Can someone point me to a good website to buy strings?
juststrings.com is pretty good....never used em myself but friends talk about them
Wow, my chance to do my good deed for today:
Let me illustrate with an example: I own a Conklin Groove Tools 7-string [yep, seven]. By buying bulk strings [six of each gauge] from these guys [and basically creating a custom-gauge set], what do you think I paid, per set?
...How about $12 and some change? That's probably half of what most people pay for a 4-string set.
Amazing, ain't it? You're welcome.
+2 on JustStrings.com. I use them all the time. They have nearly everything that's available and their prices can't be beat.
yeah, other than juststrings I order from musiciansfriend if i can get a better deal. And then there's always webstrings, though that's something else entirely. Although the strings i've tried from there haven't been bad.
Here's some online string links I've collected over the years, including Just Strings. I've never bought from any of them so I can't rate them but have a look through them and see if more than one place has what you're looking for.
stringsandbeyond.com ships free if over $35. Excellent service.
I got some LaBella strings from Imperial Guitar. Great prices, fast service. Juststrings had Deep Talkin Flats for $50, Imperial has them for $25.
Good tip, thanks.
I use juststrings.com
I just made an order from them this morning. 5 sets of Rotosounds coming my way.
Another good store is :
Planet Bass is another great option.
Works fine for me.
Great service, and excellent shipping.
I find the lowest pricing is from BP Strings. This includes both string price and shipping costs.
The online ordering process with BP Strings leaves a lot to be desired. You either have to call them long distance, or submit the online form and Bob gets back to you in 24 hours. I couldn't wait this time, so I bought two 5-string sets of DR LowRider Nickels from JustStrings. I got them right away, but the cost was $7 per set higher.
I am having a hard time finding affordable DR Fatbeams 40-100 - Marcus Miller signature set, for the UK. All the Amrican sites kill of their good deals with very high shipping costs. Any ideas for UK/Europe?
I don't know what the going rate is, but £21 for 4 string and £25 for 5 string from Thomann.de, their shipping is 10 euros, but if you buy bulk or a lot of things it is quite cheap generally.
Very Cheap! for us:
Not sure how they compare to the other places mentioned, but theperfectbass.com offers a Talkbass discount. Just type the word "talkbass" into the promotion code box in the shopping cart to see what the discount is on different items.
Another +1 for juststrings...
I just recently noticed that they have singles....
so I just started customizing some Rotosound swingbass sets (50 65 80 105, instead of the stock 45 for the G)
