TI dropped the idea for some time but when they eventually decided to go into production they named them after John Pearse as a tribute.
Thanks Bruce.

I'm glad to see you back here Bruce. You had all of us worried.

Frank, their website indicates the 1st string is a steel core, but just a rope core for the other two trebles.

I'm not really into these strings as they are now, maybe the trebles will mellow a bit over time.

I think I prefer nylon trebles, but I'm going to try medium tension next time around.
