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!"

    I think the John Pearse Mando and Guitar Strings are the best strings on the market for tone, quality, and price. They seem to last longer than most of the other phosphor bronze and bronze strings but they are cheaper than the coated strings like Elixer. I also seem to have less breaks than some of the cheaper strings out there.

    I traditionally have used JP PB Mediums on a parlor guitar I have for slide. I wanted to try this on a dreadnought that I have and I love them. Sweet PB tone with typical JP quality. I don't have a blue grass setup on my acoustics but I love the rich sound of these strings, especially on the bottom end (great for Drop D and DADGAD tunings). Buying them from made it that much better!

    For two years now I've been putting John Pearse strings on all my custom guitars with excellent results. My clients say they won't use anything else after hearing first hand what they sound like.

    I have a newer Martin with hybrid bracing, mortise and tenon neck joint, and sapele back and sides. These strings are the best sounding, longest lasting I have found for this guitar. Great price and very fast delivery too!
