    Behind you!
    I tried to do a search on "Arkay", but nothing.

    I ask because Arkay seem like good strings for a great price ($16 on bassguitarstrings.us) and, well, a high quality economical strings is never a bad thing, no?

    http://www.arkaystrings.com/

    So has anyone used Arkay strings? How is the feel (coarse/smooth) to you? How is the tension to you (taut/loose)? Do they have a decent life span? (I tend to change my strings twice a year, so I like a really warm, mellow sound.)

    Thanks.

    What about Sfarzo strings? http://www.sfarzo.us

    Seems like a good deal ($14 on juststrings.)

    Again, nothing from a search.

    I'd recommend shooting an email to Tom Appel (owner of BGS.us) for some advice. He's never steered me wrong, and he's kept getting my business because of it.
