HOSCO A.A.A. Fret Shield

Strong Points

① Prevents strings from scratching frets.
② Absorbs the humidity to become 50-60%.
③ Odor eliminating effect.

When you put your fretted instrument into the case,
please use the HOSCO A.A.A. Fret Shield to keep the good condition.

 ● AHM-660 : 6 x 60 cm for guitars / bass guitars  MSRP USD 14.99
 ● AHM-530 : 5 x 30 cm for mandolins / ukuleles  MSRP USD 11.99
This product consists of Polypropylene (surface) and Silica gel type B (inside).
The property of the Silica gel type B is maintaining medium humidity (50-60%).
So if the humidity is high in the case, the Silica gel will absorb the humidity to 50-60%.
On the other hand, if the humidity is low in the case,
the Silica gel will not absorb more humidity.
On the contrary, if the Silica gel is holding some humidity,
it will release the humidity in the case.
Also, the surface material is soft and it prevents the strings from touching the frets when an instrument is in the case.
Installation is very easy!
Just insert the HOSCO A.A.A. Fret Shield between the strings and the fingerboard.

Please let us explain why the CTS metric pots are needed.
As you know, most of the CTS pots in the musical industry is US size (inch).
People would like to use the same parts as the instrument originally has when they need to replace something.
But we think that some people like the quality of CTS pots even if the CTS pots are not used to their instruments.
There are many instruments used metric parts in the world.
If the players like the quality of CTS pots, they would like to replace the original metric pots to our CTS metric ones.
Pre-orders are welcomed!
