Send me your old strings!

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by Alex, Jan 8, 2006.


  1. I have this grand scheme in mind.....Just plz send me all of your old, dead strings. It's just $0.35 for postage

    I will post the finished project when I finish.....IF I finish ;)

    PM me for address

    Thanks

    ~alex

    Edit : I read about the Madagascar string thing, and I've decided that that is a better cause than this one. sorry if you were really excited about sending me strings.;)

    There was a thread just like this about a year ago.. trading old strings..

    Good idea.
     
  3. Except I don't want to trade them....
     
  4. You guys are so ungenerous!
     
  5. Is it some kind of art project?

    If I send my old strings to Madagascar so unwealthy bass players can make music, it's a valid reason to pay postage.
    What's yours ?

    I'd love to know where you're getting thirty-five cents. I know about Media Mail and Bulk Printed Matter... is there some secret "Old Dead Strings" rate I don't know about? :p

    Anyway... can you use cr*p strings? I very quickly broke the G in the original set that came on my Kramer beater bass, so the other three aren't dead, but they're not worth much as strings either. I think they're still floating around here somewhere.

  10. crap strings are great! I'm fairly sure that a stamp costs 0.35? You should be able to fit a few strings into an envelope, eh?

    You're not making something ILLEGAL are you? I nor my strings will partake in such activities!

    :mad: :scowl: :eek: :eyebrow: :rollno:




    ....unless there's a profit percentage, royalties, guarantee that I will be spared during the bloodshed, that sort of thing... :ninja:

    Are you making a bracelet or something? I think people just want to know waht you are doing, no need to be dificult about it, tahts not how you get people to send you free stuff.

    Stamps are $.39 now. They just went up..plus a padded envelope. I wouldn't put them in a regular unpadded, they might arouse suspicion :)

    I've got several (4-7)used sets. Thought about doing some of this
    http://guitarstringjewelry.com/
    But for $7 I'll send them so you can try. Sounds like the bass version of 'locks of love'.
    PM me and I'll go see how many sets I have.
