I have used GHS Fast Fret for a long time now and consider it to be an essential accessory. The product is very simple to use. You just take hold of the wood handle and rub/ scrub your strings and fret board. The item cleans all the dirt and crud built up on your strings and frets. The results are much better sound, longer string life, and a fret board that is great condition. I couldn't imagine not having a can around at all times. I use it during string changes to really clean the frets. This item even comes with a cloth to wipe down after each use. This is a must have product.

Fast fret works like a charm...Until you run out. Fast fret does increase your speed,and keeps your fretboard nice...but after a while of use on strings and fretboard it leaves little fuzzballs on the strings and fretboard. It also leaves a residue on your fingers. I suggest buying the dunlop cleaning products they r much more worth the price.

If you feel like your guitar is sounding a little dull or sluggish, or if you feel like you're struggling to slide your fingers up and down the fret board this product is definitely a must have. I was playing the other night and just sounded awful and felt like my fretting hand had no energy. Slid this stick up and down my strings a couple times and instant improvement in sound and hand speed. It's amazing. Be warned though, once you play with this stuff you'll hate playing without it.
It reduces the friction in a great way, and lives up to the name. It is also a good way to save a money in the long run - I've noticed that the time spans between having to change sets has definitively increased.
I was hesitant to buy anything to put on my baby's fret-board, but this stuff doesn't seem to have any build-up or greasy feel to it.. I like the way it makes the strings feel.. they seem to feel a gauge or two lighter. I'm not exactly sure why .. but it does! I recommend giving it a try.. Hey..at this price it's not much of a risk to be able to make your fingers and strings last longer.
I have always used Finger Ease spray to give me that extra speed and feel, but,WOW,Fast Fret is the way to go. Not only does it give me the feel that I like, it keeps my strings feeling brand new. No more residue that my old string cleaner left. The necks of my guitars look much nicer and the strings keep that fresh from the pack feel and shine. Great find.
I purchased this product on a whim, seeing it on the counter at GC. Holy smokes, it really works for me. I don't know about making strings sound brighter, but my fingers glide over the fretboard better than ever. (I sometimes have a problem with dry hands, so a product like this is appreciated!). One benefit for me is that when my fingers glide easily, I tend to not put as much pressure on the strings, which in turn allows me to play a bit faster. I also like not having the possibility of spillage.
This stuff is great for cleaning strings and conditioning the fretboard; my strings always feel just a little slinkier after use, and my fretboard certainly is... shinier. I often polish the frets on my guitars when changing the strings, and have noticed that I've got less grime to deal with after a month of using fast fret after playing. The only problem is the cotton cloth that comes with it is rubbish. First time I used it I was picking little pieces of cotton off my strings for the next week. I strongly suggest finding something else to use (an old sock, for example). Also, when wiping the strings off, be sure to get the underside of the strings as well. I had a lot of built up residue underneath my strings which did affect the sound of my guitar after a while. But overall, a good product. Just gotta replace the cloth and be thorough when wiping down your strings.
terrible this stuff builds up faster than any sweat, beer or any other substance that goes on strings. I put this stuff on more than one guitar, and after putting it on brand new strings after jamming once. Then I stored my guitar in its case, and wow yuck, no good. And I have excessive hydrous of the hands to say the least..aka I sweat all the time. Now matter how much I sweat it does not compare to the buildup or oxidation this product causes or creates. Then if you decide to play the strings again the gunk comes off all over your guitar. I did read and follow the directions. I liked the product the first time. only then, I do not care for the greasy slimy feel immediately after applying. then the grease turns to goo. Not to mention the product is seeping into the grain of the wood of the fretboard as well... Not happy.. I will not use again.
Cleans your strings, makes them last longer, makes you play faster with ease, everything about this product is good for the price it is.
I bought this string cleaner a couple months ago, primarily based on reviews I read here. I use it on my guitars and mandolins and find that it helps with getting up and down the fingerboard while playing as well as seems to take a bit of "wear and tear" away from my fingertips. It also works itself into the fingerboard a bit and along with another fingerboard conditioner, helps keep my instruments in good shape (I live in Las Vegas and it is, of course, DRY here!!). I don't think I'll be without this stuff ever again!
I was talked into this by a store employee after visiting the store. I had looked at this on the website and was trying to decide on this or a couple other different string cleaners and glad that I decided to take the store employees advise and get this. it's not messy comes with a cleaning cloth and is in general all around good stuff. it does what it is suposed to do. Thanks GS for the Help.
