Dont you love it when a product:

-does what it claims

-does it well

-is a good deal?

I used my PlanetWaves Pro for the first time last night. The pin puller works smoothly, and the string winder doesnt come unscrewed constantly like every other one I've owned!

The componenet that really made my day was the string cutter. The 'blade' aint that sharp, but easily whacks the end of a low E string. Since there is only a little exposed metal, all of which is smooth and rounded, the risk of scratching your guitar is minimal, and the small cutting head makes it easy to trim the string very close to the peg.

The Pro String Winder appears to be well built, and I suspect that it will last me quite a while. Even if if conks out in a year (not that I think it will), its a good bargain, and I'll buy another.

Great product!

The string winder is larger and more comfortable to hold that any of the 'cheap' winders you buy at music stores. The winder part has smooth motion and the cutter works much better than expected. I thought maybe it would bend the strings rather than cut them. But so far, it snips cleanly through the strings and gets pretty close tot he peg head. If you change strings a lot, I would also recommend to yout he Planet Waves Headstand.

I like Planet Waves products, and have several. This one needs a redesign, though.

I also have the PW "Ergonomic" string winder - which is awesome. Where the ergo one is soft and round, this is hard and angular. On the ergo one, the string stretcher is easy to access; This one doesn't work nearly as well.

The real problem: placing the winder on tuning button. On the ergo one, the hole is just the right depth for the various tuning keys that one might encounter. On this one - BEWARE! - it's much deeper, and the edges are much sharper. I ended up dinging the headstock of my acoustic near the tuning keys - just by simple winding - doesn't happen on the other one. It wasn't until after, of course, and further inspection and comparison between the two that I discovered the problem. It's a big problem!!

(The cutter is nice, although it's pretty easy to pinch your fingers. No biggie, I suppose.)

I highly recommend the "Planet Waves Ergonomic String Winder." This one? Not so much. So, I'd stay away from this one and get the other one.

After a few years of using pliers to pull out my string pegs, and to cut the strings, I was frustrated. I had broken too many pegs, and cutting the strings took too much effort. I had to fold, cut, bend back and forth, etc. My father finally gave me permission to buy a string cutter, and I flew to Amazon and started browsing. Immediately, this one caught my eye due to the high number of positive reviews. I purchased it with good hopes...

and was not disappointed. The string cutter is excellent; it takes very little effort and cuts in one snip. The string winder makes it very easy to wind my strings, and I am no longer sitting for minutes just winding the tuners by hand. Finally, my favorite, despite being the simplest feature on the tool, the peg remover. At first, it seems a little iffy to use. But! It's wonderful. You just shove it under the peg, and the peg seems to pop out by itself. I used this tool to replace my old strings, and I was extremely happy with my purchase.

Also, my friend saw I had this, borrowed it to replace HIS strings, and fell in love with it. He now owns one too.

Nothing is really essential in this little guy, but it puts two helpful things together on one. I always forget stuff, so for me its great to know I just need this and I'm set for tuning and cutting. It does both really well, and frankly, its not that expensive. I don't think its a necessity, but I would recommend it if you're thinking about it. Which you probably are. Because you're reading this.

I am a guitar string changing 'newbie' but these things make it so easy. I just bought these and watched a video on youtube about how to do it (sadly after I let my cousin try and he broke a string) and its so easy. I changed all the strings within about 20 min. This tool does everything you need. Plus its small so I carry it around with my little bag that has picks, a tuner, a metronome, extra strings etc. Good price, I would recommend it.

I love the pin puller the most. The bottom of it is very thin so that it slides under the pin very easily. This was something that was not as easy to use on my $2.50 string winder.

The cutter was also fun to use. Snips very easily, but the grip is not that easy to maneuver. Still it is a very effective tool.

The string winder was also very good. My hands don't move in a perfect circular motion, and no where near it either, but this seems to help me achieve that fairly well, compared to my $2.50 string winder.

I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who is planning on changing strings.

this string winder is good and served its purpose. But be careful when using on expensive vintage, or clearcoated guitars, because it is not rubber, or a soft material if you spin it too aggressively and fast, and it runs into your headstock, it could chip or leave a mark on your clearcoat,

if they rubber coated the arm part, that would be the best.

mostly my fault tho, so go ahead and buy it if your'e thinking while reading this, 'this guy is an idiot'
