John Pearse Electric Guitar Strings

"Music really does make the world a better place" it says on the John Pearse logo, and we heartily agree.

These electric guitar strings were developed by John Pearse, a British studio musician and the first person to teach guitar on television, back in 1962 on the BBC. Besides being the developer of some truly unique strings, he is also the author of 40 books on such diverse subjects as instrument building and technique, cooking, and even fly fishing.

In 1965 he began collaborating 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.
