    anybody used 'em? i like being able to get a custom-sized set of strings for under $13 for the set (in bulk), and being able to get a high c string for my fiver instead of a low b.

    I used them a couple of times and was very impressed with the clarity and punch and less fret noise along with lasting longer. The biggest thing is they go right in tune and stay in tune! But I will say that I over tune my strings by a half octave and leave them sit for a few hours and then tune them to pitch and they sound like very expensive strings (to me) and great price too!

    Reviving this since it's been 9 years, and I'm curious...

    Has anyone tried the juststrings stainless bulk/single strings?

    I don't play nickels, and I'm used to the longevity and tones that I get from DR Hi Beams and (more recently) D'Addario ProSteels.

    I've spent over $200 on strings from JustStrings.com in 2019. Rotosound, Ernie Ball, DR and Dunlop.

    I'm one of those bassists who likes bright strings. Dunlop Super Bright Nickel and DR High Beams are my favorites.

    I've bought Ernie Ball plain steel .09s and .10s for guitar in bulk from JustStrings.... but not bass strings. For under $1 each, they have worked out well.
     
  8. I think @JEDI BASS resurrected this 9-yr-old thread to ask specifically about Juststrings' own brand of bulk strings. ;)

    This seems like a genius stretching technique

    I wasn't aware JustStrings had their own brand of bulk strings.

    JustStrings is great in my experience. Only thing I don't like is the shipping charge. I'm used to free shipping with Amazon. JustStrings uses USPS and it's at least $5 to ship to where I live.

    I would like to know as well. I use Dunlop Super Bright SS MARCUS MILLER signature set. Like them but they are pricey. Always willing to try new strings, looking for the perfect string for me.

    I have gotten used to more balanced tension sets like the 43-63-85-107 Pro Steels that I’m putting on most of my basses, these days. So, being able to buy whatever gauges I want, in increments of .005, is tempting! I could build 40-60-85-110 sets for around 10 bucks. I just don’t know if I’ll dig the tone and feel. They sell the strings in packs of 6. So, I’d have 6 sets to do something with, like em or not.

    I'm just discovered this today. I keep wondering what are they most similar to?
    I can't find anyone else who still sells singles anymore.
     
  17. You can still order just about any singles through Fret Nation. All you need to do is to email Jason at info@fretnation.com and let him know what you need.

    you can also order singles of juststrings bulk selection. For those that are interested, the nickel strings feel like ghs strings to me.

    Yeah, if the neck can handle it. And only one string at a time at that. Tension varies as the square of the increased pitch, so raising the pitch of the string 1/2 octave doubles the tension on that one string. A firm, but not harsh tug to settle the string is one thing, but this can pop the string, damage the bass, and otherwise be very inconvenient at best when (yes, I said when, not if) something does go awry.

    Agree! Tuning up a step would be the most I’d ever go. Although I prefer to just buy quality strings that don’t stretch a lot, and give them a tug once installed.
