    I just bought 10 sets....expecting to pay $20.......they discounted again during checkout and I got 10 sets for $6.60 plus free shipping.

    I don't even care if I like them!

    Whoa, great tip. Can't beat a 7.92 for a dozen sets for my son!!

    Crazy. Hope they are not made of lead or something.

    If you buy them in multiples of 3, it's $2per three sets.

    In other words: 3 sets= $2, 6 sets= $4, 9 sets = $6, etc etc.

    I don't play lights, but I bought 9 sets anyway. For $6, why the hell not? I figure if I ever sell one of my basses I'll put a fresh set of lights on it and keep the good strings. I can give them to friends. I can hang pictures with them, at $.66 a set.

    I also bought some mediums, just to keep in my cases as backups.

    .10 gauge guitar strings are $10/10 sets too, so I bought some of those as well.

  15. Hope ya like them. I got some basically to give away to people that may need a set. I can't imagine that they are that great and I hate to play crappy strings.

    Five sets of strings for the price of a cappuccino. Not bad.

    I am going to restring all my basses that pretty much sit in their cases! Then they can be put away with nice new strings! At $1.50 per set, I can keep my basses with new strings without a worry.
     
  20. Wow! I just got 20 sets for $13.20 with 2 day shipping!!
