    I have several sealed unused Bass strings for sale from a leftover lot purchase. (various brands and gauges - all standard long scale unless otherwise noted)

    You need bass strings so why pay up to $35 for a set when you can get
    some CHEAP!! These are unused, new stock strings, never opened.

    Here is a summary of the sets I have left:

    /* Below are sets for $5.99 each, quantity of sets remaining is listed
    on the left */

    1 Ernie Ball Group II Semi Firm Flatwound (.050, .070., 085, .105)
    2 Ernie Ball Round wound Light Sets (.040, .055,.075,.095)
    1 Vinci Electric Bass Steel Flatwound (.054 - .108)
    1 Hagstrom for 8 string bass (only includes the 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th

    I also have NUMEROUS STRING (packaged) SINGLES for Bass
    I have over 100 Ernie Ball singles (mix of flats and rounds from .040 to .100) and about another 100 of mix brand/gauges/type of Rotosounds, Fender, GHS roundwounds, some D'addario, guild,labella, etc.
    This is a great opportunity to build custom strings size sets, or
    replace single strings without buying a whole set. Even if you can't get a complete set the way you want it - you can likely get 3 of the 4 strings brand new at a fraction of the cost the stores charge per string and you only have to buy one string at a store at full price!!

    Cost per individual string is ONLY $1.50 per single. Email for your desired string size combination and brand.

    The sets prices are as marked above. I think this is a great deal as
    most of these sets go for $25-30 bucks each (some even higher)!!
    Shipping & handling is $4.00 for first set and 0.50 cents for
    each additional set added. For indidual strings, shipping is $4.00 for
    the first 1-4 strings, plus .50 cents for each addtional 1-4 strings.

    I can accept Personal checks, Postal money orders,
    Paypal (from checking saving account funded sources), Bidpay, and of
    course the godfather of payment - cash. Basically anything except credit
    cards as I don't have a business account to process those.

    I'm also on EBAY (ID is jimkarl) so check out my excellent selling history
    since 1998 - over 600 positive transactions!!

    Feel free to as any questions. These are UNUSED and SEALED - but most
    importantly CHEAP!!!

    SAVE some money and put NEW strings on your bass!

    Jim. (rocknroll@adelphia.net) bThis IS NOT my Paypal id - just email address to contact me!!

    Please email me to confirm I have the sets strings left you are interested. I don't regularly check this post, so the only way to get them is to contact me directly at rocknroll@adelphia.net. They are sold first pay - first serve.

    Specify if you are looking for rounds or flats, and the 4 string guages desired - I can make sets to match from packaged singles in that brand, though I don't have all guages (sold many of them).

    Email references available from former buyers !!

    Here are some commonly asked questions about my ongoing string sale:

    Q) Why are these sets so cheap?
    A) I bought a huge lot of strings (various brands/gauge/types at an
    auction house, took the brand sets/gauges out that I play regularly and
    am liquidating the rest.

    Q) Are these strings Used?
    A) NO. The are completely unused- never removed from their original
    packaging. In some cases the packing may be beat or torn - really just on some of the singles but the strings are in mint condition, the sets look brand new for the most part.

    Q) How long will these strings be for sale?
    A) Until they are gone. Every week or two I sell another couple sets,
    revise the list and repost.

    Q) What kind of guarentee do you have?
    A) I guarentee these strings are the brand/size/type etc. as stated and
    they are in unused condition. You can return any set that you receive
    that isn't what you paid for (assuming it is returned in the same
    condition - unused).

    Q) Do you accept trades?
    A) Sure - Make me an offer!

    Q) Are these strings a good deal? Is the price worth buying from you?
    A) This one is simple! IF I have what you want - YES! Seriously - I
    always recommend you price shop. I have told many people - goto
    www.juststrings.com - they have the biggest selection and the best
    prices on the internet, and better than any local music store. Whatever
    string brand/size/type you need - they have. That's were I buy strings
    for MY bass as well! However, if I have the brand/size you want, my
    price will be 1/2 to 1/4 the cost or more - simply because I am cleaning house. When this stuff is gone, I'm done. If I don't have what you need,
    or can't match a set that is close - I strongly recommend juststrings.com (I should get a kickback for this lol) But if the difference is between buying a $25 or
    $35 set with a .100 E string from them , and I have the same set brand
    set with a .105 E string for only $5.99 - It would seem to be worth the
    savings. The difference in the string size is so minor - it's not worth
    paying another $15-$25 (in my opinion).

    Q) Why don't you take credit cards?
    A) I am not a business. My paypal account does not accept credit card
    payments. I except all other forms of payment however.

    Q) How can I trust buying from you over the internet?
    A) I am on Ebay (ID jimkarl) and have been since 1998. Also, I have been
    selling from this string lot for over a year throughout the newsgroups
    and am happy to provide numerous email references from former buyers so
    you can contact them and verify my integrity.

    I call dibs on the following

    1 GHS Roundwound Med Gauge (.045-.105)
    1 Guild Round Roundwound Bass Light gauge (.040 - .100)
    1 Ernie Ball Group II Semi Firm Roundwound (.050-.105)

    This sounds like a great opportunity to try out some new strings w/o paying the hefty pricetag that comes with doing that.

    1 Ernie ball Group III Semi-flex Flatwound (.045-.100)
    2 Guild Round Roundwound Bass Extra Light gauge (.040 - .095)

    I'm claiming these, and would also like to put together a set of single flats (roto's preferably), in a lighter gauge, like: 40,60,80,100 if possible.

  4. I would like these....

    1 GHS Brite Flats Med Gauge
    1 Ernie ball Group III Semi-Flex Roundwound (.045-.100)

    By my calculation that is $16.50

    I will shoot you a PM and Paypal payment tomorrow in the AM.

    Dude, you need to let me know what the deal is here. I sent paypal to the email addy listed here, which said you are not registered. I just checked it out in my paypal account, and it is still unclaimed. You need to let me know if I need to cancel payment and send it somewhere else. This will put a "hold" on the money I sent you, and I need to get this taken care of.

    Tim, My apologies. The post wasn't clear - My paypal ID is not rocknroll@adelphia.net - that's just my email addy. I tried to email you but I'm guessing it's blocked for some reason. You shoulkd cancel the paypal. And contact me and I'll resolve the sets I still have left. Thanks.

    My apologies to everyone. I didn't know (or even think) to check this post for replies. As a result some people probably thought I was ignoring there request. Please DON'T post hold for strings/sets here - I can't honor that. They are sold first come first server to those who contact me at rocknroll@adelphia.net. If you have any kind of email address blocker you'll may want/need to temporarily add my name. I say that becuase I've had SEVERAL requests for strings, and many people that I've sent the info to wrap the deal never respond. I don't know if they just aren't checking their email or if they aren't getting the email at all. I know some are getting through as I sold sets to fourstring and Gibes, so I apologize in advance if you've asked for a hold on the strings and your sets have been sold. Please DON't send any paypla payments to me until I confirm a done deal. My email address is not my paypal ID - I have a ddiferent ID for that, so it just goes into unclamied space if you do that. (Tim COle needs to cancel his payment by the way, as he sent it to a non existent paypal address.

    Sorry for all the confusion, but I do still have several sets and gobs of singles left!! I'll also be clearer next time when posting. Thanks for your patience.

    Well ****, I posted right away what I wanted, and sent paypal to the addy you listed right away. I have no email blockers, and have had no problem receiving emails from anyone else for the record. In the paypal payment, I detailed what I wanted in the notification email, and you are just now letting me know??? I don't understand how that was not first come first serve, seeing as I paid, and detailed right away what I wanted. Sorry, this is too much of a pain in the ass for me.....either you have **** for sale, or you dont.

    Just forget it, I guess I will just have to reverse the payment, and wait until paypal releases it back to me.

    I have sent now three emails to your account, no bounces received on my end so you (or your ISP) must have spam blocker or something that's putting them in the bit bucket. Sorry for all the confusion, but nothing more that I can do about that. At least you'll get your paypal money back without issue.
