    Anyone know where 5 string sets can be had for less than $50?

    These things sound good but they sure are pricey.

    They seem to all be about $70, so I don't think you'll find any for your price. IMO they are worth the money.

    I completely agree that they're great strings. Worth the money? Well, I guess if they're the only string that can give me the sound I'm looking for then maybe they are.

    However, the idea of buying 3 sets for around $200 REALLY hurts!

    Unless you are somehow pounding the heck out of them I can't see going through a set in under a year. I had a set on my Tacoma that I played pretty hard and they were beat after about 8 months, but the set on my Turner Ren was going on 30 months and was still fine.
