Protect Your Strings from Your Hands!

Keep your strings sounding new with Graph Tech's Chops PrePlay topical acid neutralizer. Anyone who's been playing guitar for a while knows that the thing that sucks the life out of your strings the fastest is the natural oil (or rather, the acid in the natural oil) on your hands. Chops PrePlay makes finger oil corrosion a thing of the past by neutralizing the pH level of surface of your hands. Just apply a small amount of Chops PrePlay to your fingers before you pick up your axe, and you're all set. You'll be amazed by how much longer your strings sound and feel like new when you protect them with Graph Tech Chops PrePlay!

Graph Tech Chops PrePlay Acid-neutralizing Hand/Finger Treatment Features:
  • An easy way to extend the life of your guitar strings, no matter what kind of strings you use
  • Balances the pH level of the oils on your hands, protecting your strings from acidic corrosion
  • Keeps your strings sounding and feeling like new
  • Fast absorbing formula leaves no greasy or sticky residue
  • Smells fresh and clean, like citrus
  • Approximately 200 x uses per bottle
Keep your guitar string sounding and feeling like new longer with Graph Tech's Chops PrePlay acid-neutralizing formula!

Works great!

Playing guitar since 1963. This stuff works! Played an outdoor gig last summer in 100 degree heat and 100 per cent humidity. Preplay literally let me get through a 90 minute set sliding, fretting, and bending in total comfort even though the rest of me was drenched with sweat. It's become a "must have" in my bag of guitar stuff.

This stuff really works

I had a recording session today and thought, what the heck, I'll try the sample Sweetwater sent with my last order. My hands which don't usually sweat have been particularly damp with this year's especially hot summer. I applied pre-play after an hour of suffering with the heat and humidity. I couldn't believe the difference.

Great but...

The product is great and fulfills its purpose but I personally have a lot of problems getting the acid neutralizer out of the bottle


Not impressed. Leaves my hands feeling sticky. No slick feeling whatsoever. Would return it if I hadn't thrown out the box.
