I tried a P bass strung with these and sounded very good, warm with just the right amount of bite, so I decided that, as my Slinkys are quite dead right now, I could try them. I went to a music store to find out that they needed to order them and that a pack of 4 strings would cost me 50€ . I told this to my sister who is going to NY next month and she offered herself to buy two packs for me in case they were cheaper over there. If they are, could someone tell me the price? If you could also give me the adress of some nice music stores in Manhattan where she can look for them I'd be grateful.
