    I'm preparing to take my first steps into the world of flatwound strings. After reading several threads on flatwounds, I've decided that I want to try a set of Lakland Joe Osborn Signature strings (40-60-80-100).

    I've tried to fill out the order form at, but I don't seem to be able to enter a non-US billing address, and the method (and cost) of shipping to the UK isn't very clear.

    Have any other UK TalkBass members tried to order from Lakland?

    Does anyone know of any websites that will ship these strings internationally without breaking the bank?

    I thought Laklands came with La Bella Hard Rockin Steel strings on them? Maybe I was wrong...

    The last set of Lakland J.O. flats I ordered was from Bass Central in Florida. I dealt with Grasshopper and the service there is great. Give them a yell, and maybe they can give you a decent shipping cost to the UK. BTW, L.J.O. flats are great.

    lo-end...he was talking about strings, not basses.

    I am UK based but have been to Bass Central and have ordered some pickups from Grasshopper, the service so far has been excellent. Give them an e mail and ask for prices

    Also Martin Petersen at the Gallery is a Lakland Dealer you could see if he does strings

    I know he was talking about strings, and I thought the strings that Lakland uses were La Bella strings.
