Newtone Michael Messer Resonator Guitar Strings

Newtone Michael Messer Resonator Guitar Strings were established in 1992 and are the ultimate strings for all resonator guitars. Handmade from the finest materials for extra volume, sustain and purity of tone. These strings are designed to have perfect tension on resonator guitars whether you play in regular or in open tunings. At first sight these gauges seem very heavy. By utilising a principle used in the 1920s that uses a round core rather than the more modern hexagonal one, greater string life and easier playability can be achieved. 

All guitars sound better with heavier strings, the problem is playing them! Michael Messer Resonator Guitar Strings tune to pitch at lower tension than other strings of the same gauge. They make resonator guitars sound amazing, and because they tune to pitch at lower tension there is no strain on the neck or cones.

Michael Messer worked with Newtone Strings on designing a series of strings specifically for Resonator guitars. These strings are designed to have perfect when playing in regular or open tunings.
