StewMac Narrow Fretwire, Narrow/Low, 96-foot pack (1 lb)


Availability: In stock



Narrow/Low size fretwire is the modern standard for mandolins. Popular for ukulele, too. This size is sometimes used for approximating old-style small banjo fretwire. Instrument makers and repair shops rely on us for the highest quality 18% nickel-silver fretwire.

StewMac Narrow/Low 96-foot pack comes in 2-foot long straight pieces, delivered in a clear storage tube that keep your wire organized and your workbench uncluttered.

Fret Width: .053" (1.35mm)

Fret Crown: .037" (0.94mm)

Fret Tang Height: .054" (1.37mm)

Our fretwire is sized to fit a 0.023" (0.58mm) fret slot width.

Fretwire is made in a variety of crown heights. Note that after the frets are installed and leveled, they can lose from .004" to .010" in height. High fretwire has a crown height of .045" or more. It may offer more note sustain due to its slightly greater mass, and more fret dressings are possible between refrettings. Low fretwire is often useful for partial refret jobs.
