Does the job but uses to much plastic and metal for what it is and is a waste. I think they need to dump the metal tin and redesign the container overall as the product does the job.

Mr. Chris Parks24th Sep 2019

Not really a fan of this over Fast Fret, but it's good enough for cleaning strings during sets.

Mr Colin Andrews8th Aug 2019

Keeps your strings fresher for longer and doesn't leave an oily residue like FastFret does. Easily doubles the life of you strings - everybody needs a tin of this.
