An easy way to make your frets shine! Fret Erasers™ are flexible self-padded rubber blocks embedded with abrasive grits.

They're incredibly handy—use them in sequence as a final step on freshly-crowned frets, to erase fine file marks and scratches. The grits are color-coded for convenience. Frets gleam, and play buttery-smooth.

"I used to wrap abrasive papers around small rubber blocks, but that got a little clumsy. Fret Erasers are simpler and faster. No more sandy grit or sharp steel wool particles."
—Erick Coleman, repairman and StewMac tech advisor

Each Fret Eraser is 2-1/2" x 3/4" x 3/8" (63.50mm x 19.05mm x 9.52mm)

SAVE when you order the complete set of 5 grits.

Why not sooner!?

By far one of the best things I've bought. Shines up frets soooo fast. I just wish they were available sooner.

Good results. Cleaning up is a breeze with the fret eraser.

100% better than Steel Wool, very easy to clean up after.

Good once you figure them out.

I think some people get these expecting them to be magic, but they aren't. However, if you use regular sandpaper first to get rid of scuffs then go through these, you will get a pretty nice shine. Some polishing compound afterwards should get you a nice mirror finish, but these alone won't.

As good as I expected

If your frets look good before you start using these you'll be in good shape. Address any chatter or file marks prior to starting. I found that some 800 grit gold sandpaper prior to using these erasers did the trick nicely. Great tool to have - nice innovation!

Fast and Convinient

A great replacement for steel wool. Easy clean up and takes up less space. I still prefer paper for removing marks and scratches. I use these before a final buffing to make frets gleam.

I just cleaned some tarnished frets with these and they now look better than new with a mirror shine and super fast feel. I've tossed my steel wool for good.

not the shortcut I hoped for

By nick @ instrumentally sound from denver, co

These looked like they'd be a great replacement for sandpaper after rounding frets with a 300 grt diamond crowning file. And while they're ergonomically more friendly than sandpaper they really don't get rid of all the file scratches. The amount of time trying to get those scratches out with the course eraser is better spent with 400 grit sandpaper then going up through the erasers. Even then the polish wasn't as nice if I use paper for the whole process, finishing with steel wool (another product I'd hope to phase out with these).

Not to say they don't do a decent job. If you sand the file scratches out with some 400 wrapped around one of the erasers, then use each one and end with a buffing wheel they'll turn out nice enough.

Over-all they feel better than the alternative but aren't really a time saver. I'll keep using them just because they're cleaner. and on a rosewood board I didn't find it was necessary to use a guard or masking tape since the buffing wheel took care of whatever dirt and small scratches the erasers left in the wood.

Not bad, but not great

By P Smith from Cary, NC

I got these erasers in the hopes of being able to shortcut my fret polishing using the various gradations of micro mesh pads.

While these weren't bad, they didn't give the super polished luster as easily as I'd hoped. The micro mesh still seem to do the best job for me.

waste of money

I find that these work nowhere near as good as gradually finer sand papers wrapped around the diamond crowning files.
