John Pearce resophonic strings
May 25, 2022
The tone produced from these strings is excellent. I am using these on my 1936 model 37 dobro.
Tone is excellent for my style of playing. After swapping out the wn059 to a wn049 I am very satisfied. May cost a little more doing for but the time I am getting is worth the cost not to mention the less stress on the neck. I will do the same in the future. Thanks I didn't like the heavy wn059 gage G string so I swapped it out with a John Pearse wn049 string

Great strings

I have been using John Pearse strings on my dobro for several years. The strings last longer than others and I find they stay in tune better than most strings. I will not use any other strings.
Great strings at a great price. none

Two 18 are fine on round neck!!
February 18, 2019
Being the stubborn child that I am I disregarded all the warning, plus my Chinese knock was so cheap I was braver with it if it might fail. After several months of playing and hanging on the wall too, it is totally fine, even on a round neck it shows now sign of pulling the neck forward, and it stays in tune as well. The two 18 are really great for tone and evenness of play. I tried a nut lifter, one of those instant steel guitar but it was too high and made the contact at the bride to light. While I was doing that the D string broke which I replaced with a Pierce bronze I had from another pack, much better sound than the stainless steel EAD string in the set, I am current gonna see if I can get the strings individually and use bronze on the low end. Just my two cents. thanx.

Not balanced
June 3, 2011
The unwound third string is an old and good idea, but having both top strings the same gauge simply puts too much tension on the set and causes them to be out of balance. A very good quality string like all JP string, but I would only use them on a true square neck resonator- NOT recommended at all for a Spanish (round) resonator neck

Theses are the best strings if you've got a single cone national. Windings never get loose and buzz like some others. The 3'rd string is wound!

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!"
