    hi everybody,
    a week ago i decided to give the SIT (power wound)a try for my 5 string fretted (it's an argetinan bass which looks like a warwick - very cute - my 3rd bass).
    anyway i can't get SIT here in israel cause they don't ship them so i decided to try buying online
    at the bassguitarstrings.us.
    well for me the price is half from prices in israel and the shipment was fast (and free...allright...)and i got good costumer service from tom the sales maneger.

    and now for the strings - great !!
    very smooth, very clear and they do stay in tune
    when i compare them to the d'addarios i had.

    i also recently got a dean markley Nickel steel
    and these strings just went great with my bass -
    very punchy and lots of mid.

    i used to bee a big fan of slappers for my fretless and ken smith for my jazzbass but now i
    think i'll go with dean markley and SIT.

    I am just about to start learning (fretless) bass by way of a 50th b'day present, and put in asearch for "fretless AND israel"
    Whereabouts do you live? Can you recommend any places to to try to find a second-hand fretless (either Fender J or something unusual)?
