Hello. I'm a big fan of Fast Fret, and I'm using it regularly. I have one question, though. Using Fast Fret on nylon tapewound bass strings - is it safe for strings?

Jonathan Moody

Hi Milan, you should be just fine to use Fast Fret on the nylon tapewound strings. I'm not sure what benefit it'll have, since the tapewounds are pretty resilient to any dirt and buildup, but it's perfectly fine to use.

I bought two of them. Both were empty. I asked for replacement and I've got another two empty units. I wonder how many empty units you've distributed around the world. Maybe the formula is really great, I would never know.

Jonathan Moody

Hi Nikto, I'm sorry to hear about that. Can you tell me when and where you purchased the Fast-Fret that had these issues? 

Nikto N.

Hi Jonathan. Just last week and got replacement yesterday from https://www.mightyape.co.nz/. I'm not talking about empty can, everything was inside, even the smell, just the liquid is missing.

Jonathan Moody

Thanks for the info, I'll pass it along to our international sales rep.

Can I use FasFret on coated string ? for example : Elixir . somebody said that FastFret can melt the coating stuff.

Jonathan Moody

Hi Siriwat, we would not recommend using FastFret on coated strings.

Is it unnecessary for coated strings or does it do something harm to the coating?

Diego Cupertino

Does it have validity? When I know I need to buy a new one in order to keep my strings clean?

Jonathan Moody

That's going to depend on how frequently you use the FF. For players that use it before and after playing on a very regular basis, it may last a couple of months. For the players that use it once in a while, it could last a couple of years. The indicator is when the strings don't feel any different from using it, and the applicator feels bone dry.

So what's the new formula? I like the smell compared to the older one. Figure it's like a mineral oil I'm guessing and can I get some of my own.

Jonathan Moody

No new formula; same as it's been. Only thing that has changed - that you've mentioned - is the smell. We had to source a new supplier when the old one went out of business.
