We offer only quality fret wire drawn from the finest 18% hard nickel/silver to give long life with steel strings. The composition of this fret wire, while called "nickel/silver," contains no silver at all. The ingredients are brass and nickel. For general reference, we use Dunlop's fret numbers, however, actual fret dimensions vary somewhat from batch to batch. Our nickel/silver fretwire is rated at HV 170 on the Vickers hardness scale.
Stainless steel is both harder (Vickers hardness HV 300 +/-20) and smoother than nickel/silver fretwire. For general reference, we use Dunlop's fret numbers, however, actual fret dimensions vary somewhat from batch to batch.
Our beautiful gold fret wire is a nickel-free copper alloy similar in color to 12k gold! This is not the same brass color as the Warwick wire. Our gold fret is solid throughout and is almost as hard as stainless steel. It polishes up nicely for a super fast, glass-like feel providing effort free string bending! Vickers hardness rating is HV 250 +/-20.
NOTE: Our gold fret wire is hypo-allergenic for those that have allergies to nickel.
