    Has anyone else been having trouble with these guys? I ordered a couple of sets like two months ago. I recently e-mailed them asking about what the hang-up was and still haven't even received a reply. I was just wondering if anyone else was experiencing difficulties or not.

    There are numerous threads here dealing with their service, or lack of same. I have not dealt with them at all, based on what I've read here. Your experience seems typical, and so, I will continue dealing with others. I have bought strings from www.juststrings.com, www.elderly.com, and the Dude, and all have been smooth, trouble-free transactions.

    If you do a search of this forum, maybe with "tuning peg" as your search term, you'll probably find tons of info, unfortunately, none positive.
     
  3. yea do a search on it, if I am not mistaking Bruce had problems with them as well as others.

    Good Luck

    Avoid them altogether. I had the same problem and it turned out they never processed my order. I go through juststrings.com and they are always fast and reliable.

    Yup, you guys are right. Still nothing from them. I emailed them telling them in detail what I thought of them. I'm going through just strings now.
    You know, even though I sent a nasty email to them...they STILL haven't replied -- they suck.

    Flatwound already mentioned www.JustStrings.com, but I have to point out the great service I've received from them for a couple years now. Not one bad experience and very knowledgable and helpful too.:D

    Another voice to the chorus... not only do they have the most stunning array of strings AND SINGLE STRINGS I have yet found, they actually replied to a compliment I emailed them after an exceptionally speedy delivery -- even that reply was within 18 hours!
     
  9. Another point for www.juststrings.com

    they are in NH I am in MA if I order something I usualy get it next day no extra charge.

    I'm outside Chicago, and I swear I got my juststrings order two days after I placed it.

    Ok, these guys are good. Ordered a couple of sets Monday Night, got an email saying they had shipped the order out by noon on tuesday - shipped it, within 24 hours. Cool.
    Thanks for the suggestion guys, I'm a happy panda now.

    I'm going to put in a plug for our very own Herm, who has a lot of strings he's closing out. Very fair prices and quick shipment - plus, you're buying from a fellow TB'er!

    A real upstanding guy - at least he was still standing when I saw him at the guitar show Sunday.
