    Just got my BN-5 and while I love the sound of the strings it came with (I think they're made by Labella), I don't want to pay $45 every time I order a new set of strings. Any recomendations for a similar sound/feel in the $25-35 range that I could pick up @ my local Guitar Center?

    Hi,
    www.bigcitystrings.com

    They have the exactly Labella supersteps custom gauge that comes with the Fbass.
    Fast, resonable prices and reliable service.
    Hope it helps!

    I believe that Carvin is selling pretty close to the same string as what comes standard on Fbass. I changed my original Fbass string with the Carvins, and I really couldn't tell a heck of a lot of difference. They seemed to sound and feel like the same string to me and at only $12 a set.
