Always buy JP but never get a deal
January 19, 2022
You never send me deals on JP strings; always other brands if any deals at all. Until the day after my last order you sent deal on JP strings. Been loyal customer for many, many years. Give me a break sometime.

overall rating reflects the lack of deals not the performance of the strings

I’m a bass player who also uses guitars in my home studio and for practice / arranging / transcribing….have a pretty soft touch and a large Breedlove Deadnought that tends to taut. So light strings help. These are really nice, well balanced and have that bronze force with some sparkle in the highs. Easy to recommend.

I like these strings as well as any I play, the Extra Light are great for me. I strum hard, they don't break and stay crisp and bright long enough for my playing style. I change strings about once per week.

John Pearse makes the best strings period! They last longer, don't break, have better tone and volume than anything else on the market. I wish they made a flat wound jazz string as I would like to try them

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!"
