I had a set of J.P. strings that were over 20 years old, and they still sounded as good as most new ones, they didn't have the sustain, but what do you expect after that long!
just as advertised. none

John Pearce strings
August 1, 2020
I am new to serious slide playing having played a little in standard tuning only. I now have an acoustic tuned to open E, a homemade resonator tuned to open D and three electrics tuned to standard, open E and open A. I know capo's will keep down the number of guitars but I'm still experimenting. Now I also have an old National lap steel tuned to open D so I have several different gauges of strings I am working with. Having said that I have tried different brands and the last sets I bought were from here and they are all John Pearce now. They defiantly make a difference in sound quality and I am satisfied with the end result when I play. I did a lot of research and John Pearce strings were highly recommended by a lot of slide players so I knew I couldn't go wrong by trying them. I am now a John Pearce fan!!!

Best Dobro Strings Ever

I have been playing the Dobro for eight years now and tried lots of different strings. These are by far the best sounding I have ever used.

The best reso strings available
April 1, 2020
These are my favorite strings, after playing everything. They easily beat the d'addario nickel bronze sets, being only nickel wound. Sure, they might not sound as deep and rich as phosphor bronze, but they will last a month without losing their tone, even under heavy use. That's more than I can say about any other set I've tried.

I use these on both my Beard Josh Swift Signature and my Beard Deco Phonic 57.

Square Neck Dobro Strings

Best strings I've tried,and I tried most brands, for square neck dobro. I use a Lace pickup on one dobro and with these strings it sounds ALMOST like not being electrified.

John Pearse® Resophonic Guitar G Tuning

Fantastic strings. Wouldn't use anything else for my dobros and lapsteels. Very balanced response on both transducer and magnetic pickups. Hold up very well under fingerpick and bar abuse. Great tone too.

The Best!
June 3, 2011
This particular set is perfectly balanced in guage and tension. I was a little hesitant at first since I thought the lower strings might be too thick, but that was NOT the case. These string provide very even tension and wear very well across several different resonators used for slide and steel. Very consistent like all JP products.

I've tried many different brands and kinds of strings for my 1994 National Delphi and the John Pearse Resophonic Guitar Nickel G Tuning .016-.059 are the best! Much better than bronze wound strings. I'm sticking with these for now on!

These John Pearse Resophonic Guitar strings (Nickel G Tuning) have a rich, clear sound.

Ordering was easy and shipment came quickly, even though it was the Christmas season. Will order again.

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!"
