Product Reviews for John Pearse® Acoustic Six String Guitar 80/20 Bronze Bluegrass, .012 - .056, 250LM

John Pearse® Acoustic Six String Guitar 80/20 Bronze Bluegrass, .012 - .056, 250LM5eTravlzJune 20, 2010These are the best stings I've ever used. I love the rich tone from the heavier string. I've put these on Alvarez, Martins, Fenders, and custom guitars. Every guitar sounds amazing. The heavier gauge may be a bit hard for some players to use at first, but are well worth the tone if you got the muscle. Note this gauge is not for beginners. I still recommend John Pearse strings but if your starting off, get a light or custom light set. These have about 180 lbs of string tension in standard and are very difficult for those who's hands and arms aren't trained yet. Buy these and enjoy the true sound of your guitar!!

John PearseÒ Strings

"English studio musician John Pearse first began researching into music string manufacture in the mid-sixties. The first person, ever, to teach guitar on television - his BBC lessons have been seen in six countries while his PBS series, STRINGALONG, was shown in most US television markets whilst becoming perhaps the best selling video guitar course both nationally and internationally. He is the author of some forty books on such diverse subjects as instrument building and technique- to cooking and the traditional art of fly fishing! In 1965 John 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. John also designed string lines for Bourne Guitars and Jay Associates, makers of the Jester guitar line.

In 1978 he came to the United States to develop a unique line of accessories for the C.F.Martin Company. It was here that he again met dulcimist Mary Faith Rhoads. After eighteen months, he decided to leave Martin, and, with Mary Faith, started Breezy Ridge Instruments to produce the Breezy Ridge Hammer Dulcimer. His revolutionary design proved itself to be the best sounding Hammer Dulcimer ever made. 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 and pressure from both the public and beleaguered dealers had persuaded John and Mary Faith to make their line available to stores and things have just kept growing since then!"
