Ordering strings in Britain

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by parrott, Jul 22, 2002.

  1. I snapped one of my strings today, I have no spares, I start recording on Thursday and nobody around here stocks the strings I use.

    So does anybody know of anywhere, online or just mail order within the UK that does next-day or next-next-day deliveries, could you please tell me?

    Like soon, please!!!

  3. I use D'Addario groundwounds, but I might have to change because I seem not to be able to get them anymore.

    Ohhhh :D

    I think sheetmusic plus has what you're lookin' for.

    They are U.S. based, but have reasonable overseas shipping rates.
    Problem is, I dunno if they can get them to you in time - even
    with express shipping...
    At the link above, select "4-string bass" (Instrument),
    "D'Addario" (Brand), and "ground" for the keyword.
    It should turn up D'Addario Series II..."Stainless ground
    roundwound 4-string bass strings."

    sorry dude :(. Good luck! :)

    I buy all my strings from there - just ordered some more D'Addarios - but they do take about a week to come. I always have a few spare packets though!

    The good thing about them is that they are basicaly half the price you would pay in a UK shop - vene including post and packing! :)
