    Looking for a place to buy these in bulk. Yep, JustStrings sells them but they're not tapered.

    Need tapered, .128 ~ .130 (prefer .130) low B strings (nickel or stailess, no preference)

    Anyone know where I can get some of these?

    (Yeah, I did a search.. All results were from those either those looking to buy bulk string *sets* or pointed back to the aforementioned JustStrings.com dead-end)

    Thank you for your support...

    What are you talkin' about? I get all my tapered .130 Prosteel singles from JustStrings.

    Told me they didn't sell them in bulk... Had to buy singles...

    Rouge (eww) sells them in 3 packs, but I'd doubt you'd want Rouge strings.

    Oh. Maybe "volume discount" would be the key to a good deal.

    I don't blame you. I wouldn't touch 'em with a 10 ft. pole. Stick to my DRs I will.

    How's that different from "bulk" buying???

    Nothing mentioned on the website about "volume discounts" for items not listed in their "Bulk Strings" section either...

    Agreed! I've asked juststrings about doing bulk order discounts on a number of different strings, both single strings and packs, and the response was that unfortunately they don't do it, at least not at a discount.
