The New John Pearse® #510L & #610LM SILKS

The exciting new SILKS sets mark a departure from orthodox acoustic string design. Formulated for the electric guitarist who doubles on acoustic, this set features a never before possible "playing ease" tension married with the warmth and projection for which our acoustic strings are famous. Our triple annealed mild steel is pulled through a draw plate to make an extra skinny core. Onto this is wound a silk multifilament which cushions a phospor bronze winding. This is NOT a silk and steel set. The natural edginess of the phosphor bronze winding is tempered by the silk cushion to produce a tone that studio players everywhere are likening to our 80/20 bronze sets after they have been played in. Steve Sheehan, lead guitarist with the Judds, asked us to make this set. Guitarists all over America are thanking him!

John Pearse® Nuages® Strings A message from JP - "We could try to tell you why these are one of the most exciting additions to our string line...but then, whatever we could say, you would expect it because it is coming from us. So, I decided to make it easy on all of us!
While attending the "Django Festival" at Samois, France, last June, I was so fortunate as to meet a wonderful musician and gentle person by the name of Robin Nolan. His trio--they reside in Holland--was performing at Samois!! Don't listen to me...listen to them. Please check out their...website..."
