John Pearse® Strings
"In 1965 John Pearse began his collaboration with British Music Strings, a London string maker, to develop a guitar string with both a longer life and a more accurate vibrating and nodal pattern. His designs were so successful that, over the years, both British Music Strings and Thomastik marketed strings under his name. In 1978 he came to the United States... Next came a line of music strings designed especially for the professional musician. Within months, word of these exciting strings had spread across the country."
This fine tradition of string craftsmanship began with British musician John Pearse researching instrument strings in the 1960s. His mission was to design a string that was longer lasting with a more accurate, high-quality sound. Over 50 years later, John Pearse strings are highly respected and used by professional musicians around the world.
