Good product, but could be improved....
5 out of 5 found the following review helpful

Pros: A simple, effective product – does the job…..

Cons: Very expensive for what it actually is though….. Characteristically minimal packaging from the manufacturers PIRASTRO - however, perhaps a little more thought into the design of the bottle and the actual application and purpose of this product would have been nice - a fitted inner stopper cap with an in-built dropper for example - for easier application onto the paper towel or whatever material you are using to apply it to the strings. Given the active ingredient is Ethanol and this is a “use a teeny weeny bit, then sits around yonks/lasts ages” type of thing this would help prevent some of the evaporation too!

Other: A liquid product considerately well packaged for delivery by Stringzone. Tip -use plenty of kitchen paper or whatever to protect your instrument and keep the bottle well away from it – I knocked mine over putting the lid back on but thankfully spilled away from my Viola (See! A stopper dropper would have been nice!)

Does the trick!

Pros: Cleans strings very well. Odourless, so better than meths. You only need a very little so the small bottle should last me a fair time.

Cons: Only the general warning not to let the liquid get on to the fingerboard or body of the instrument.

Other: I'm rating 5; hope that's high.

Does what it says on the label

Pros: Quick and effortless, in cleaning rosin build up on strings

Cons: Maybe instead of a screw cap maybe a safety cap to avoid leakage in the case

good but unnecessarily expensive

Pros: Does the job nicely

Cons: Very expensive for what it is

Other: Vodka or any other solvent would probably do the job just as well (if in doubt test on a spare or used string)
