    For hands dry as gin ...

    Graph Tech's Dry N' Glide is one of those products that might be the final 2% you are looking for. Dry N' Glide comes in a 20 gram roll-on container.


    What You Need to Know


    A roll-on talc, Dry N' Glide is designed to keep your fretting hand unfettered from sticky sweat or soapy residue. Dry N' Glide isn't just baby powder; it is PH balanced to not create a reaction with the finish of your instrument while it neutralizes acidity in your hands and removes moisture.


    In practice, it reduces friction and makes maneuvering the neck of an instrument less cumbersome in humid situations. While I didn't view my hands as needing help in doing their job (especially in the relatively dry environment of the heated indoors during the winter), I immediately felt the benefit of Dry N’ Glide, especially when jumping down multiple frets.


    The roll-on application makes for even, controlled distribution of the powder that quickly disseminates across your hands as you rub your hands together. My experience during several week of evaluation was that there was no residue or buildup left on my instruments despite multiple applications.




    Things can get a bit gummy if you go overboard on application (which you would certainly know).




    Graph Tech Dry N’ Glide addresses an issue that, candidly, I wasn’t aware existed. If your fretting hand has ever skidded along the neck of your instrument, you’ve experienced the exact problem it fixes. Body chemistry and your environment will dictate how big a difference Dry N’ Glide will make in your playing, but there wasn’t a condition in my evaluation where it wasn’t an improvement.  HC -
