5.0 out of 5 stars Neat and effective cleaner
Easily fits in even a mandolin case accessory compartment. Really does 'restore' mildly grungy strings and extend useful life. Will not bring totally dead strings back to life, of course, there are limits.... I have used one now for around 5 months, and it is still fresh and moist - do not over-use! Once every couple of weeks is enough. Keep sealed within the tin when not...

2.0 out of 5 stars Good while it lasted
I liked this product when I first used it. It removed grime and friction from my bass guitar strings. I stored it in the tin provided and used it 4 or 5 times over the space of 4 months, and its now bone dry. That works out at over £1 per application - not brilliant value compared to some other products I have used. I won't use it again.

Will not bring totally dead strings back to life, of course, there are limits.... I have used one now for around 5 months, and it is still fresh and moist - do not over-use! Once every couple of weeks is enough. Keep sealed within the tin when not being used otherwise it will dry out very quickly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin!, 9 Feb 2013

This review is from: Planet Waves XLR8 String Lubricant/Cleaner (Electronics)
I've been using Fast-Fret for years now. Thought I'd try this out, based on the reviews. It comes in a handy, compact tin (just right for the gig bag) which is about a third of the size of the fast-fret packaging. I've only used it once or twice and so far, i've found it pretty effective. Well recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Great Stuff!, 23 May 2013
This review is from: Planet Waves XLR8 String Lubricant/Cleaner (Electronics)
I bought this as an alternative to Fast Fret to try it out, and it's brilliant!

But to all those people saying not to use it so frequently, it does say on the side of the tin to use before and after playing...

But that aside, it is still a great product!

5.0 out of 5 stars review of planet waves XLR8 guitar string cleaner, 16 Oct 2012

This review is from: Planet Waves XLR8 String Lubricant/Cleaner (Electronics)
Planet Waves XLR8 string lubricant/cleaner is simple to use and the amount of dirt it got off my guitar strings the first time I used it was amazing.I have been using it for a couple of weeks and by now would be considering changing the strings but they are still ringing out almost as good as new.I shall certainly be purchasing more of this product in the future.

2.0 out of 5 stars not slippery enough, 17 Feb 2014

This review is from: Planet Waves XLR8 String Lubricant/Cleaner (Electronics)
This dries out sooo fast and is no match for ghd fast fret, either get a different cheap brand like a spray bottle or fast fret, they are much better.

4.0 out of 5 stars String cleaner, 11 Dec 2013

It seems to work fine having never used one before I can only go by this product.
String definatly seem cleaner and easier to slide up and down the fret board.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin, 2 Oct 2012
This review is from: Planet Waves XLR8 String Lubricant/Cleaner (Electronics)
Excellent string cleaner leaves strings nice and slick after use and helps maintain string life. Lasts for ages although maybe not as long as fast fret does but the xlr8 is a lot more tidy and come in a nice little tin that doesn't fall apart like the plastic fast fret tin. The applicator also has a cap so doesn't dry up like some other products. All in all does what it's says and it's a great price.

2.0 out of 5 stars Reduced Squeaking? Really?, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Planet Waves XLR8 String Lubricant/Cleaner (Electronics)
If anything it's magnified the squeaking noise produced from moving up and down the strings! A gimmick not worth spending any money on.
