Arch Top Nickel
Specially made for the archtop guitar and favored by jazz players, Newtone's Archtop Nickel Wound strings have a unique construction which gives them a distinctive feel and sound. Unlike typical electric guitar strings, the archtop wound strings have a double wrapping of nickel over a round core. This gives a warm tone but without the finger squeal of single wrapped strings. Guitarists report better intonation than flat wounds and more comfortable playing than round wound strings. They're available in 4 gauge sets which include .011 to .050 (AM-L), .013 to .056 (AM-M), .012 to .052 (AM-ML) and .014 to .058 (AM-H). Our customers rave about the mellow sound, tonal clarity, smooth feel and long life. Newtown Archtop Nickel Wound are the ultimate strings for your favorite archtop guitar.
