Hosa Technology announces the expansion of its Lizard Spit instrument care product offerings. Hosa is now stocking Lizard Spit Cymbal Polish as well as Slick Nutz, an advanced graphite lubricant designed for all string instruments.
Lizard Spit Cymbal Polish is specially formulated for ease of application and removal. Finger prints, stick contact, tarnish, and dirt from road cases commonly dim the appearance of cymbals and can negatively impact their sound quality. Lizard Spit cymbal polish provides a professional shine to a cymbal's surface and it also helps restore the crisp sound of a new cymbal. Additionally, this polish has a special barrier protectant that provides a longer-lasting shine.
Lizard Spit Cymbal Polish is a highly effective metal polish. Its easy on / easier off formula, combined with the barrier protectant provides a longer lasting shine. Lizard Spit cymbal polish is intended for use on all raw brass cymbals and will not scratch the surface.
Lizard Spit cymbal polish also makes a terrific choice for cleaning chrome plated surfaces including cymbal stands, rims, and other hardware such as microphone stands. On guitars, it restores the finish on nickel or chrome plated tuners, face plates, bridges, and jacks.
Slick Nutz is a unique innovation designed to help improve a stringed instrument's tuning, pitch, response, and resonance. Unwanted friction has plagued stringed instruments for centuries. Now, Slick Nutz puts a much needed end to this problem. Slick Nutz is specially designed for use on all stringed instruments — from guitars to cellos — and is safe for all surfaces. Applied to guitar nut slots, Slick Nutz helps to stabilize tuning, reduce friction at the nut and bridge, reduce pitch drift, increase string response, and maximize instrument resonance.
Unlike messy oil or grease-based lubes that collect dust and, as a result, inhibit string resonance, Slick Nutz is a graphite lubricant that is dust-repellant, self-drying, all-natural, greaseless, non-toxic, and contains no VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). Slick Nutz leaves a thin veneer of graphite and carnauba on surfaces where friction causes damage, such as broken strings or poor operation of mechanical parts. Slick Nutz can be applied to bridge saddles, threaded parts, neck nuts, tremolo pivots, case hinges, road case latches, and tuners — anywhere friction is an issue.
Jonathan Pusey, Hosa Technology's National Marketing Manager, commented on the expansion of the Lizard Spit product line. "Lizard Spit products have emerged as the finest instrument care products available on the market. With the addition of Lizard Spit Cymbal Polish and Slick Nutz alongside the Lizard Spit Guitar Polish and Fretboard Conditioner in our line, Hosa now offers a comprehensive line of maintenance products that are truly world-class. I'm confident musicians everywhere will come to appreciate the benefits Lizard Spit products offer."
