I started a thread a month or so back about buying strings in Canada and several TBers recommended Bass Strings Online. I ordered some D'Addario flats from them, got them in a reasonable amount of time at a comparable price, and they sounded fantastic! Only problem was, the B was faulty and broke after several attempts to keep it in tune. After contacting BSO, they have shipped me another B, and I'll be up and bass running again with my Godin as soon as it arrives! Very happy with my BSO experience!
