Rotosound Releases New Guitar Care Products

The range includes guitar polish, string lube, and lemon oil.

United Kingdom (July 21, 2015) -- Rotosound believes a guitar or bass that is looked after well will give a lifetime of musical enjoyment. So to help players clean and condition instruments they have created, for the first time, a new range of quality care products. The range includes guitar polish, string lube and lemon oil, all of which are quick and easy to use.

Guitar Polish (GP4) RRP £6.50 – The polish is specially formulated to keep stringed instruments in tip-top condition. Its cleaning action reduces fingerprinting, streaking, dust and grime in seconds, restoring an instrument’s shine and lustre. The polish continues to work after application protecting guitars and basses from dust build up, helping to keeping them in pristine condition.

String Cleaner Lube (SC2) RRP £5.95 – This silicone based lubricant aids friction reduction as well as helping to prolongs string life and the brightness of the string tone. Used correctly it can speed up playing, make sliding effortless and pull offs easier, as well as improve fretting accuracy. String cleaner lube can help make strings smoother, increasing fluidity of playing.

Lemon Oil (LO2) RRP £5.95 – Lemon oil is a natural cleaner and conditioner that will keep the fret board of prized guitars and basses looking fresh and playing at their best. Made from the finest ingredients it helps remove dirt, grease and wax build up on instruments and combat the drying and cracking of the wood.

Rotosound is all about getting the best sound out of a stringed instrument. Using Rotosound care products on a regular basis will not only help keep guitars and basses clean, it can help them sound and look like new too!

Ted’s to-go kits: the silver box and the Big Black Bag.

Traveling with a collection of spare essentials—from guitar and mic cables to extension cords, capos, tuners, and maybe even a mini-amp—can be the difference between a show and a night of no-go.

Anyone who’s seen a spy flick or caper movie knows about go bags—the always-packed-and-ready duffles or attachés filled with passports, a few weapons, and cash that’s ready to grab and run with when the hellhounds are on your trail. As guitar players, we also need go bags, but their contents are less dramatic, unless, maybe, you’re playing a Corleone-family wedding.

The author’s PX-6131 model is an example of vintage-guitar evolution that offers nostalgic appeal in the modern world—and echoes of AC/DC’s Malcolm Young.

An old catchphrase among vintage dealers used to run: “All Gretsches are transition models.” While their near-constant evolution was considered confusing, today their development history is better understood. This guitar however is a true transition model, built just as the Jet line was undergoing major changes in late 1961.
