Highly regarded by guitarists for tone and longevity, the Newtone Nickel Masters strings are made with nickel wrapping over hexagonal cores. The result is punchy brightness and warm sound. They're offered in a wide range of gauges to satisfy every instrument, style of playing and individual taste. Six basic sets, ranging from the ultralight to heavy, are available. Hybrid gauge sets (NLT series) feature light top strings and heavy bottom strings in three different gauges from ultralight to light. These strings allow for easier bending of the top three strings, while giving you more sustain and a fatter tone on the bottom. With the Newtone Nickel Masters, players rave about the tuning stability and intonation.
