We're delighted to be the exclusive worldwide 3rd party retailer of Newtone Strings. Being handmade right here in the UK in Derbyshire, Newtone have developed a cult following in recent years and are revered for their outstanding playability and tone.

Newtone's Heritage range has been specifically designed to have a balanced and lower tension across each set in comparison to 'standard' sets. Newtone are well recognised for using round cores in many of their sets, and the Heritage sets are no different. What does this actually mean? Well there are numerous advantages to having low tension strings. One of the biggest advantages being an increase in comfort and playability, especially important for players suffering from arthritis or tendonitis. There's also an added advantage for players that use vintage guitars with light bracing as these strings won't twist the neck or pull on the bridge.

**PLEASE NOTE** Due to these strings being wound over a round core, Newtone ask players to refrain from cutting the strings until the strings are fully installed and tuned up to pitch.

Here's what Newtone say about their Heritage strings;

"These strings are designed to have reduced and virtually equal tension on each string. They are made on Round cores with unique core-to-wrap ratios, so the gauges which match up with some of our standard sets are not the same at all! 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.

I'm sure they are good strings, but not at all appropriate for my Faith parlour guitar I now realise. Intonation poor, 3rd and 4th strings buzz. Perfectly in tune 5th string (when played open), hopelessly sharp when fretted on the third fret for a C chord.
My fault; shouldn't have gone with such light strings
