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 four sets gauged from light to heavy. 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.
