The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

Newtone Master Class Custom Gauge Twelfth Fret 40th Anniversary Edition

Newtone strings are a truly handmade string, built one at a time to Malcolm Newton’s exacting standards.

Newtone strings are consistently true and balanced and use only top quality Phosphor Bronze and pure Nickel windings on tin plated round and hex steel cores. The high quality round core construction on his acoustic strings results in a fuller bass and rounder tone with noticeably lower tension than other strings. Thousands of our customers now play only Newtone Strings Master Class Phosphor Bronze.

In celebration of The Twelfth Fret’s 40th anniversary along with the support of Newtone strings, we produced a signature edition of our most popular selling Newtone gauge – Custom.
