    My store ships to Australia for $9.95. In fact, Aussies are about 50% of my international sales.

  8. sweet! the price i got for bootzillas was $120aus :eek: ill ask the expert now, are the Dean Markley blue steels 36" scale?

    I believe that they are your basic standard long scale (34") and wouldn't work on a 36" bass.

  10. damn...i was really lookin forward to trying the blue steels....well looks like bootzilla's...or fat beams

    you dont happen to be able to do mix and match sets 36" e and 32" gda do ya? :D

    I gotta agree with tappel. Tom is a stand up guy, and I use him for ALL of my string purchases as of the past year or so. He does right by me every time, never a problem, never a hassle.

    P.S. He's modest, so here's his website: Don't forget to try the Ironman string sets. (Tom, are they 34" or longer")
  12. yeah..i checked his profile and went to his site...i see me doing some buisness shortly.....screw paying $120 for some dr's :D

  14. Hi Tom,

    So, is your store?


    I have some Rotosound swing bass strings, and some rotosound flats on the way to me from you at the moment. It's my first order from your site.

    I'm hoping to receive them any day now. So far I've been pleased with your site, prices and communication. And thanks for keeping your shipping costs to Australia reasonable!

    Keep up the good work.

    Hi Luke,

    I have great success getting stuff from here in NY to Australia in good time; usually 7-10 days. Do me a favor and email when you get your package. Let me know if it arrived promptly and safe. I like to keep tabs. :)

    As far as shipping costs go, I'm considering a slight increase for international customers. Not much, though... maybe $1.50 or so. I hope that won't chase 'em away!

    I just ordered some D'Addario 1/2 Rounds on Musician's Friend for $13 US. They've got a bunch of other strings on clearance, check it out, maybe they ship internationally.

  18. Hi Tom,

    Received the strings today in good order, and good time.

    Thanks :hyper:

    I'll be ordering my next strings from you for sure. :D
