I'm ready with new strings in hand!
October 9, 2022
I already have a set of these on my Weissenborn and love them. These strings are for backup or next time I change them. Want you to know I also received a guitar cleaning cloth in my package and I wondered, "What am I going to do with that?" but I now use it everyday! Thank you!

For Dobro, open D tuning - Great set of strings

I use these strings on my resophonic guitar (Beard) to play in open D tuning.
The string package indicates NEW D.
Sounds better than the strings on my Weissenborn guitars.

These really woke up my GoldTone SM
December 30, 2020
I was unhappy with the specific 'hawaiian' strings I had been using on a Goldtone SM Weissenborn. The trebles seemed dull while the bass and mids had such punch -- seemed like the trebles should have been more pronounced. The J. Pearse "Open D" set are overall brighter with more overtones and really deep bass.
Bright, shimmering trebles and evenly balanced. .060 E might be too much bass for this guitar. Very deep but lost some 'tightness'. May need to put in more time with this set.

Not exactly the intended usage, but

I string my 1977 LoPrinzi with these, tuned down C#-C#, and they work great in that application. I've been playing the same songs (in some cases) in the same way since 1965, and now that my voice has dropped, it's way too late for me to start learning to play them transposed, and not going to be capoing up to the 9th fret for every song, This way I can play the songs in the familiar grips. I've tried this on a few other guitars and they didn't sound too great, but on this one it's magic.
Perfect for my application Can't find them at the local music store, so plan ahead!

Weissenborn Open D Strings

I'm new to the Weissenborn lap steel thing but I'm hooked on my Gold Tone SM with the JP strings. I had a nice Fishman pup installed and it kicks ass like you would'nt believe. They stay in tune and sound strong and bluesy. I have no reason to try any other string. You can't go wrong with JP Strings!

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!"
