The best way to protect & maintain your fretted instrument

Putting polish over polish multiple times is not a good idea without doing proper cleaning before putting more polish on.  You end up with a buildup of product (polish & grime) and most often a streaky mess... Most other "polishes" do this, especially products containing oils, waxes, and other greasy additives.  A polish may remove scratches and make things more shiny and pretty, however, you must first CLEAN IT! with Black Diamond Strings® CLEAN IT! Instrument Cleaner & Polish to eliminate months of buildup of grime and oils that may harm your instrument.  


Black Diamond Strings® CLEAN IT! Instrument Cleaner & Polish does add a surface protectant that helps keep High Gloss finishes looking their best and minimize new marring without the liability of added abrasives.

Black Diamond Strings® CLEAN IT! Instrument Cleaner & Polish doesn't change the sheen or original look/patina.  It works great on flat, satin, and high gloss sheens. Consider it a maintenance/detail product that cleans and leaves a soft feel that doesn't build up after multiple uses. 

Fine instrument finishes such as nitrocellulose, urethanes, and polyesters should never be dry wiped.  Black Diamond Strings® CLEAN IT! Instrument Cleaner & Polish sprayed into a cloth or onto the finish provides the lubrication needed to prevent scratching from a dry cloth. It cleans to the original finish and adds protection, reducing static cling and dust while removing skin oils (fingerprints/smudging).  The dirt and grime, especially combined with skin oils/sweat, are what degrade finishes over the long haul. 

Black Diamond Strings® CLEAN IT! Instrument Cleaner & Polish  is a clean, simple, effective product.  It's not a rejuvenator or miracle in a bottle.  It's designed to keep an instrument looking as original as possible.  


Instructons: Spray cloth until damp and gently wipe instrument. Safe to use on all finishes, composits, and metals  


Black Diamond Strings® Soft Touch picks have exceptional durability. We use Delrin. Unlike traditional picks made of celluloid or nylon, Delrin picks do not wear down as quickly. 


Play Hard: Our picks can withstand heavy playing and prolonged use without losing shape or integrity. This durability makes Black Diamond Strings® Soft Touch picks cost-effective for guitarists.


Play Secure: Another notable advantage is their excellent grip. Our picks have a textured surface and matte finish to provide a secure hold, allowing guitarists to maintain control and precision while strumming or picking while reducing the chances of accidental slippage.


Play More: They are known for their versatility, making them suitable for many musical genres and playing styles. The balanced flexibility allows guitarists to achieve both smooth strumming and precise picking. 


Whether you prefer gentle fingerstyle playing or aggressive shredding, Black Diamond Strings® Soft Touch picks can adapt to your desired technique and deliver consistent results.
