Strings For Really cheap

Discussion in '[OLD FORUM] Bass Guitars, Amps, and Accessories: F' started by Herm, Apr 20, 2001.


  1. As many of you probably know, I've been liquidating my string inventory from my former online string business (StringsForCheap.com) for a while now. I could have sold the inventory in bulk to another dealer, but my original thought was to allow my fellow TBers to take advantage of this sale by getting strings for an incredible deal - and many of you have. However, I still have alot of strings left, and need to get rid of them. I have been storing them in a climate controlled room to retain their "freshness".

    I have strings from the following string companies left in stock...
    GHS
    Dean Markley
    Fender
    SIT
    small quantities of other brands are left as well
    (Sorry - no more Thomastik's left)

    I'll be selling them throughout the month of May, as well as the remainder of April, but after that - they are going to be sold to other dealers, who will sell them at regular retail prices.

    Take advantage of it now before that happens!

  2. Do you have any GHS PB18's by any chance? They're for a high-F on a 7-string.

    Also, do you have any GHS Progressives?

    Herm, why not just attach your inventory list to this thread? BTW, all, I bought 3 sets from him a little while back - and they were at a GREAT price. If you have any of those SIT Power Flats left, I may contact you.
     
  6. got any ernie balls?
     
  7. Thought about it, but it's way too big to list in one post. Maybe if I split it up into different posts. Hmmm

    Please email me at JDHerm98@aol.com for questions on strings, and not reply to the thread. It's much easier to reply and answer questions. For the ones who asked already...

    Dave Grossman
    No PB 18's, I have some Progressives (email for gauges and quantities)

    Jake15
    Sorry, all DR's have been sold

    old_skool
    I have 3 sets of Medium 5 string Boomers (email for price) Shipping is charge by actual cost. I'll let you know what that is when I weigh your order.

    jrthebassguy
    sorry, all Ernie's Balls are gone too.

    gweimer

    Only one set of the Power Flats 50-105 left.

    Thanks for the interest, guys!

    If you want to, just attach it as a text file. Just a thought.
     
  9. Duh! I totally forgot about the ability to attach files to posts! After I get my computer working properly again, I'll be able to do just that.

    I'm lookin for some good flatwounds, but I've never used flats before. Tell me if you have any good brands of flatwounds at a good price (I just wanna try some out and see if I like em). Thanx
     
  11. Got some GHS Precision Flats left. Email me for prices.

    I'll be attaching the list of strings I have left (as gweimer and Brad Suggested) later on tonight in my next post on this thread. I have to do a a physical inventory because my computer did a serious crash and burn
     
  12. The list is attached, but I can't seem to get it to retain it's original format. I'm not very good at this stuff. If you can read it, remember to take 35% off the prices on the list.
     
  13. StringsForCheap.com Bass String Inventory as of 4/23/01

    shipping charges are quoted on a per order basis,
    and charged actual cost in most cases
    (usually around $3.95 in the US, could be more or less, depending on order size)
    shipping on International orders quoted per order
    discounts for purchase of multiple sets

    Take 35% off of these prices!!

    Herm, thanks for the SR2000 5 and 6 sets.

    They are just what I was looking for in a taperwound string, and the price couldn't be beat!

    Guys, if Herm has anything left that you play, or even want to try, go for it! The price is right, and I got my strings from him 4 days after I ordered them!

    Thanks again, Herm.
     
  18. Yes. The electric bass was Bach's favorite instrument. He told me so in a dream.
