a place to buy some flatwounds

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by Lakini's Juice, Mar 31, 2001.

  1. the music stores i have a chance to go to every once in a while do not have any flatwounds for a 5-string, and the 2 internet sites i go to dont have any (americanmusical.com does not have them, and musiciansfriend.com has a wait for like 2-4 weeks) so does anyone else know a website where i could get a piar? and what are some good brands. good brands not great brands i dont want to pay a hole lot. by the way, i am still using the Carvin (yes carvin) strings that came with my bass. so the quicker i can get them the better. thanks.

    try this web site.


    as far as good strings, that is just a matter of taste. i have some Ernie Ball flats on my 5 string right now and i like them pretty well.

    Ditto what blong1 said, Just Strings . I should buy stock in those guys :p.

    You can rush order a set - "next day" - but that's like another
    $18 or so. Regular shippin's about a week (IF the set's in
    stock). GHS Precision Flats are good (and cheap) too.
    You could click on "search" (top o' the page) and enter
    "best flats" or somethin' like that. Many, many discussions
    on this topic :D .

    If you want flats.You want TI's.They're great.Steve(dude)Barr sells them for less and carries Rotos and i think Lalkand's as well.-vintage bass trading co.Good luck!
