John Pearse® Resophonic Guitar Baritone Phosphor Bronze Open E Tuning, .017 - .076, 32505BillDecember 16, 2010Hi, I'm a big fan of JP strings but I have asked in the past for a set suitable for 30" baritone weissenborn string in a "G" or "A" tuning. Newtone offers an excellent set (18 to 82 ) but the UK is a long ways and requires an order of 10 sets at a time. I'm experimenting with your open "E" tuning 17 to 76 and there close but some of the strings are a little floppy and not quite there, the one that fit sound excellent. Any chance you could come up with something more suitable or offer the newtone baritones in the future? Thanks for the strings and good service....................Bill

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!"
