Double edge classic nut file set
Set of 3 files for making your nut sloths. Each file is slightly tapered and has a different thickness on each side for your different string.
This set contains the following sizes in Inches: 0.030/0.038, 0.032/0.042 and 0.035/0.046.
In mm: 0.762/0.965, 0.813/1.067 and 0.889/1.168.
The total length is 190mm with a blade length of 100mm.
Important: these nut files are wedge shaped. When you cut the nut too deep, the cut will become wider.
A good cut will keep the string above the nut for 50%, this will decrease the chance of the string to get caught by the nut.
Only move the file to the front when using, not back and forth.
The nut is an important part of your instrument: it sets the tone for the playability.
With the nut you determine string distance and, together with the bridge, the string height.
The fibrations from the strings are transferred via the nut to the wood of your guitar, it has to be though, smooth and durable. A lot to think about when making your nut!
