.

Best of the best
Sarah H, 27.01.2020
I've been using this stuff for years. Strings last longer, especially noticeable in humid climates (I'm in the sub-tropics) and sound better.

Pros: can't spill, can't overspray, can use on maple fretboards as long as you don't push the applicator down into it, doesn't stain clothes if you wipe you hands on your shirt, ridiculously long lasting (I'm talking YEARS).

Cons: I don't like the new smell of it, I don't think it had a fragrance last time.

This version of Fast Fret has an improved freshness pack, where a cap clips over the applicator before you put it back in the tube. I've never once used any of the included cloths but I'm sure they're very helpful. Highly recommend over any of the competition. Avoid any of the spray string protector/cleaners as they can get into your pickups.
