    You can get them from juststrings.com (760N6 or 760N-EXL for extra long). http://www.juststrings.com/lab-760n6.html or http://www.juststrings.com/lab-760n6-exl.html

    Also, bigcitystrings.com has a 4 string set plus singles for the hi C and low B. http://www.bigcitystrings.com/labellb.htm

    bigcity has better prices and shipping is $3.95. juststrings charges $5.95 for shipping, but they have the extra long set. bigcity only carries the standard lengths.

    For a cheaper route, order a 5 string set from carvin.com and a single hi C from bigcity. $24.95 (5 string from Carvin) + $7.99 (Carvin S&H) + $6.95 (hi C from bigcity) + $3.95 (bigcity S&H) = $43.84 total! Compare this with $56.80 from bigcity or $64.29 from juststrings. Caveat: the 5 string set from Carvin is the EXL extra long set. The low B is 38" from ball to silk.
