The FIDDLE FRETTER was developed to help students learn the early stages of violin and viola playing. This is a critical time when many give up this difficult instrument due to frustration when trying to achieve the correct notes on the fingerboard. It also helps musicians who may already play instruments like the guitar or mandolin and have already developed an ear for music. For those players it is disheartening to be continually making flat & sharp notes when playing violin or viola.


The paper thin nylon FIDDLE FRETTER slips under the strings of your existing violin or viola and sticks to the fingerboard. One just has to loosen the strings and part them to install the FIDDLE FRETTER. It takes a couple of minutes and nothing on the violin or viola has to be changed. With the FIDDLE FRETTER installed, just tune up and play. You have a fiddle with 24 flexed metal frets that are calculated and positioned to give you exact fingering as on any fretted instrument.

The FIDDLE FRETTER is self adhesive and can easily be removed anytime and put back on anytime.

Vibrating string lengths:
328mm for 4/4 violin or 14" 35.5cm Viola
305mm for 3/4 violin or 13" 33cm Viola
286mm for 1/2 violin or 12" 30.5 Viola




Each Pack contains 1 FIDDLE FRETTER.
Please choose from the following styles: 

The "STEALTH FRETTER" has 24 Black frets and NO dots.
(Blends with the fingerboard and is barely noticeable)

The "OPTIC FRETTER" has 24 Silver frets with Silver dots.
 (smaller sizes may have golden frets and dots.)
(Blends with the fingerboard and looks a lot like a guitar or mandolin fingerboard)


The fantastic Fiddle Fretter was invented by Peter Story who is from Bangor, Northern Ireland and now lives, teaches and performs in Nova Scotia, Canada. He majored in Piano and Classical Guitar at the Ulster College of Music in Belfast, Northern Ireland. He has made numerous recordings over the years and developed the Fiddle Fretter to make learning and playing violin easier and more fun especially in the early stages of instruction.

Review On Nov 30, 2015 by Anonymous of Cecilia, KY
Title: Another Great Beginner''s Tool
Comments: I have purchased the Fiddle Fretter when I began learning to play adult fiddle. It has been a huge help in learning where the notes are in the beginning.
Easy application and easy off. I did have to use some alcohol to remove some of the residual glue. Came off without a hitch. Eventually, a student would want to take the fretter off, but for the first few months trying to get the bowing right, knowing where your notes are is very reassuring!
