You can’t go wrong with Pearse strings.

These Strings Set The Standard!
March 21, 2021
I've used the John Pearse 2500 set on all of my guitars for many years. Every once in a while I like to try something different but always come back to these. Other strings might have a little more bite but these are still nice and clear. The one thing that other brands can't match, however, is the consistent intonation. I never have to worry about a JP string going out of tune on it's own. My picky ear always seems to pick up the tiniest intonation flaws when I use other brands but when I replace the offending set with a set of these, I'm back in tune once again. As a guitar tech, I will always intonate a guitar using these strings because I know that the end result will be good and consistent. If you've had tuning issues, give these a try. They might help.
  • Very consistent intonation. Nice smooth feel. Easy bending.
  • Might not be as snappy as some other brands.

For me the best rope I've ever used. The tone is fantastic and I get a long warm sustain.
  • For me... any!!

Great with 3 saddle bridge

I love these strings on my 24" scale Duo Sonic with 3 saddle bridge. Sound just right with lower output pickups, with plenty of sustain and a warm yet present tone. Try them!

I have been playing semi-professionally for 32 years. These are the best strings I have ever used.

Great goods not known.

It is felt that the fundamental pitch is very large?& Deep sound. Moreover, it lasts long. Very good strings.

These are the best strings I've ever used, period. Smooth feel, tight bass, clear highs. They settle in quickly and stay in tune. As long as they're available, I can't see using anything else.

simply the best

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.

My favorite pure nickel string. These strings don't sound dull like other pure nickel strings. They are balanced, feel great, and stay in tune!

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!"
