Ever since we started making John Pearse® Strings we have looked for a good way to offer them as singles. The trouble is that music strings are very susceptible to atmospheric corrosion if they are improperly stored – and strings not shipped in a protective plastic envelope are in even greater danger. Some manufacturers are cutting back on their packaging costs by shipping strings straight lengths or dispensing completely with paper insert envelopes for sets (both expose the strings to condensation!). We finally decided to ship our single strings in special acid free paper envelopes which not only absorbs any transient moisture but also inhibit any corrosion. It costs a bit more, but they’re worth it!

We are constantly adding to the inventory of single strings so that we are more able to accommodate the needs of players of all sorts of instruments. We do our best to keep this up-to-date, but if you have any questions or pressing needs, please don’t hesitate to contact us to see what is in the works!
