Budget Ukulele Fret Dressing & Crowning Tool

Image Posted on Updated on

Initially I stumbled on this little budget ukulele fret dressing & crowning tool myself (well with a little help from my wife) and then I found something similar being used by ukulele luthier Gordon Mayer of Mya-Moe in his video on ukulele fret dressing and crowning, which you can find on the UK Ukee ukulele Tricks page. Using a beautician’s finger nail buffer to dress and crown ukulele frets and fret ends, instead of expensive professional ukulele fret crowning and dressing files.

With 4 different fine grit surfaces mounted on a firm sponge block, this budget ukulele fret dressing & crowning tool can be used for re-crowning the tops of the ukulele frets, removing scratches left on the ukulele frets after fret levelling, all the way through to polishing the ukulele frets and fret ends to a high finish.

Top Tip – Obviously it doesn’t last as long as a metal file, it should do for dressing the frets on at least 1-2 ukulele. It is similar to using wet & dry sandpaper as some ukulele luthiers do, however as the fret dressing surfaces are bound to a sponge block, the budget ukulele fret dressing & crowning tool slides nicely over the frets and fret ends giving a smooth, shiny, rounded finish to the ukulele frets.
