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!

strange gauges for my weiss
I've played weiss D tuning for many years. It's hard to find a good set for this tuning, so I've used custom set. When I tried out this J.Pearse set, 3. and 4. sring were too heavy, even broked 4. string when I was tuning it. When I checked out measures what others (Sally Van Meter, Jerry Douglas... when playing Weiss tuned D) are using, their 3. and 4. string are also lighter! What more can I say... nice cover, useless set:(

Good strings. A little lacking in volume, but very good.

JP weissenborn strings
Excellent strings !

IMHO they have a bit more "meat" in them than the d'Addarios EXP42 that I also use.

John Pearse Weissenborn Strings (D tuning)
I have a vintage Weissenborn as well as one made by Bear Creek guitars. I have tried many different types of strings on my lap tops over the last ten years or so, and these are--hands down!--the very best I've used; a great set of strings, well balanced, long lasting, and delivering great tone. Thank you!!

It is felt that the fundamental pitch is very large & deep sound. Moreover, it lasts long.
Very good strings.

Clean, balanced sound
I've used these for a couple of months on an old Yamaha flat top acoustic guitar the I converted to play lap slide style. These are the first strings I've tried (and I've tried several) that have good sound through out the range, and even tension on all strings. They just feel good. My only complaint is that there is a fair amount of bar noise on the 4th and 6th strings. I'm not surprised about the 6th because of the large diameter, but noise on the 4th was unexpected. Regardless, I'm sticking with these strings because they outperform the D'Addarios, Martins, and other strings I've tried.

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!"
