JPS_3200 Open F Light Baritone Strings
November 3, 2017
11 years ago I started using these light Baritone Strangs on my National El Trovador. I tried others but have always been driven back to these. Never tune above Open D but try to stay down around C & F...C being the tuning causing the most fear from my family & closest neighbors when I tune down to play these Strangs....my ALL TIME FAVORITE! Try to stay with Open C if you can...to prevent your neck from snapping loose & compromise your guitar's neck or crush your cone with these Barge Lines. Being as the El Trovador is a 4" deep, wood body, tone monster already...I was in sheer & utter disbelief of this Medieval tone that suddenly appeared came rolling out the newly Mojo infused cone & well. There's nothing like these Strangs this side of Hell & Marriage! They'll fulfill the missing tone you've been searching for since you became a Disciple of Tone. I hate giving up my secret Strangs but...maybe something good will come of it & they'll find the cure for cancer? These strings will go Plum Medieval on you! Be very careful when you first play them & keep your Doctors cell # taped to the refrigerator door just in case...You may never be seen or heard from ever again unless YOU decide to leave the deepest, darkest Swamps The Almighty Himself has ever created! Believe what I'm telling you Man! They're Wicked! Their Evil! & will go Midievile on you. Before you know it, they'll reach around and bite you in your ASS! ...Seriously Folks... Mojo opens a can of Whip Ass and sprinkles it over you & your guitar tie the dogs, put the kids to bed , bolt the doors, bar doors too, close & latch your windows, turn off the bottled gas & blow out ALL burning candles in the house before you proceed.... Just....never & I say Never... EVER say I didn't warn you! You're on your own now Kid!

I am using these strings on my National Reso Rocket N. Tuning floats from Open C to Open D/Dminor.

The bottom end of the Rocket is really tight with the 68 and I have to say the sustain rings forever. You can't go past these strings for fat delta blues and Skip James.

These are the best strings I have found for my National ResoRocket. Fat is an understatement! Best Tunings are Open C and Open D/D minor. Enjoy!

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!"
