Buena Park, CA – May 2010… Hosa Technology, the leading innovator of analog and digital connectivity solutions for the modern musician and distributor of the new Goby Labs instrument care products, proudly announces the first four products in the company’s instrument care line. Featuring a water-based guitar polish, a fingerboard conditioner, an anti-bacterial microphone sanitizer, and an anti-bacterial case freshener, the new Goby Labs products are the perfect solutions for maintaining one’s prized musical instruments and accessories in the best possible condition.
Goby Labs Water-Based Guitar Polish is the only mass-market, water-based guitar polish currently available-making it an environmentally friendly instrument care solution while also providing distinct benefits. Unlike oil-based polish, Goby Labs Water-Based Guitar Polish leaves no fingerprints on the just-cleaned instrument surface. Using a combination of de-ionized water and polymers, the product’s non-streaking, oil-free formula lifts oil and fingerprints, leaving the surface spotless. Made with biodegradable materials, Goby Labs Water-Based Guitar Polish is safe for use on nitrocellulose lacquers.
Ideal for all fretted instruments with porous-wood fingerboards, Goby Labs Orange-Powered Fingerboard Conditioner cleans and conditions all unfinished wood surfaces. Formulated from mineral-based white oil and citrus-based d-Limonene-both biodegradable materials -Goby Labs Orange-Powered Fingerboard Conditioner provides long-lasting moisture to revitalize old, dry fingerboards. Easy to use, the product ships with a no-spill, twist-cap applicator.
Finally, there’s a product to keep one’s microphones clean and sanitary. Goby Labs Anti-Bacterial Microphone Sanitizer eliminates odors and kills 99.99% of the germs that routinely collect on microphones. Manufactured with biodegradable materials, including de-ionized water, alcohol, and Benzalkonium chloride-and treated with a pleasant scent-Goby Labs Anti-Bacterial Microphone Sanitizer is a fast-drying formula that is ideal for sanitizing hands, skin, and equipment.
For those busy musicians who wish they had a convenient means of keeping their instrument case in better shape, Goby Labs Anti-Bacterial Case Freshener is just the ticket! Formulated with biodegradable materials, including de-ionized water, a proprietary 5% sugar-based enzyme, DMDM hydantoin (an antimicrobial formaldehyde releaser preservative), and scent, Goby Labs Anti-Bacterial Case Freshener is fast drying, safe for use on most gear, eliminates odors, and kills 99.99% of the germs with which it comes in contact.
Jonathan Pusey, Hosa Technology’s National Marketing Manager, commented on addition of Goby Labs products to the vast offerings of Hosa Technology. “Our new Goby Labs products represent a giant step forward in the area of instrument care products,” explained Pusey. “Not only are these products environmentally friendly and, hence, safe to use, they clean and disinfect the tools that musicians use day in and day out. They provide a convenient means of helping one stay healthy by minimizing contact with the myriad of germs and other contaminant that are frequently encountered in public places where musicians perform. Using biodegradable formulations, these products keep one’s gear clean, spotless, and sanitary. I’m absolutely convinced these products will be greatly appreciated by those who try them.”
