Tried these for the first time and was very pleased. After the first tryout, switched over on two other guitars. Migrating from Martin SP phosphor bronze mediums to these. Might be the flavor of the day for a while but we'll see how they do long term. I suggest you give them a shot.

Best non-nickle strings I've ever used. They last and they have dimension.

I've tried them all but John Pearse strings sound the best on my 70 Martin D35

John Pearse Phosphor Bronze New Mediums

I tried these John Pearse PB New Mediums on my D-16RGT and found them to be superb strings. Just a bit dark, but lush sounding with very good bass and thick trebles. They are extra playable for .13s because of the mixed gauges. They do take a couple of days to break in, sounding a bit too metallic at first, but after they settle in they sound very rich with excellent sustain. I also have used the standard Mediums and slightly prefer them on this rosewood dreadnought for the extra power when needed.

Good sound for my 1938 Gibson. Great price and speedy delivery too.

A nice sound - smooth and sweet. Doesn't have the attack and sustain of the Martin medium phosphor bronze strings that I usually buy. I'm going back to the Martins....

The worst strings ever

These John Pearse strings were dull, right out of the box. They have no tone. They stretch. Dead as doornails. Never again. I was a fool to have tried them. Couldn't wait to cut them off and throw them away.

These sound sweet and wonderful on my Martin D-41, and hold up well under my "heavy" fingerpickin' touch. With care, there is not too much string squeak. I will happily string these up again.

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!"
