I need help finding tapered strings in the UK

  1. I've done a search of Stringsdirect and can only find Fender strings. I'd rather have D'addario Xls..... Can anyone help me please?

  3. Is this a UK site? I need to order them and be able to pay via PayPal.
  4. Don't seem to be any taperwound strings there.....
  5. I hasten to add these sites must be in the UK.

    Just go to a music store and purchase some. If they are out of stock have them order some. Sounds like you are going through unnecessary hassle.
  7. Well, I did an experiment. I had a .125 low B lying around, and I decided to stick it on the thumb to see if it fitted. It did. It fits the nut fine(dunno how but it does), but it sits a bit high in the bridge. It soudns ok though(Ituned the bass CGCF). Is this safe?
  8. Presumably, you will discover the answers to both questions if and when you visit the website.

    Sheesh!! :meh: :meh:
  9. I did. There were no Taperwound strings.
