And what's normal?

The reason I am asking is because I did a fret leveling and recrowning on one of my ukes, and while it's now perfectly even the frets are of course lower than they were.

Atm they are 0,8mm high or for you americans 0,0315".

So how high are yours, and what's preferred?

Thanks!

My perfect fret size is 2.1mm wide and 1.25mm high, they are the StewMac acoustic guitar Med/High size. Personally i find the fret size really important to playability and ease of fretting.

I measured my other 3 ukes,

They are in order of height:
1.1mm = 0,043
1mm = 0,039
0.8mm = 0,0315

and from my first post

0.8mm = 0,0315
