I'm really proud to announce that my favourite strings are now officially available as a Jon Gomm Signature set! Handmade in Derbyshire by Newtone. These are my personal super-heavy gauge specially chosen after years of experimentation to have a really easy tension at low tunings, and to give a tone that is warm and soulful.
I tune my guitar a tone below concert pitch, and quite often much lower than that. With these strings that brings out a warmth and character completely different to the usual twangy, trebley steel-string guitar tone. Or maybe if your voice has dropped in pitch over time, these strings could be the answer to your prayers! And because of the heavy gauge (14-68) and low tension I have never broken one of these strings on a gig, ever.
To order some for yourself, just email Neil at firstname.lastname@example.org - they are handmade to order, so they might take a few weeks to arrive.
