Michael Messer Strings
Michael Messer National Guitar Strings® established in 1992
The ultimate strings for all National® and National-style resonator guitars
National® is a registered trademark of NATIONAL RESO-PHONIC GUITARS INC. OF THE USA.
Michael Messer National Guitar Strings® are handmade from the finest materials for extra volume, sustain and purity of tone.
These strings are designed to have perfect tension on National® and other 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 National 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 National Guitar Strings® are available in phosphor bronze or nickel and come in three standard gauges:
Sets of custom gauges are available by order
Michael Messer National Guitar Strings® are handmade in England by Newtone Strings®
