Workhorse strings!
December 3, 2020
I use these strings on my ‘63 Gibson 45/ Hummingbird cross. They are great! Excellent performers in humid condition and hold their tone the longest of the different types of strings I have used over the years. Price is a big factor as I change strings often.
  • Great tone lasting sound affordable price

Awesome on my Epiphone

I had read about these strings and thought I should try them on my Martin guitars. They haven't made it to the Martins yet but I put a set on my beautiful, easy playing and inexpensive Epiphone DR-100 VS. Wow! These John Pearce strings really gave it a pop! A nice sound. I still grab all my guitars to play, but I grab this one more these days.

My only strings

For guitar, I've used Pearce strings for decades. They're the best. Phosphor Bronze Lights for my mahogany guitar, and 80/20 Medium or Bluegrass for the rosewood flat-tops, as well as the archtops. You don't need anything else.
I only remove one star because they have not adopted environmental packaging, and I've had to trash rusted sets of unused strings. But they were DEFINITELY over a year old, so not really their fault, more of my fault.

These are the best strings - period

After finding out about these strings from my guitar instructor (Tom Yoder) over 10 years ago, I was absolutely blown away with the sustain. They have a lot of "guts" yet are easy enough to bend. I have tried others before and since, but NONE compare. You will not regret using John Pearse strings!

Different Yes, Great Yes!!!

I bought some Mediums 13-56 to try out. I usually string up guitars with Martin SP Phosphor Bronze. These are different. They are lower tension and have an awesome spank to them. Not as bright as the Martins but very smooth. Feels like there are more winds per inch so there is less squeak and a smoother feel. I can see how they would kick butt for finger style.

I am a professional player and have played many, many different stings, from coated to Flat wound to Round core to red. I have found nothing better than JP strings. I get the tone I want and I am happy with the consistency I get every time I put them on my custom Bryson 000
I recommend these strings to every guitar player I come in contact with.

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!"
