    In 2011 I started this thread about my experience with Bass Strings Online. It's the only place I've bought Bass Strings from since. Today via a live video Jason announced he's closing BSO.

    My experience with bassstringsonline.com

    He's got some inventory left he needs to move and I'm sure he'll make you a great deal as always.

    Welcome to Bass Strings Online - A Bass Store for Bass Players!

    If you had a good experience with BSO and Jason be sure to leave him some love. The bass world will miss his store.

    I wish him luck in whatever he continues to do. Buying from Jason was always a pleasurable experience and he always went out of his way to make sure of it. I’m sure he’s onto greener pastures, wherever they are. Good luck and thanks for all the great service throughout the years, Jason!

    Bummer. First RMC Audio and now Bass Strings Online. I got a great deal on a Genzler Magellan 800 off of him. Hate to see him go.

    Dang, that's awful. I got great service from Jason and haven't bought strings from anywhere else in a long time.

    I definitely wish him well in whatever he takes on next.

    I was literally looking on the site for the very first time, last night.

    Everyone always sings it's / his praises round here, so I was thinking I should check it out.

    I was immediately struck by how little inventory seemed to be in stock, from what appeared to be available - of course my preferred gauge wasn't in stock - but there were a couple of interesting things that were cheap enough, that I considered taking a punt.

    Only cause for hesitation was that there's not even a rough estimate, for how much international delivery will cost.

    Now it all makes sense, and this news is sad indeed.

    Bummer!

    Had good experiences with BSO. The other night I went to order some Labella flats and they weren't in stock. Ended up getting them someplace else and they were poorly packaged for shipping and my D and G string were kind of beat up looking. Sad to see that Jason is closing up shop.

    Thank you all for the support I really do appreciate it. I can not tell you how devastated I am having to do this.

    Perfect timing! Last night I set the website to only display certain items. I will be adding more items over the next few weeks to clear everything out.

    For international orders you must enter your COMPLETE ADDRESS on the checkout page. Once you have done so international shipping rates will appear.

    Free Shipping within the USA!
