The Planet Waves Pro String Winder And Cutter was one of the best additions i ever made to my array of guitar and bass tools. This tool can cut through even the thickest of those bass strings and is built to last. I bring it on stage with me werever i go and i will never go to a gig without it! It has a great tuning tool which will tune knobs as big as fenders tuning keys! Its built to be in tough situations when the average wire cutter just dosent quite "cut" it. I reccomend buying this tool, you will NOT be dissapointed.

I was happy with the string winder it is large enough for all my Basses, and even a full size cello. It winds and unwinds smoothly and quickly. The string cutter was easy and even cut my E-string with ease on the first try, cut string when straight don't cut on a bend, I checked out the cutter on several used strings and each time it cut clean and easily when the string was straight, but when it was bent it took a couple tries and the end looked frayed. I do not have a low B-string, but cut fine on the low C-string on the cello. My problem with this winder is it does not have a pin puller on the end, I have an Ibanez Acoustic/Electric and the pin puller on a regular guitar string winder will not fit the pins any more than it will wind the strings, so if you don't need a pin puller this is a great winder/cutter, if you do I would suggest a nylon notched car upholstery remover available at your local auto parts store for a few bucks.

Too Big

By 

from Virginia

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Bass Pro String Winder/Cutter:

The winder is too large and does not work well with a typical acoustic tuning prg. It might work great with a bass, but for me I'd rather use a $1.50 winder and a pair of wire cutters.

Broke after once use.

By 

from Hernando, MS

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Bass Pro String Winder/Cutter:

This winder is very cheap. @ $11 what can you expect. It did work great on 3 of 4 strings before the winder head screw stripped out on the first ever use. Love winders but don't bother with this one. Waist of money & Time.

Good tool - Good Price!

By 

from Easton, PA

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Bass Pro String Winder/Cutter:

This tool is a lifesaver. It works with all my Bass guitars from my acoustic to my Fender P-Bass. Cuts throught the E-string like a knfe through butter. Makes winding a snap. Literally cuts (no pun intended) string-change time in half. Only drawback is it doesn't have a pin puller which would be helpful for my acoustic. All things considered it's a great tool at the right price!

An essential tool

By 

from VT

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Bass Pro String Winder/Cutter:

This string winder makes changing strings a breeze! The peg winder part really does fit any bass pegs that I have ever encountered (it barley works on guitar too, it�ۡ���s just a little too big), and winding the strings is very fluid with this tool. The string cutting end cuts the G,D, and A string with ease, however I encounter trouble with the E string, and the low B string is impossible to cut with this (that�ۡ���s the reason for the 4/5), you have weaken the B with a pair of scissors before you use the cutter. Other than that this tool makes changing strings way more enjoyable and a heck of a lot easier.

Are you smarter than a 13 year old?

By 

from hudson, ma

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Bass Pro String Winder/Cutter:

I bought this string winder for my 13 year old granddaughter, who's learning to play bass. One of the tasks is learning how to change the strings. I though this would make it easier for her with her small hands, and not so strong fingers, etc. And it did. The winder works OK, but it kept falling off the tuning peg key, not sure what could be done about it, but even when I tried it, i had a tough time keeping it on. (reason for 4 stars instead of 5) The string clipper worked great, she was able to cut through the heavy bass string ends w/o a problem.

The Perfect Bass Tool!

By 

from Billings, MT

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Bass Pro String Winder/Cutter:

As a new bassist, the Planet Waves Bass Pro String Winder/Cutter (Item #DP0002B) was the first tool I grabbed! It cuts your old strings off, stretches and winds your new strings, and trims off the excess. It's the perfect addition to the bass player's gigbag!

Perfect size for Bass tuners

By 

from NJ

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Bass Pro String Winder/Cutter:

This string winder is the only one I've found to be big enough to fit around my large Bass tuners. Most of the other guitar string winders are much too small and can't be used. This thing is sturdy and makes winding strings as well as clipping the ends so much easier and faster. Pick one up today.
