Newtone Strings was founded in 1985 by Malcolm Newton, who started out in life as a British coal miner and never learned to play an instrument. He did, however, learn to make excellent acoustic guitar strings by hand, a tradition that others continue today.

These boutique strings are known for their exceptional tone and long life. Newtone makes many using a round core wire instead of the hex wire that's more common, and the added core flexibility adds warmth to the tone.
