    I received this as a Christmas gift from a well-intentioned friend, but I don’t play an upright. 3/4 scale. To my knowledge this is a new string, but the package’s exterior looks like it’s seen better days. $25 shipped CONUS via Paypal.

    Is it a full set or just the one string?

    I’m very embarrassed to say I didn’t pay a lick of attention...it appears to just be a D string. I will probably just shut down the listing instead of shipping a single string. Thanks!

    Did some cursory research and discovered that $25 is actually a great deal on what retails in the $45-ish range, so it’s back up.

    Thanks for the relocation.
     
  6. Actually, this string appears to be a low D, for string extension mechanism.
    It sells for around $90, but is a very specialized string.
    If someone is able to wind it up on a regular bass without string extension mechanism (it’s an extra-long string), it’s meant to play F#.

    Thank you very much for graciously volunteering this information. I’m taking this down until I decide exactly what I should do with it.

    Back up for $25. Since it was a gift and I can’t use it, someone may get a bargain.
