John Pearse® Acoustic Guitar Six String Silvered Steel Nuage/Silver Plated Copper Wound, Silk Wrapped Light/Medium, .011 - .046, 'Guitare Manouche' , 2810LM5CabinMay 10, 2011I love these strings. I stumbled on using Gypsy Jazz Strings on a standard acoustic/electric (rosewood/cedar) strictly by accident, but what a pleasant surprise. The strings must have a little less tension than bronze and the silver might be a bit softer, because they make it a lot easier to play fingerstyle. There's a little loss of brightness and sustain, but that can actually help de-mud a lot of fingerstyle pieces, and brightness and sustain weren't big issues with a cedar-top anyway. They're also surprisingly pleasant to strum, if you hit them very softly with a light pick. It creates a light percussive sound with a little bit of tone, which I've come to call the Soft Silver Sound. No idea of how well they age or last yet, but I think I'm onto something ! (P.S. -- I love that microfiber cloth you put in with the first shipment.)
