Diagnosing how level your frets and fingerboard has never been easier with MusicNomad’s patent pending Tri-Beams.
Tri- Beams was designed by our Sonoma, CA (USA) team, creating a new higher standard with their unique 3 wall triangle design. Using the highest quality aluminum and manufacturing techniques ensures straightness of the entire length and critically important polished, smooth flat edges. Made with premium quality 6063-T5 Aluminum has a blue anodized finish that is extremely durable, abrasion resistant and does not peel or chip. Imprecision is eliminated through single setup, continuous 5-axis CNC producing flawless features on all surfaces of our innovative triangle 3 wall design that is easy to hold and flex-free. Both are designed to be used on Electric and Acoustic Guitars.
“For over a year, we worked closely with a handful of high volume repair shops to design and test them,” says Rand Rognlien, CEO of MusicNomad.” They all appreciated the unique 3 wall precision and accuracy design with the bonus features etched into the beams like the fret scale lengths you will find on the Tri-Beam 3 ‘n 1 Straight Edge MN820,” says Rognlien
Tri-Beam 3 ‘n 1 Straight Edge ruler & scale length ruler sets a new higher standard. Their unique 3 wall triangle design gives you the 3 critical lengths 17.6″ (44.7cm), 12″ (30.5cm), 6.5″ (16.5cm) to isolate and identify global or localized fret and fingerboard issues up and down the neck. A big bonus, the Tri-Beam has SAE and Metric ruler markings plus 13 of the most popular guitar and bass fret scale lengths to quickly check the scale length you are working on.
Tri-Beam 3 ‘n 1 Dual Notched Straight Edge & Precision Straight Edge sets a new higher standard. Their unique 3 wall triangle design gives you two notched straight edges custom designed to cover more fret scale lengths ranging from 24.625″ to 25″ and 25.34″ to 25.625″ to measure the flatness of your fretboard and neck relief. Rotate to the 3rd side to use the 17.6″ (44.7cm) “notch-free” straight edge to check the levelness of your frets.
Both Tri-Beams are available now, not compatible with basses at this time.
