“After years of experimenting with many different brands, gauges and tensions, I fell into the habit of alternating between gauge 12-59’s and 13-62’s strings. I found that string companies which allow you to purchase custom hand-made strings are extremely rare, and this is just one of the many reasons why I love Newtone Strings, and why I will never go back to mass-produced strings.
I use gauge 12-59 strings when practicing, as this allows me to perform for longer periods of time whilst preventing injury (I’ve suffered from Thoracic Outlet Syndrome in the past so I have to be quite careful). During live and studio performances I tend to switch to gauge 13’s so I can achieve a fuller sound.
The low E and A string are thicker than your standard 12-52/ 13-56 strings. This creates a warm, powerful, bassy tone, and when combined with the round core, reduces the top end frequencies and adds more mid-range to the strings. This creates a very distinctive tone, which is much nicer than your average steel-string guitar sound.”
