Now! The strings that established John’s international reputation back in the 70’s–the THOMASTIK- JOHN PEARSE® SET. A revolutionary departure from a “traditional” classical string construction, every string is wound, even the first! Made like a fine violin string, the trebles are a braided metal rope core wound on with a flat nylon monofilament, while the basses are a perlon floss core wound on with a silverplated bell bronze wire. For many years, the preferred strings of the top Brazilian guitarists, the THOMASTIK- JOHN PEARSE® set gives unbelievable clarity, projection and volume–almost like a steel string–with no more tension on the guitar than a traditionally made firm tension CLASSICAL set. TOTALLY UNIQUE!
