New Guitar Pampering Products Available from Planet Waves: Lubrikit and Renew String String Cleaning System

The NAMM Show, Anaheim, CA (January 14 – 17, 2010) – Booth #4834 – Planet Waves launches two new products to grace its care product line, Lubrikit and RENEW String Cleaning System.

Lubrikit from Planet Waves provides tuning stability by removing friction. As all players know, friction is the root cause of all tuning problems.  Apply just a drop of Lubrikit to the nut and tremolo/bridge to optimize tuning stability, combat string breakage and end premature wear of the bridge and nut of the instrument. Field-tested with the industry’s top techs and luthiers, Lubrikit is the easiest way to end tuning problems at the source.  Lubrikit comes with one syringe of lubricant and two application swabs.


The Lubrikit is already garnering positive feedback from musicians.  "Finally a nut lubricant that works and lasts longer than 2 sets,” says Brain Farmer, guitar tech for Warren Haynes.  “I use it in the nut slots and on the saddles, applied with every other string change. I’ve also been using it as tuning machine lubricant. It works like a charm. Thanks Planet Waves....yet again!!!"

Another way to keep stringed instruments sounding new is Planet Waves’ RENEW String Cleaning System.  RENEW String Cleaning System preserves that new string tone. The patented string cleaner “squeegees” both the top and bottom of the strings, removing dirt and build-up that that can prematurely make strings sound lifeless. Used regularly, RENEW delivers new string tone and longer string life and more enjoyable playing experience.  By cleaning strings, musicians can preserve tone and prolong string life.  Tech tested and approved, RENEW is safe and recommened for all strings.  RENEW comes with two cleaning tools, one cleaning solution and 12 replacable cleaning pads.

“We understand just how important a musician’s instrument really is,” says Product Specialist, Rob Cunningham. “The Lubrikit and RENEW String Cleaning System are easy and budget-friendly products that players can use to keep their instrument playing  like new for years and years.”

Planet Waves’ Lubrikit will retail for $17.99.
RENEW String Cleaning System will retail for $11.99.
