Sintoms Ltd has developed a much harder wearing form of Nickel Silver fret wire. It comes under their new “Elite” series of fret wire, packaged in 6 x 260mm curved pieces with a radius of 7.5 -8.5”.
The harder wearing fret wire has a Nickel content of 25%, compared to the current standard of 18%.
For those who want harder wearing frets without moving to stainless steel these offer a great alternative. Until now the only non-stainless steel alternative for hard wearing frets was Bronze or EVO Gold fret wire, both of which have a strong “golden” colour. The new 25% Nickel Silver metal is a bright silver colour which compliments nickel or chrome guitar hardware perfectly.
We currently have 3 crown-width options 2.3mm, 2.5mm and 2.8mm. Each cost £10.50 per pack of 6 pieces.
