Bed time... I don't think so. Not when you have the new LMI plunge Dremel base and a curly mahogany set that needs a sound port. I Love it. That was my first try at it. It knock off bout 15-20min of work! I knew exactly what I needed if for when you told me you had some with you at the GAL. I love that base and the light attachment is beyond perfect!

Bar Fretwire

FRETWIREBarFWBAR

 

Bar fretwire was commonly used on stringed instruments before the turn of the 20th century. It was used on some Martins™ into the 1930's. Bar fretwire is more difficult to install than today's extruded, tanged wire. If you need the wire to be a bit thinner, it can be rolled on a jeweler's mill to thin it out.

Our bar fretwire:

  • measures .059" wide x .157" tall x 23.5" long
    (1.5mm wide x 4mm tall x 59.7cm long)

  • has an 18% nickel/silver composition
    (18% nickel, 20% zinc and 62% copper)

  • has a Vicker's Hardness of HV5/230 (+/-15)
