Folkcraft® Fret Wire, Four Feet

Item Number 2340081

Regular price $8.00

Our premium fret wire is 18% nickel-silver and comes pre-straightened, so you don't have to go through the hassle of working with curved fret wire. Dulcimer fret wire is sold in pieces that are twelve inches long. This package contains four one-foot pieces, for a total of four feet of fret wire. (It will take roughly three feet of fret wire to fully fret a diatonic mountain dulcimer.)
Our fret wire is a perfect size for use in building Appalachian dulcimers. The crown height (above the fingerboard) is .037 inches, the crown width is .080 inches, and the tang width is .019 inches. On this straightened wire, you'll want to cut a fret slot at least .058 inches deep, so that the crown will sit flush with your fingerboard. This item is also part of our dulcimer hardware kit.

Fret wire install

Wire goes in very nice, use the right gauge saw and the process of a fret board is tedious but works out just fine
