Tone Fingerease string-lubricant
Still the best after 40 years!
Still the best after 40 years!
Been using it for years great stuff mmmakes play smoother and easier
I bought my first can of "Tone Finger Ease last week. I think this is the best thing sliced bread and flat wound strings!
I've played the guitar for around 50 years. Finger Style for 40 of 'em.C&W; Classical, Jazz; Bossa Nova; Rock. If I'd had this stuff 30 years ago, I'd Probably be "On The Cover Of The Music City News". It's that good!
Works very well!!!!!
Must have product to extend the life of your strings no matter what style you play from contry to thrash! Your fingers will thank you!
I've used this stuff for almost 30 years since my 80's metal head days. Not only does it provide the lubrication as advertised, but it can extend your string life from months to years, depending on how frequently you play! After each practice or gig, just spray it on your strings all the way up and down the neck, then give it a quick wipe down the neck with a cloth. Then just apply a light spray on top afterwards. You won't believe the difference it makes.
This thing works so well. Spray it on just before you play and feel the magic. I also spray it on the back of my strat for easy sliding.
excellent product, definitely works as advertised. Buy it, you will be glad you did.
At this point I have a hard time writing this review as Finger Ease has been a constant part of my little guitar arsenal for about 20 years. Particuarlly as my study of the instrument advanced and my left hand became more active, I have come to really appreciate a lack of friction when playing electric. In instances when I found myself without Finger Ease, particularly on hot, humid days when the neck and strings feel sticky, I was one hurtin' unit. Since transitioning to playing acoustic almost exclusively, I am finding that Finger Ease not only increases left-hand mobility but reduces string squeak. Can't address whether or not it extends string life bacause I change the things so frequently. But I would simply say I prefer not to be without at least a couple of cans at any given time. You can spend either hundreds or thousands of dollars on a guitar, but it is the simple things like a good set-up and a liberal slathering of Finger Ease that make a guitar play like a million dollars.
This is an excelent product. Wile recording in both my home studio and even at live performances, it works like a charm. It takes the sqeeky scratchy sound away that you get when you slide your fingers up and down the neck while switching from chord to chord. This probably one of the best purchases i've ever made with Sweetwater. If you are like me and cant stand the scratchy sound, then you need to get this!
I just tried this for the first time about two months ago, and let me tell you, this is without a doubt the best few dollars you'll ever spend at Sweetwater. Whether playing an electric with extra-lights or my acoustic with jazz strings, even my bass...suddenly I'm nailing that slide or octave-jumping solo clean, easy, and painless. I can play twice as long without raw fingertips, and recording sessions are a dream - I can slide all over the place without that squeaking, squealing, scratching sound from the strings. It's also a great gift - buy it for any friend that owns a guitar, I've already bought it for two of mine...they'll thank you!
The best reason that I've found for using it is to prevent dry finger squeeks when recording. I don't use it whenever I record, but I prefer to have it nearby for those times when my fingers are dry and the strings are dry and I get those squeeks when I change chords or slide through a solo. SOmetimes I'd think that the little squeek was no big deal until I added a little compression to the final mix of a song and that little squeek became a MONSTER! Spray a little finger ease .... or a little more and no more squeeks! Think of it as the WD40 of the fretboard!
I hate playing a show without it.
An excellent product I've used for more than 25 years. I always make sure I've got a can in my gig bag. Not sure of sore finger claims as related to new players, but it does everything else it says it will do. Non staining & will not harm most woods, necks or guitar finishes. A quick light spray mist on fingerboard (be sure to wipe back of neck w/ clean dry cloth if applied there), wait 3-5 minutes, & your axe is ready to go! Not only helps reduce "string squawk" (which I find slightly annoying), it also lubricates strings & can help keep them clean. Whether beginner player or seasoned pro, I highly recommend it.
Have used for several years. Adds life expectancy to strings, and makes the more playable.
I got Finger Ease because of the advice a friend of mine gave me. I figured since it didn't cost an arm and a leg I would give it a shot.
When it arrived I immediately applied it to the strings and even back of the neck. I let it sit for less than a minute and then wiped it all down and buffed the back of the neck with my microfiber cloth. I then played a bit. It felt very nice. So smooth.
I played it a few times that first day and then set the guitar down for the evening. When I got up the next morning I did another application of the spray, wiped down, and then went about my morning business. I picked the guitar up about 45 minutes later and began playing. WOW, even better than the day before.
The neck was smooth as glass and almost felt "wet", but it was not. It was just super slick. And my fingers slid so nicely on the strings. This appears to be one fantastic product. And I am sure I will be getting more when it runs out.
I love this stuff! It is amazing!
The only reason I gave it a 4.5 instead of a 5 is that it runs out really fast.
These guys have the "nak" to get an old man like me
feeling right back into the mix....last year I worked with Joe.H.and came up with some great ideas ,which mostly were suggested by Joe.and got myself some fine --vocal equip. and some --(for me) new giutar sounds.
Now, I'm going to be working with --Nick Raffaele..I'm sure it will work out great.
Note: There return policy and free shipping is 2nd. to none!
What else..Their the BEST!!!..Thanks,Steve from Charleston,(James Island), SC
Eliminates unwanted string buzz.
Decided to try this based on other ratings I had seen, and I'm happy I did. It does make moving up and down the fretboard easier and eliminates some of the string squeaking too. I would recommend it
Absolutely a gig bag essential. There are only 2 things that caused me to give it a 4 instead of a 5. First is the smell. If you are asthmatic, I would recommend putting a gas mask on while applying it. Second, the bottle doesn't come with very much in it. It's a pain that they make you pay so much for it, but it's worth it.
I want to love this stuff. I have sticky fingers it seems and my acoustic neck & strings seem to get like I've been handling a resin bag sometimes. Tried FastFret, Ducks Axe wax, polishes and nothing REALLY is the magic bullet.
Tried a couple cans of this and while it does seem to slick up the strings for a bit as did the others, it doesn't last that long and really, it seems sometimes (like the fast fret) that the strings almost get a little sticky a few minutes after you start playing. Mind you not near as bad as a 3hr show without any product.
I think it works OK, is it a miracle, not.
This product make my life much easier! I work outside alot in summers at beach resorts and on cruise ships and places where, needless to say, the humidity is atrocious!! Finger Ease is my mainstay to protect my strings and prolong their life -- not to mention the fretboard of my guitars and -- last but not least -- MY FINGERS! This stuff keeps string drag to a minimum and virtually eliminates fret noise. Love it!!
