    Hey all,
    I was at NAMM this year, and stumbled upon a string company from Korea called Olympia strings...they gave me several sets to try out and WOW!!! They sound great, but even better is the price point....under 2.50$ for a 4 string set!! They are not distributed here in the US yet, and I am talking to them about getting 2 or 3 hundred sets and never having to buy strings again!! There's some cat on EBay who's selling them from the UK, but obviously at a healthy profit.
    Anyone here tried 'em? They sound like a set of LaBella Slappers, and they are quite excellent under the fingers!!

    never heard of em, but there's an ebay store in canada that's selling them for 25.99 (USD) for a set of 10. that turns out to be a little more than 2.50 per set.

    edit: nvm.. those are guitar strings :oops:
