I think I'm finally seeing the light as far as changing my strings often is concerned, but now I've got another problem. Y'see, I've found myself spoiled by the string gauges on the Fodera Victor Wooten sets, but I can't seem to find anyplace to get 'em in any quantity. The closest thing I could find to the right set in the "popular" brands of strings are the D'Addario XL220's, and even those don't get the gauges quite right (a .060 D instead of .055, a .125 B instead of .120... yeah, I'm picky.) So I did a little more looking, and saw a couple places where I could get individual strings in bulk, meaning I could just put together any ol' set I want to. The thing I'm worried about is that, with "generic" strings, I could end up having to change my strings every week, which negates the point of buying a large supply of strings in the first place. Sorta like getting twenty sets of "Mars: Musician's Planet" strings and then finding out they sound like rubber bands wrapped in poison ivy and leave little nickel splinters under the skin of your fingertips... if you get where I'm going with the terrible analogy. Anyway... does anybody have any experience in buying good-sounding strings in bulk? If so, where from? I've spent the last fifteen years settling for strings I'm not completely happy with, and I'm kinda tired of it.
