Anyone know who makes StewMac's fretwire.
Unless it's changed recently: Polymet.Anyone know who makes StewMac's fretwire.
Cool. Does it have increased hardness? Is the tone and playing slickness impacted in any way?Better quality metal. Jescar is the only wire I have used for several years. I think Stew Mac may have changed suppliers in that time, but no reason to switch away from Jescar.
That is what my luthier just told me. Stewmac sources irs fretwire from Jescar. He just finished my LP refret with Stewmac 149 wire.A conversation with a Jescar rep some 10+ years ago gave me the 'unofficial' impression that Jescar was supplying Stew-Mac with their fretwire.
Of course, that could have changed, or been misinformation.
