    Ok so I ordered a set of strings on the 24th of may. Its April 3rd now and I still have no strings! I've got the receipt and my $45 is gone but I still have no shipping invoice and no strings. Can anyone please help me out. I've emailed them everyday since I ordered them and still have nothing....

    May? You mean March?

    A couple of recent posts in the Circle K thread have been about delays. I think there is also a blurb on their website about the shipping info email not going out or somesuch and they were working on it.

    Could be worse, I ordered some Dean Markley's from juststrings.com and they mailed me all but one of my strings, telling me the other one is back-ordered and I should "get it soon". It's been a month now.

    That's why I only use Bass Strings Online. Well that, and the inflated shipping at juststrings.

    Send them an email with your order # and let them know you haven't received any shipping/tracking information.

    They recently made an announcement that they thought they had the corrections made, but asked that any issues be emailed to them.

    Which string specifically?

    There are a lot of Dean Markley SKU's that have been discontinued...

    The problem with ordering from Bassstringsonline is that they're not Circle Ks...

    I just ordered a set yesterday, we'll see how long it takes to get them. They're usually pretty quick.

    Don't worry garrettdamit, if they have your gauges in stock they ship within 36 hours, any other delay is due to the postal system. Peoples experiences are a shipping time of a couple of days up to 3 weeks. Also until recently they did not send out shipping confirmations.

    Good news is that string has not been discontinued as far as I know.

    Super Rounds and some of the Nickel Steel singles have been.

    That string should be readily available.

    In their defense, Dean Markley can take a while to ship, but not three weeks.

    BassStringsOnline is the only place I buy strings period and I personally hope they never stock Circle K strings sounds like a mess of an operation.

    Their problems are with service, not product. So if BassStringsOnline stocked them, I reckon everyone would win.

    I just ordered from CKS today so I'll see how it goes.

    I have never purchased Circle K strings, but I do get their facebook feed. They recently revamped their email system so that they might be able to actually read/respond to most of their emails. They have also made some other changes, but it sounds like its one of those situations where things get a little worse before they get better.

    All total, it sounds like they are trying. Just not adapting quite as quickly as they probably should. Maybe they weren't looking that far ahead or something. Whatever the case, I would expect things to get better and stay good.

    Well, I would have ordered from bassstringsonline but you guys don't offer SR 2000's as singles. So I ordered from juststrings and am getting burned. :bawl:

    I'm not worried about it, Circle K strings are phenomenal and worth waiting for. If I needed strings TODAY for a show I'd go buy a set of something from GC and throw them away when the Circle Ks showed up. I wouldn't even feel slighted. If they keep making strings they way they're making them, I'll keep buying them. Between the quality of the strings, the tone, and the availability of every gauge I could ever need, it's worth the wait.

    The problem would be Bass Strings could never keep them in stock waiting for Circle K to deliver product it's a small three man operation that didn't plan for any kind of growth and I suspect will go the way of the dinosaurs in a few years if things continue like they are. I'll stick with my labella's and BassStringsOnline I order strings they deliver right away hassle free.
