It works okay
April 4, 2011
I went back to cleaning my strings using a microfiber cloth after 2 weeks, so that should say something about how well it works. Here are my issues with the product:

It isn't quite wide enough to clean all the strings at once down by the bridge on my standard spacing 5 string bass.

It doesn't actually have "360-degree cleaning" The cleaning surface is mounted directly to flat plastic so it only makes good contact with the top and the bottom of the strings. This is especially true with the larger B and E strings.

The plastic it's made out of is flimsy and the unit bends. While it has the support of the fretboard underneath it works fine but over the pickups it bends and really only makes contact with the outside pair of strings.

To me the whole point of this device is to make cleaning your strings faster because you can do them all at once, but it's so finicky to use that it took just as long so I just went back to using a cloth and cleaning each string individually. I think the string cleaner is a cool idea it just needs to be better executed.

It works great, it does the job on my 4 and 6 string bass. I will buy this product again. I like that it cleans the strings as well as the fretboard.

I really like the way this product cleans my strings and fretboards; it's simple-easy to use and handy.
Nashville, TN (July 17, 2009)—ToneGear’s The String Cleaner™, a groundbreaking string-cleaning product that was awarded “Best in Show” for “Company on the Rise” at NAMM 2008, is introducing a second instrument to its repertoire—The String Cleaner for Bass Guitar. Like the original, The String Cleaner for Bass Guitar utilizes a revolutionary 360-degree cleaning process to preserve and maintain the tone and integrity of guitar strings. This year’s introduction features an advanced design that additionally and simultaneously cleans the fret board.

“Our mission is to become the go-to manufacturer of innovative and quality-driven stringed instrument cleaning tools,” says Dave Chiappetta, founder and president of ToneGear. “Our goal is to improve musician’s lives by providing thoughtful and effective solutions for maintaining and preserving the life of stringed instruments, thus allowing users to concentrate on creating music and not maintenance.”

The String Cleaner for Bass Guitar extends the life and preserves the tone of bass strings by up to four times compared to conventional untreated strings while cleaning/protecting the fret board from serious damage and expense in the long-term. Created with specially designed microfiber pads that remove and hold debris sans cleaning solution, The String Cleaner for Bass Guitar was created for long-term, low- maintenance usage. Users simply open the tool, slide it underneath the strings, close and secure the latches, and then slide the device back and forth along the full length of the strings and fret board. The String Cleaner should be used after each play to ensure optimum performance; to clean the device, simply hand-wash with warm water and a drop of liquid soap.
