custom string sets?

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by negative theory, Jan 20, 2003.


  1. Hey, does anybody know of a good place to get custom sets of strings? I tune my 4 string to "C" and I like a good tight string response. I bought a custom set from Guitar Center, but they gave me a hard time about the pricing. I'm looking for a 4 string set that is 60 80 100 125, oor really close to that. Thanks!!

    every DR dealer is supposed to be able to get you custom string sets of dr's.

    also, juststrings.com has pretty inexpensive single strings, so you could 'build' a set through them.

    I never buy a "stock" 5 string set. I always buy the standard .45-.105 or .40-.100 and get the thickest B that the string maker has to offer. I do my shopping at juststrings.com aswell.
     
  4. Cool, cool, I'll have to check out those options. Thanks!!!
