Here are a few Testimonials & Reviews on our Product. We have set out to perfect all our proprietary formulas and bring musicians, repair techs and instrument dealers the best line up of products to clean, polish and protect.
"If I was trapped on a desert island with 1000 guitars to fix with only 5 tools it would be one of them"
"I've been using the new spanner wrench here at the shop on a daily basis and I love it! Among it's many uses it's great for tightening round toggle switch nuts, and being a little thinner, it slides under most knobs easily to tighten loose pot nuts. Great product!"
"Hello, please pass this on to whom it applies: I wanted to write you… I was a long time user of Dunlop guitar care products. I still really have nothing bad to say about them, after having used their polish, string cleaner, and fretboard cleaner & condition for years. I never had a single issue with any Dunlop cleaner. I also used to use GHS Fast Fret. Your products are by FAR superior! I have your Guitar One, Polish, Detailer, F-One Oil, and String Fuel. I’m especially a fan of your Detailer, as I have both gloss and matte finished guitars, and this is safe for both. However, your String Fuel, and the fact that you offer refills is what introduced me to Music Nomad. FINALLY, someone offered a string cleaner, that’s ACTUALLY the width of your neck, WORKS GREAT, and is refillable. Your products shine far better, work far better, and overall, are simply outstanding! I just wanted to pass along my appreciation of what you do. I truly think your products are hands-down, no contest, the absolute best on the market.
I have been touring for 10+ years and MusicNomad makes by far the best polish out there. It’s the only thing I use to keep Jane's Addication's guitars looking sharp. And it smells SO damn good.
I love discovering a great product that we can recommend to our customers. The Music Nomad GRIP Winder is definitely on that list. It's nice to see a reengineered version of a basic tool that works so well it makes you wonder how you ever lived without it. The soft rubber bit gently cradles every tuner button we use on our various models and the handle spins as smooth as a skateboard wheel. It's just great!
And if you want to move really fast, get the GRIP Bit - Peg Winder Attachment for your drill. That's what I use to restring my own guitars.
"We use at least one Music Nomad product on every instrument that disembarks our facility."
"This is the best string cutter I've used in years. Goes through strings like a knife through butter. Couldn't be more satisfied then I am now. Thanks Music Nomad for all your quality stuff."
"Consistently perfect results with the only product I'll ever use."
"I've used all the products out there that claim to lubricate string friction points on guitars. They've all worked ok but most leave residue, dry out or slightly dampen the strings. I started using this stuff in my guitar repair shop, String Theory Guitar Repair, and it's unlike any other product I have used before. A little goes a long way and I've already noticed that it all but eliminates return to pitch issues when using tremolos. I use it on every instrument that crosses my bench now. I use it on bridge saddle, nuts, string trees and even on the exposed gears in open back tuners. Great stuff!"
"This Grip Winder is hands down, the best winder I have ever used. Although the design of the head has been around a long time, the blue rubber coating on the Grip Winder makes all the difference in the world. It reduces the winder head from slipping off the tuner knob, especially on bass tuners like Cloverleaf or Lollypop style. It also does not scratch tuner buttons. The icing on the cake is the the dual bearing handle. It is like power steering. Highly Recommended."
"I would like to say thank you to Music Nomad as their product is hands down the best product under one umbrella!!! From fret wire cleaning to winding on and off strings, cleaning and conditioning the fretboard. I love using Music Nomad on tour. Please check out your local music store for all their fine product..... I trust with expensive guitars"
"For the last month or so I have been using your products. The Guitar One, Tune It , Frine, F-One oil, neck cradle and string winder. All of these products are top notch. Thanks Music Nomad for making great products and for keeping things fresh with great ideas. Forever a customer. Donnie"
Last week we ordered 200 necks from one of our suppliers, the necks had nickel frets and some fairly poor fret polishing on them. They needed some TLC before so we could sell the necks, we used the one tube of FRINE to polish 135 necks so far. GREAT STUFF, and a little goes a long way.
"I'm very particular about cleanliness and quality. These guys knock it out of the park."
"As soon as I put these products into action it was clear to me that MusicNomad is a company that has had thorough experience in maintaining musical instruments. Well thought out and I really couldn't imagine using anything else. The Cradle Cube, Nomad Tool and The One Polish are just some of my favourites that are a must when it comes to working on guitars."
"MusicNomad's product range is some of the best I've seen and used in years, whether it's using their guitar polishes or their innovative handy tech tools! MusicNomad is my go to Company."
"I got mine last week and it's awesome. Seems really sturdy and I've already used to to tighten up two different guitars. Freed up some room in the gig bag."
"I just got one. Never looking back."
We now use MusicNomad's F-ONE Fingerboard Oil in the shop and highly recommend it.
“We use NOMAD Cymbal Cleaner to touch-up and protect the finish of every TRX cymbal before it leaves our warehouse. The cleaner is acid-free, easy to use and really makes the cymbals shine. We highly recommend it for drummers who want to maintain the original sound and appearance of their cymbals, too.”
It is simply the best I've ever seen............I LOVE it!
The Cradle Cube has instantly become a necessity. Best accessory created since the string winder. I seriously can't believe I ever got along with out this!
"You guys constantly surprise me. Building a better mouse trap doesn't come close to how cool this stuff is. We recently got your new string winders, and I'm still giddy using it, it has bearings inside! The rest of the guys here want the electric screwdriver version, but i'm keeping the manual one because it feels so good to use. I told the guys here that i was going to spend the day changing strings on all my guitars just for fun. Keep the cool stuff comin'."
"We instantly loved the GRIP Winder the first time we used it on our Banjos. It’s a high quality product! The dual bearing comfort handle was so smooth when winding. Also the versatility of the peg head design allowed it to fit on our smallest and biggest tuners. Thanks for your great design MusicNomad.”
I have to say, Tune It is AWESOME !! I've tried a number of different lubricants and by far this makes a huge difference. Very impressed.
"We've been using the Music Nomad fret polish for a while now, and are really happy with the performance. The frets shine up well, it doesn't mar lacquer, and is colorless on dark wood. We like it!"
"It's way nicer than anything out there. It's nice and smooth and feels solid gripping the tuners. I haven't found a tuner yet it does not fit"
"We use it and it works quite well, a great addition to your line."
"A lot of what I have tried in the past kills the tone, and we have found TUNE IT does not dampen the tone at all while keeping the guitar in tune longer."
“This is our preferred nut and saddle lube after trying all the usual suspects. It minimizes friction nicely, doesn't build up and, most importantly, does not affect the sound or sustain of the strings.”
My first impression was shocking! The ONE polish lifted dirt and grim off the guitars that I didn’t even realize was there (mind you, I clean these guitars daily!!!). The second thing I immediately noticed was that there was little to no streaking or smudge marks after wiping the guitar down. By the end of the tour, I wasn’t trying to move the guitars around under the light to see if I missed a spot, it saved me a lot of time. Which is important when dealing with a lot of guitars!
"From rough to smooth, MusicNomad is the best on all surfaces"
"We just started using the MusicNomad mat about a month ago and now it is on every guitar bench in our shop. With 10 techs working on over 100 guitars per week, we needed something that has a good grip, but wouldn't bite into finishes. The MusicNomad mat is perfect for what we do. They're a good size, long enough to reposition the guitar in a neck rest without repositioning the mat. It's easy to dump debris off, brush it off, or vacuum it off. It's easy to see and remove globs of solder, screws, wire etc that might scratch a guitar. Impervious to naptha, acetone and zip kicker."
"I love this stuff, my strings lasted an extra 2 months using this"
"Just used it last night after a gig. This product is a no brainer if you don't have a strong endorsement! I can now get three or four shows out of a set of strings. Before I tried it I was maybe getting two."
MusicNomad Equipment Care formulates and manufactures a guitar polish for Taylor Guitars under their own label. We do not directly sell the Taylor Guitars Polish. Taylor Guitars chose MusicNomad as their manufacturer due to our premium quality ingredients, formulas, and expertise in making superior instrument care products.
This is a top-quality product with nice margins for retailers. It is light years better than anything you have on your showroom floor right now.
We've been using MusicNomad’s F-ONE Oil for a while now and love what it does for the fingerboard. It’s very easy to use and reasonable in cost. Highly recommend it.
Here at Cordoba, we’re big fans of the Guitar Detailer in our shop. It is our favorite polish for our satin finish Cordoba instruments.
Having been in the guitar repair and sales business for nearly 30 years I can honestly say that I've never come across a better guitar cleaning and maintenance range than MusicNomad. Every product more than lives up to it's promises. Not only that, they're eco friendly and smell great too!
We are now using the F-ONE fingerboard oil in our factory. We also use it on our Pau Ferro fingerboards. It works great for that, too! We are using the Guitar Detailer for our satin finishes.
It's nice to find guitar care products that REALLY are better! I've tried many guitar formulas.....I believe MusicNomad doesn't cut you short on the key ingredients.......good stuff
We are big fans of MusicNomad. We use and recommend your great products.
I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you a small story. A high-end customer of mine with a 52 Fender Tele Reissue bought a guitar and noticed the case and guitar smelled like Cigar Smoke. In an effort to it freshen it up, he sprayed Febreeze in the case and directly on the guitar. The Febreeze left streak marks in the Nitro. The customer tried his own Polish to no avail. The streaks were not coming out. I receive a call from my customer and I tell him to meet me at the shop in 20 minutes. Between the Music Nomad All in one and the Polish, we were able to remove any streaks in the guitar left from the Febreeze. It worked when the others couldn't.
I was recently introduced to your string cleaner when I was on tour in the US and absolutely love the stuff… I think the philosophy behind what you guys are doing is fantastic, and I’ve never used a cleaning product that smelled so damn good! (or worked so well for that matter).
Our store is located in a year round dry climate with low humidity and we have been testing MusicNomad’s Humitar Humidifier the last two months and it’s lasting 2 to 3 times longer then other products and with less hassle. It’s simple to use and a great product. I’ll be switching my customers to the MusicNomad Humitar.
Our Nomad Tool was featured in the August 2013 New Gear Section of Guitar Player Magazine
Music Inc. Magazine for Progressive Music Retailers conducing a 2013 dealer survey asking for the best products in 2013 and MusicNomad’s Guitar ONE was 1 of only 20 products selected across all product categories for their Product Excellence award.
“Ya gotta love butt-simple solutions to critical needs, and the Humitar offers an easy and elegant way to keep the wood on your treasured acoustic guitars from drying out and cracking” Click on link for full review.
I am a professional guitar technician. I've always been searching for the best instrument care products during my years of practice in guitar repair and maintenance. Ever since I started to use Music Nomad products, I don't think I'll consider any other brands. Music Nomad products have fulfilled all requirements of my work. All my clients have praised the good results, and Music Nomad is indeed the best of its kind I've encountered!
I am the proud owner of a Gibson ES-175 Semi-Acoustic. I bought not long ago the cleaning set from another brand. When using the other brand product, it left a film on my ES-175 and all the rubbing and polishing in the world would not take away that film or fog on the otherwise almost mirror-like surface of that guitar. Today, I bought your 5-piece Care Pak and I started using “The guitar ONE” All I can say is that I am overwhelmed with the result and so is my guitar. It is absolutely perfect and it does not leave behind the film/fog like the other brand did. Well done, MusicNomad Team, for having created a superior guitar care product. I can recommend it to all my other friends who own guitars.
To whom it may concern at music nomad I’ve been a drummer for 15 years tried ever cymbal cleaning product...... To my surprise was a little iffy about your product so bought it a week ago and have cleaned about 16 of my cymbals even one that I haven’t been able to get to look like the day it was bought..... I’m sold and hooked on your product the very best I’ve ever used period no joke you will have a customer for life!!!! I even have some mini hats I bought new never hit or touched and they look better now than when I bought them!!!! Outstanding product thank you from one metal head to another.
They are the best products I have found to clean and restore all types of finishes
For 30+ years, I have tried product after product to clean our painstakingly applied finishes. From traditional guitar polishes, to household and industrial cleaning products. In all this time I have never found a product that was as effective and eco-friendly as MusicNomad. Vigier Guitars is happy to use MusicNomad products exclusively for all our instrument care needs!

Crush Drums, a respected maker of premium drums sets, recommends our Drum Detailer for care of their Drums.
Hey Guys, we've been using your F-ONE Oil down here at 13th Street Guitars on a daily basis. After trying everything on the market and being disappointed again and again... we finally found something that does the job right. We've even tried the "high-end" stuff with disappointing results. To find something that is affordable and great at the same time is cool. We're also impressed by the performance of this Guitar Polish. It's been getting little marks and scratches out of guitars left & right. Thanks, and keep up the great work!
To whoever created this stuff.....THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!
Second to none. BY FAR the very best I've used and will never , EVER, purchase any other brand of cymbal cleaner again. I'm not much into usually giving free endorsements but if you knew of all the cleaners I've used to no avail until I found your product you would understand.
I have been a Guitar tech for over 3 decades and have tried every cleaner on the market. All I can say is - THANK YOU! I travel with and care for guitars that are historically significant and need constant upkeep due to the demanding schedules of my Artists. Your "One" polish is simply incredible!
The Nomad Tool is great as a string cleaner, but also works wonders cleaning underneath the strings near the bridge, as well as other hard to reach areas. The fine, ultrasoft brush fibers are great for cleaning tuning pegs, bridge pin areas, and other spots. The brush also is the best "amp duster" I've come across. I recommend the Nomad Tool to any guitarist.
I have been building high end custom guitars for over 38 years and I have to say that your guitar polish and guitar wax are the best products I have ever used!
This is hands down the best polish anyone here at the store has ever used. It has quickly become the de facto standard cleaner for all product pictures and high end instruments in the store. I know what you're thinking: "How much better can this polish be than any other polish?" Let me put it to you like this. Imagine every other polish is a Toyota. They're reliable and certainly get the job done. Music Nomad Guitar ONE polish? A Ferrari. No, a gold plated Ferrari.
I bought a bottle of The Guitar One product and it is really good! I’ve retired my Fender guitar polishing products and will never go back to them… Thanks for a great product!
We've been using Music Nomad products exclusively for all instrument cleanings now for over 6 months and absolutely love the performance of all the products. Why do we use Music Nomad products? Because they work really well and easy! The Guitar One in particular excels at ease of use while providing wax protection and no sore muscles trying to disperse the wax. And you generate a wonderful shine in record time, no B.S.! Oh, and it smells really good. Use it in your store and the smell alone will get customers asking what it is you're using. An easy sell!
Yeah I like the polish, that’s true. But as far as I am concerned your product has saved my 1981 Les Paul. That’s right it did!! I’m sure you are well aware of those Nitro finishes & over time those necks can get tacky. Through the years it got worse and worse used lots of different products but in the end would pretty much polish well and get anywhere from a half hour to a hour out of it before it got tacky and had to polish and buff again. I guess I pretty much accepted is as nature of the beast. Then I used your product, Pro Strength Guitar Polish!! When I applied it to the neck at first I thought it was stripping the paint the polishing cloth was kind of dirty. And then I realized it was cleaning like it has never been cleaned before years of dirt sweat imbedded into the finish and just being covered up and sealed in by other products through the years. After all of this was removed, that neck has not felt that good since the eighties. I now have a guitar, which sounds incredible, and is again a JOY to play like it hasn’t in a long time. Thank you!
One of the few polishes that really works on Gibson Guitars
I just wanted to contact you and tell you all that you have the best instrument care products I've ever used. I do not use any other products to care for my customer’s instruments nor do I endorse any other products other then Music Nomad. My store just received the F-ONE Oil today for the first time and once again you all have made an amazing product to condition and care for instruments. I love your products and will continue to support Music Nomad. Thank you.
I wanted to take a second to tell you I love all the products I purchased. I have used them since I got the delivery and they are all GREAT. I also have a few customers who specify that I use lemon oil, I talked them into trying the F-ONE oil, and they have since contacted me to RAVE about it!! I am proud to be part of the Music Nomad team!
I used the F-ONE oil in my repair shop. I finished a fret job on a maple neck that was in need of cleanup. I only used a few drops and was surprised on how well it cleaned up the smudges and remnants of the fret work that could have stained the neck. I have also noticed that new maple guitars seem to feel or have a chalky layer on the neck. I used, again, a small amount of F-ONE and to my amazement it not only removed the chalky feel from the neck, the luster of the neck became apparent. This is a great product and I will continue to use it on my guitars in the shop and my personal collection.
Just wanted to let you know that I was wondering if you guys made a detailing spray, I went to your web site and saw that you do make it. I was thrilled since I love your polish and microfiber towel. I went out to my local guitar shop and bought the spray as well. The product is fantastic and love the way it removes fingerprints, dust and grime. Everyone should be using your amazing line of products, which I will be using for as long as I play guitar!
I'm writing in regards to "The Guitar One" spray wax. I do a lot of set ups on my customers and my own instruments and this is by far the best product I have used for the finish. And on top of being a great product, it smells great! I now make it a point to ask the customer what kind of care products they use and ALWAYS recommend your products.
I have been using Music Nomad's Guitar Detailer for the past year. I've used it on all my guitars, electric and acoustic and I can honestly say that it is the best product of its type that I've ever used. My guitars always look great and I never have to fear tossing my damp micro-fiber cloth in my gig-bag because the product smells great. It looks like I spent a lot of time polishing but in fact it takes a couple minutes. I recommend Music Nomad whole-heartedly and enthusiastically.
The MusicNomad F-ONE Oil is better THAN ANYTHING ELSE I HAVE TRIED for a variety of reasons.
1) after it dries, the fingerboard does not look and feel dried out.
2) the thick consistency of the oil means that I can drop it on the neck without it running down the sides of the guitar and onto my pants.
3) the applicator tip makes it easy to precisely apply the oil accurately without mess or waste.
4) believe it or not, the shape of the bottle makes it easy to grab the bottle and apply it without worrying about the angle or side of the applicator. OTHER PRODUCTS COME IN A flat bottle with a "lotion-like" top/applicator. You press on the round top and a spout/hole opens up on ONE side of the bottle. If you grab it wrong, you have to put it down and grip it from the other side. When working on guitars, one hand is usually engaged in holding and stabilizing the guitar while the other hand reaches for tools, etc. The bottle/applicator of F-ONE Oil is a really great feature of the product.
5) it takes very little of the product to obtain the desired effect I am enjoying the product and will be using it exclusively on all of my guitars.
I'm a drum sales associate in Wichita, KS and I have to say how much I love your products. Your Cymbal Cleaner will take years of dirt and grime off of a cymbal and restore it to that new shine. I love it to the point that I even made a display showing what all it can do haha. And your Drum Detailer, is just absolutely amazing. I clean our ENTIRE drum department with it, not just the shells or the cymbals, but all the hardware, the glass, the computer screens, everything. It's an amazing product and we get complimented every day on just how clean everything is. I pitch your products to every person that walks through that door, and I just wanted to thank you guys for making truly good products, for a truly good cause.
I just used the Cymbal Cleaner for the first time and I am very impressed. I usually loathe cleaning my cymbals but now I look forward to it. I have a pair of Zildian K Hi-Hat’s that were very dirty and looked awful. I applied the cleaner and when I saw the shine coming thru I stopped and held it up to the light and smiled and said “WOW!!” I ended up cleaning all my cymbals instead of just the Hi-Hat’s like I originally planned.
We use it on everything, and everyone loves it. We do so many TV gigs as well as live shows, our drums have to look great. With Drum Detailer, they do! I know it sounds like an ad, but it is really true. The results speak for themselves.
I used your Amp & Case cleaner on my amp collection. It leaves the amps in like new condition with a nice natural finish, unlike the Armor-all type finishes. It works well with my AMPEG's Diamond blue covering and my old Gibson's heavy burlap style covering not to mention Fender styles.
We love Guitar ONE and all our guys use it!
One product that we want to display is the MusicNomad Guitar Care products. These guys sent us some samples of their polishes, cleaners, and polishing cloths, and we were very impressed. They products have great packaging and are reasonably priced. They will be a perfect add on or last minute holiday gift.
We have tried every polish over the years and this is the best polish we have ever used. The first time we used The Guitar ONE with your Microfiber Suede Polishing Towel it blew us out of the water. We took an old black dirty guitar and gave it a showroom finish in minutes.
This is great stuff. It exceeded our expectations and it is now on every repair bench in our shop.
We just got the samples, I used some on a black guitar, and it made it look like black glass, very impressed!
It’s the only product we endorse, sell and use in our shop.
When stacked up against the cleaning & polishing products we have been using for years, MusicNomad products worked better and faster and we are now using them on all our work.
We use Music Nomad’s Guitar One polish every day, all day here at the Kala workshop for ukuleles and basses. Guitar ONE is a great way to add the final touch to an instrument if you want it to have the professional look. It also adds a soft, glassy feel to the instrument, especially on gloss finishes. It works great for prepping a finish for quick passes on the buffing wheel and does wonders for satin finishes. Great work, Music Nomad!
One-stop shopping for guitar cleaning, polishing, waxing, and protecting, the Guitar ONE ($10.99 retail) is a biodegradable, eco friendly way to get a “show perfect” shine in one easy step. Armed with their microfiber cloth ($6.99 retail), I sprayed a particularly grungy guitar, applied some elbow grease, and viola! It was gleaming. The stuff even smells nice too.
Available for various cleaning and polishing applications. Developed with a concern for being friendly to instruments and the environment. In stores now starting at $8.99.
By far the best products I have ever used. The Guitar Polish and Guitar Wax goes on and off easily and leaves a really silky smooth finish while some polishes and waxes you have to really scrub. The smell is amazing on all the products. I have customers that just want it because of the smell and then they see the end result and they want it even more.”
The Drum Detailer gets off fingerprints from my Cymbals better than any other product I have used. The MusicNomad Cymbal Cleaner is the best way to turn sh*t work into aroma therapy.
Finally a product that combines cleaning, polishing and waxing all in one step. Thanks you just saved me time and my guitar has never looked better and the product smells great !
We love the product and use it on all our repair work or when we recondition an instrument. It’s the best stuff we have ever used. Can’t wait for you guys to finish your testing so we can get it in our store to use as well as get our customers to start using it.
MusicNomad products are THE state of the art polishes for the guitar industry today. Designed for modern finishes, it works better than the best high-end automotive products, and it's environmentally friendly!
Wow!!!!!! My name is Jesse Slater and I am a faithful customer of David and the guys at Morrison Brothers in Mississippi. Dave told me about (The Guitar One) and all I could say was WOW after trying it and seeing for my self what it did for my Black Beauty. I was sold on the other polish we will not call names (form. 65) but now, well I haven’t had anything this good since black gold you know Texas T. I just wish the guys at Morrison Brothers would take back the unused other stuff. Thanks again MusicNomad and Morrison Brothers you guys put the shine back in my eyes.
I've used a handful of cleaners & polishes during the course of my 10 years in the guitar business. Hands down, Music Nomad's Guitar One is the best! It goes on easily & smells great. But best of all it makes our guitars look and feel like silk! It gives the finish a 3D effect and the neck a smooth non sticky feel! It's liquid gold! Thank you guys!
I have recently tried the Cradle Cube from Music Nomad. It was originally designed for string instruments but I have found it to be perfect for propping wind instruments as well. The angle is just right and the v-groove helps keep an instrument from rolling off the cube, a very common problem when using a flat block. The v-groove also helps hold the instrument in different rotations, not always possible with a flat block. While the flat block is a very useful tool for many things, it is no match for the Cradle Cube when propping instruments. I'm very happy to have the Cradle Cube as part of my work bench. Thanks, Music Nomad!!
A colleague of mine introduced me to Music Nomad products and I was immediately blown away. Guitars shine and my customers are super happy. Mega awesome!
I've been using the T-slide lubricant on my trombone the last few weeks and I love it. I don't even need to spray any water on the slide and it moves completely free of any friction. Great stuff!
"We've found MusicNomad's high quality products to be the perfect solution to keeping your instruments clean, protected, and set up for maximum playability"
We really like the Lacquer Polish for cleaning the wood bodies of the bassoon. It cleans off all the grime and doesn’t leave fingerprints on the clean surface when we're finished. Your Silver Polish cuts right through the tarnish and leaves a clean smooth feel on the keys. It doesn’t feel gritty at all like some polishes we have used.
"Hands Down the Very Best Cymbal Cleaner I've ever used!"
Having worked in the piano business for 34+ years, I have tried many different piano polishes. Both of your polishes do a great job, but I have never seen a polish remove fingerprints, oil and grime from satin finish like your KEY ONE polish does; and it dries with no residue or film left over! Thanks for making a great product
In almost 30 years in the guitar business, I've never heard so many people talk about cleaning products! Music Nomad has taken instrument care to a whole new level. They obviously put a lot of thought and innovation into their products and have the quality to back it up. There's a reason so many people talk about this stuff...it works that good.
