Rob Compa

Guitarist of Dopapod

"After a gig my strings usually look like they were dipped in tar. On top of that, I'm sort of a neat freak when it comes to clean strings and clean guitars, so The String Cleaner is truly a gift to have."

Mike and Dave


"Both of us have come to rely on Tone Gear's "The String Cleaner" to keep our strings fresh and crisp while we're out on the road rocking shows every night. It's super practical and easy to use, and any guitarist would benefit from having one in their guitar case at all times!”

Dave Roe

Bassists for Johnny Cash

In the early ‘90’s, my friend Hugh Waddell recommended me to Johnny Cash, who hired me to play in his band, the Tennessee Three. He also made me play upright bass, which I did not know how to do! That started my love affair with the upright bass, and slap bass in particular, that lingers till this day. To say that Johnny Cash changed my life would be an understatement. To say that Johnny Cash was the coolest, nicest guy I have ever known would be a MAJOR understatement. After Johnny passed away, I toured and did some recording with Dwight Yoakam. Now that was very cool as well! See what I mean by lucky? Coinciding with all of this, I was a member of the Don Kelley Band for 13 years. This is probably America’s best honky-tonk band, and one of the house bands at Robert’s Western World, and an absolute joy to behold. I learned a lot being a member of that band, and I would heartily recommend it to anyone.
