Has anyone here tried the gypsy-style strings made by Newtone/Malcolm Newton?
I've had very good experiences with bronze-wound Newtone strings. They not only sound & feel great, they seem to last forever without going dead or breaking.
I'm curious about their "gypsy" strings. They have two "brands": Gitane and Django but damned if I can tell what the difference is. They are not copper/silver wound, howver, but wound in bronze or nickel. The gauges are right though. Ian Cruickshank seems to have high praise for them.
I'm interested in finding some strings that sound like the Argentines but which break less. Any other recommendations for strings that sound like the Argentines do, but are made with a bit higher QC? I've tried Gallis, and I'll try some more. How about GHS? Dell'Arte? Gitane? Pearse? Manouche-Tone/Guadalupe? Lenzner?
thanks in advance...
