Aluminium Fret Rocker Luthier Guitar Tool For Sale
ALUMINIUM FRET ROCKER
The most efficient way to check whether your frets are level. Uneven frets are the prime cause of unwanted buzzing.
The TECHNOFRET Fret Rocker is an indispensable tool both for guitar techniciansand guitar players.
The stainless steel version has sold in hundreds to professional guitar techs and enthusiasts alike, so we have decided to manufacture a budget version in aluminium specifically for the guitarist who would like to have an instant resource to check his frets, who wants the same accuracy, but doesn't want to outlay double figures for a stainless steeltool.
Manufactured from 2.00 mm thick aluminium with an attractive frosted finish, four straightedges of differing length in one tool allow the operative to span every set of three adjacent fretsall the way from the first three frets on a 34" scale bass to the top three frets on a 24.65" scale guitar.
Just as in the stainless steel version, each edge is precision machined, ground and lapped to an unprecedented level of straightness. By laying the Fret Rocker along three frets and gently rocking it, it can be instantly determined whether any of the frets are higher or lower than they should be, and steps can then be taken to remedy the situation, either byfractionally raising (and gluing) a low fret, or by tapping down, and if necessary filing,a high fret.
In use, you would test it alongside each string while the instrument is strung to pitch, as frequently the frets can be OK for five strings and exhibit a slight rock at one string.
The straight edges are so accurate that discrepancies in fret height of well under a thousandth of an inch can be instantly felt and detected.
This is an extremely useful accessory for guitar players, especially when buying a new instrument - test the guitar in the shop and make sure you are getting an accurately fretted instrument. Also great for periodically monitoring the condition of your frets to determine if you need a professional fret job.
At a bargain price of £6.99, thisprecision toolbelongs in every guitar case.
