I like these strings
August 28, 2021
I was looking for 80/20 Bronze strings that would replace my new old stock of now discontinued Martin 80/20 SP Light/Mediums that has just about run out. These seem to be a great replacement!

My favorite strings for acoustic!

I've been using John Pearse strings for probably 17 years or so. Excellent tone, solid feel but still bend well and hold sustain. I've had many people try to convert me to a different string - but never matches up for me. John Pearse acoustic all the way.

Wonderful strings!

Every once in awhile I order several sets of strings and cycle through them, just to make sure I'm hip to the sound I'm after. Two sets of strings have been the standouts for awhile. For recording, playing at home, and shorter shows, these 310NM strings can't be beat IMO. For long shows where you need extended consistent tone, I use D'Addario EXP11s. The JP's are by far the best sounding strings I grab though. :D

perfectly balanced string

These strings have perfectly even tension as Pearse claims. Perfect for fingerstyle.
Excellent for standard tuning; they still work for drop tunings. Although they do tend to be more on the light side rather than mediums. 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!"
