    Does anyone know where (preferably over the internet) that I can buy D'addario strings in bulk to say money, or anywhere I can get them for cheap?

    Thanks

    If you want XL's for cheap, Bob at BP sales has 'em for $14/set. Seems cheap to me. He isn't always the fastest shipper in the world (one-man operation), but he has a good selection, answers e-mails, and seems honest and forthright.

    Just bought 3 sets of Hartkes (lights) for 19.99 and the guy at the store reckons that they are D'Addarios.

    They do have the different colored ball ends.

    Maybe someone can clarify?

    I don't need no stinkin' colors. I can tell you how it should be tuned by the feel :p

    Keep in mind that DR Lo-Riders also have different colored ball ends, so it's not as though D'Addario has the "colored ball end" market monopoly ;)
