Win 5 sets of Jon Gomm™ Signature Guitar Strings! 

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 info@newtonestrings.com - they are handmade to order, so they might take a few weeks to arrive. 

To win 5 sets of Jon Gomm Signature Newtone Strings, just email your name and phone number to strings@jongomm.com  

If you don't want to be added to my emailing list please write "unsubscribe" as the subject. I only send out 3 or 4 emails per year on average. Lazy, huh?
Competition closes Feb 22nd 2014. I promise your personal details will not be shared with ANYONE ever.

    Hi Jon. I've met you a few times following shows and want you to know you are a real inspiration, both because of your musical passion and skill but because of how you go about being a working musician in today's industry. It's really refreshing and powerful to know you can still be a skilled musician and successful and not be the result of the x-factor generation. And I'd love some strings! peace and respect, Jim.

    Hi Jon, love your new album! I saw you at Port St Mary Town hall last weekend. I was blown away by everything you did. Just downloaded the tab for telepathy, wish me luck! :)

    Jon - I ran across your amazing rendition of "Ain't Nobody" on YouTube a few weeks ago, and I cannot get enough of it, or any of your music for that matter. And on this, the 50th anniversary of the crossing of the pond by that fabulous foursome from Liverpool, let me vouchsafe that my country would be a notch or two better if you would plan a tour of these United States. What does it take to make that happen?
