John Pearse says: I've been fortunate in that I'm able to earn my living doing what I like best, making music; not just as a player but designing and making instruments, strings and accessories too. In many ways I'm a perfectionist, especially about my strings. They must be the very best strings available anywhere; with clear singing highs, rich sonorous lows and able to withstand constant changes of climate in my continent-hopping existence. Very few strings measure up. These do.
