In most of the modern instruments frets are thin metal strips (nickel, Steel or alpaca) encrusted on the fingerboard. Frets are placed on the fingerboard and separate from one another. This distance is one of the variable that determine the tonality of the musical note produced.
When touching a string in a fret a musical note comes out. Frets are spaced according a maths rule. Each fret produce a note in a half tone higher than the previous fret. Frets divide the fingerboard in half tones. On the guitar, a fret corresponds to half tone. In Maderas Barber we offer you different fret models, with stripes or flat, with different crown dimensions for the stringed instruments.
