John Pearse 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings

John Pearse 80/20 bronze strings bring a welcome change from our bestselling phosphor bronze JPs. They tend to be brighter and crisper, whereas the phosphor bronze tend to be meatier.  

My favorite gauge, by the way, is the New Medium. Stringmakers have been producing Custom Light and Slightly Light strings for years, since folks often like a string a bit lighter than true Lights, but not quite as loose and slinky as Extra Lights. Well, John Pearse's New Medium gauge fills that same gap on the heavier side of things. New Mediums are just a bit heavier than Lights, but not quite as heavy as true Mediums. It's worth tossing in a set with your next JP order—if you're like me, you may find yourself restringing all your guitars with New Mediums.

Pure, crisp sound

I love these Pearse 80/20 strings on a little Martin of mine that’s slightly dark sounding (CEO-7). They add a lot of life to the guitar and wear well. I’m beginning to prefer them to phosphor bronze strings overall. Shoreline sells them for a great price, and their service is unbeatable.

These are by far the best strings for my 86 Martin hd-28 been using them for years. Shoreline Music price and service are equally unmatched, you now have a loyal customer!!!

Great strings

We've all heard that "tone is in the fingers". Well since I don't have those types of fingers I rely on these strings instead and I'm very happy with my tone :) John, thank you for suggesting these string!
