better than Elixir for tone
October 2, 2019
I bought these for my Taylor 314ce.
The tone of the elixir strings was somewhat muted compared with what I felt it should be.
So I gave these a try along with the New Mediums. Both are great.
I can tell the tone of uncoated string is a difference to my ear and preference as a tone hound.
The ML are a bit easier to play for long sessions and for barre chords.
These will last for about a month depending on how much you play and exposure to environment.
With the 0.052 it lacks a tiny bit of low end but if that is an issue one can go to the NMs.
This is a perfect fit with the Taylor while keeping that 0.013 high E string and the brightness it creates.

Finally I like this better than the shedding of coating that results with elixirs.
I'm happier with these and willing to change strings monthly or so.
tone playability bright warmth Obviously change more often than elixirs. Less low end? Go to the NMs.

I ended up liking these a fair amount the more I played them -- they sound better on my Taylor DN3 with less intense picking and strumming -- maybe just a tad muddy and not quite as well balanced as some other strings on this guitar, and the deep E buzzed in this setup (tho other strings this gauge haven't). Still, over the week I liked them more as I played them -- pretty nice overall, with a warm sound.

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!"
