Testimonials

“I received my order today and I just wanted to tell you thanks. The wood is exactly what I wanted, absolutely beautiful, the packaging was great and I'm looking forward to buying more from you. I've purchased tonewoods from other vendors and ebay before, but even the best from them doesn't compare to the quality and value of what I bought from you. Thanks again!”

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)
