    Hey there fellow TBers.

    Can you reccomend me of some good 6 string Flatwound strings,that are cheap but got the quality?
    Because I really CAN'T pay $60-$100 on a set of strings.

    Thanks guys! ;)
     
  2. Order them from Carvin. They're actually Labellas, and they're quite good.

    Strings on an acoustic guitar are generally made of varying blends of phosphor bronze. Strings on a bass are more like their electric guitar counterparts and made of various blends of nickel and steel.
