John Pearse ''Silks''
I tried some of these strings out as I prefer a more comfortable string to do finger work with. Overall I would say that they are OK. In my opinion the Martin FX Silk and Phos/Bronze is on balance a superior string; better sustain, brightness and suprising "Buzz Free". There are numerous "Low Tension" sets on offer now, Thomastik, Newtone and so on. They all have a plus and a minus in some area. Some are just plain very expensive!! Having read the "Hype" about the "Silks" I gave them a try, but I would rate them behind the Martins, Newtones and Thomasticks.

I am using the Light .011 and like them very much. I have not strung the Light/Mediums. The Light's I would give a 4-star... Maybe a 5 after I assess the durability.

I've played many brands of strings over the years but yours [John Pearse] is hands down the best. Simon Kirke.

John Pearse Bronze & Silk
I bought these strings for a 1910 Washburn parlor guitar, hoping they would be less of a strain on the neck. I was pleasantly surprised with the brighter bronze sound, unlike regular silk & steel strings. They seem to last a fairly long time, too. I only use them on this guitar.

John Pearse Bronze and Silk
I love them. Great feel great tone. Seriously improves the tone of what I thought was an almost perfect guitar (Morgan 00M). I play mostly nylon (Taylor NS32ce) and the silk and bronze lean well in that direction. I find the sound fuller and more powerful than the usual John Pearse lights that I use (600L) I will stay with these for this guitar.

Hybrid Strings...
I call these Hybrid strings because they are definitely different than any other strings I have ever had... I like the softer feel (I can play longer)... I did have to turn up my DI box into the PA on the bass side since I compete with a guy on a Yamaha Piano in our duo... they do get a tad sloppy with heavy strumming but overall I like them and, depending on the length of life, I will probably stick with them... the tone is good once I tweaked the DI box... I don't know if I would use them just acoustically around the campfire...

These are a really nice change from regular phosphor/bronze or 80/20s. They're a bit softer in feel and volume but not floppy or dull on my Recording King ROS 626 solid mahogany/spruce 12 slothead. Very 'round' sounding, almost like a classical and they don't sound at all brassy or harsh. I like 'em and want to try them on my Martin 00-21.

The New John Pearse® #510L & #610LM SILKS

The exciting new SILKS sets mark a departure from orthodox acoustic string design. Formulated for the electric guitarist who doubles on acoustic, this set features a never before possible "playing ease" tension married with the warmth and projection for which our acoustic strings are famous. Our triple annealed mild steel is pulled through a draw plate to make an extra skinny core. Onto this is wound a silk multifilament which cushions a phospor bronze winding. This is NOT a silk and steel set. The natural edginess of the phosphor bronze winding is tempered by the silk cushion to produce a tone that studio players everywhere are likening to our 80/20 bronze sets after they have been played in. Steve Sheehan, lead guitarist with the Judds, asked us to make this set. Guitarists all over America are thanking him!
