    I've sent money to a friend who lives in Los Angeles
    to buy some STRINGS for Bass..
    The Strings i'm looking for are :
    1. VINCI light 040
    2. Ernie Ball Slinky 040
    3. VINCI Extra-Light 035
    4. Carvin 04 model 4011
    5. D'addario XL 220 040

    (for 4 strings bass..)

    He (says..) can't find any of there !!
    is it possible ??
    he says "in store are available only
    045 medium gauge .. not 040 (!!)"

    Where he has to go to find the Strings
    i'm searching ?
    (ha lives in San Pedro - L.A.)
    where he can order, on Line ??

    Thank you very much

    Plenty of strings with 40's. Ken Smith's are a great place to start.

    good 'ol USA/Tampa fla.
    The SamAsh music stores that are in the Tampa bay area carries the D'addario XL220 Super Softs.As a matter of fact I just purchase a set not even a week ago.I wish that D'addario would make a Super Soft set in a heavier guage because I actually use the 4-string super softs on 1 of my 5 strings along with a 135 tapered B because I really like the feel of these strings.However these particular strings can get a little buzzy but if you can work with your setup they are pretty good strings for the money IMO
