Newtone strings are all individually handmade in Derbyshire England - they may feel or play differently to those from other manufacturers because of their use of round core wire in all of their acoustic guitar strings - most other acoustic guitar strings are made on an hexagonal core. Round cored strings have a slightly lower tension to pitch than hexagonal cored strings, meaning less strain on the guitar neck and soundboard.

They offer a longer life due to there being no angular surfaces under the wrapping wire where dirt can accumulate, deadening the string and increasing it's susceptibility to corrosion. Being at a slightly lower tension allows a heavier gauge set to be used without compromising the 'feel' of the guitar too much, thus providing the benefit of a fuller tone.

Newtone Low Tension Heritage Series Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings

The Newtone Heritage Series are designed to have a reduced and virtually equal tension on each string, with round cores and unique core-to-wrap ratios. There are several advantages of using these strings. Vintage guitars, light braced guitars and people who have problems fretting due to arthritis or tendonitis can use these strings without worrying about twisting or uneven pulling on the bridge. Low tensions also mean ease of fretting.


Gordon Giltrap has given us his first impressions of these strings;
"Anyone who has spent time playing the acoustic guitar will testify to the fact that string gauge and action can make all the difference in the world to how an instrument can respond. I have spent most of my playing life trying to get my guitars to play as easy as possible, and have spent many hours experimenting with different string gauges and coming to the conclusion that it really is a play off between tonality and playability, but at long last here is string that gives the player the best of both worlds.

I have never been a muscular player with the strength that some players are naturally born with, so for me these superb low tension strings are a God send, giving a great sound with a wonderful ease of playing. Enjoy the feel of an electric on your chosen acoustic and experience the difference."

Newtones Strings Reviews…

I came upon your site as I was specifically looking for Newtone strings

after reading a few online articles about round core strings. I thought the

Heritage set would be worth a try on my Martin OM28 which has always had quite a stiff feel to it despite a pretty good set up. The Heritage strings have made it so much easier to play with no loss of tone, which with lighter strings I was expecting to experience. It is possibly a little quieter, but much more balanced and beautifully articulate with these strings, so a definite improvement all round.


With that in mind, I thought I would try the Master Class .012 -.053s on my

OM Brook Taw and again, far more comfortable to play, more balanced sound and really brings a clarity to finger style playing that I have never had before. I have been using D'addario and Elixir for over 20 years

occasionally trying often more expensive alternatives, but always coming

back to one of these two.


I am genuinely taken back by the discovery of Newtone strings, both by how much they improve playability and how good they sound. I thought I should just pass this on.


Thanks for the excellent next day service as well.

Regards,

Jeff Moore

Just got my first set of Newtone Heritage DADGAD strings from you. They are brilliant. I lost the middle finger of my left hand two years ago which lead me to retune to DADGAD but could never get the right strings to get a descent tone out of my Freshman guitar.


The low D always sounded dull even with expensive strings. Your strings give me exactly the tone I was looking for and the low D resonates beautifully.


Thank you so much.
