For Musicians and Luthiers
Sintoms designs and produces frets together with musicians and luthiers. The selection of materials, the shape and the weight are composed for an optimum playability, sound, sustain, durability and easy installation. With Sintoms frets you reduce the installation time.
The ingredients for quality
For each fret, the best quality materials are selected to support and improve the sound of your guitar making it more natural and rich. Weather you prefer the extra hard or the Elite adamant hard nickel silver, Russian stainless steel or beautiful bell bronze, Sintoms frets are high wear resistance and increase the playing time.
The design for success
Frets by Sintoms’ design not only look and sound great, but they are also easy to install and comfortable to play. With their technology of ‘ringing’ and ‘frill’ they bring additional sustain to your instrument. The unique patent pending design of Zero frets, which can be placed straight against the nut of an existing guitar in just 10 minutes, is a sound example of Sintoms clever innovations.
