    Whats the cheapest website I could buy 8-10 packs of DR 40-100?

    Also, is there anywhere you guys know of that sells individual DR strings? (D string)

    Yea, but is this really the lowest price on the web?

    Somebody really needs to make a pricewatch.com for guitars and what not.

    BP Strings has DR's for $20 for a four-string set. He (Bob) does LaBella quantity discounts, I don't know about DR, but he seems to answer e-mails OK. BP Strings

    www.juststrings.com has singles. It's pretty hard to find single strings on the web (or anywhere else).

    If my prices aren't the best, they're pretty close ;). But enough about me...

    Pricewatch and DealTime etc. have listings based on merchants who advertise with them, so take those ratings with a grain of salt.

    Maybe someone could help me here -- I searched the forums with no luck -- there was a site that I visited recently (not mentioned in this thread so far) that I thought I heard about in these forums; the guy had ridiculously low prices on strings. He wouldn't sell standard packaged sets, he sold individuals packaged as sets. I searched the net, but couldn't find the site.

    This place has the lowest prices on DR bass strings that I have seen. Also, you can order gauges and sets not listed. There are only two gauges of Hi-Beams listed but say you wanted DR Lo-Riders or Fatbeams.....all you have to do when you order is specify in the comments section the sets that you want. I prefer the Lo-Rider stainless sets MH-45. It takes a little longer to get sets other than Hi-Beams (which are the only ones that he stocks) but at that price it's worth it. He ships via priority mail and the shipping charges usually end up being less than what is posted on the site too. I've ordered from him (Patrick) 3 times now and have been pleased with his service.
