A relief for the fingers

08.04.2014
My father had these on one of his vintage guitars so I decided to test them on my new steel string. Well what a relif for the fingers. Now I can play for hours withough fingers aching of pain. Put them on my 6-string banjo to. Its not the perfect sound, but still so close its worth it for getting rid of the pain in my knuckle.

Fingerstyle on concert guitar

Horst674, 15.08.2012
After many experiments with strings I finally found my combination, whereby I only a small bit of bass volume is missing.

The John Pearse fingerstyle strings have a fantastically brilliant and precise sound and are easy to grip. After being pulled up, they sound very rich in overtones, but after a few days the sound stabilizes to a clear, clean sound. The strings keep the tuning very well. If the guitar is not exposed to large temperature fluctuations, the tuning often lasts a whole week and the deviation is low, even with frequent playing.

One theme is the durability: while the three high strings hold extremely long and a change is only determined by decreasing sound characteristics, the three deep strings are extremely sensitive. Already after a few days, the wounding breaks and dissolves. The strings begin to rattle. The D-string as the most popular is the first to be affected. Once I was replaced with Thomann the strings from Kullanz, afterwards no more.

So I combine the three high strings of the John Pearse set with the three low strings of the Thomastik Plectrum AC110. From the volume they fit well together. All the above as regards playability and tuning also applies here. At the durability there is nothing to complain about. The bass is clean and slim without metallic overtones, not for Bassfetischisten, but good for fast Melodiespiel, changing bass etc., whereby the playing with thumb pick is recommended. The bass then sounds slightly wooden and makes folk pieces sound very interesting.

For Country & Western à la John Denver or Johnny Cash is missing in this combination, as I said, a small bass volume. Since all strings have a steel core, reinforcement is also possible via inductive pickups - and on a normal concert guitar. As far as string tension is concerned, I can not see any damage to my guitar after two years of use of this combination. Unfortunately, the fun is quite expensive, because you buy two expensive sets and half the investment can only give away, as a complete string set, but which does not deliver nearly as good result.
