TI Jazz Flats for 6.

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by Marty Forrer, Apr 23, 2001.


  1. I know the TI threads have been done to death, but I wanted to share this experience. I ordered a six string set from www.sheetmusicplus.com, and waited, and waited, and waited. After about 3 months I got sick of waiting and cancelled my order. I re-ordered with www.juststrings.com, and they were dispatched in two days. OK, so juststrings are not as cheap as sheetmusicplus, but I think I'm happy to pay the extra to get good service. BTW, these strings are fantastic! I cant wait for them to wear in.

    Well I only had to wait 3 weeks for a 4 string set of TI's from sheetmusicplus. Just strings has always been very quick and its not worth the wait to save a buck. I use just strings exclusively now.

    Guys, guys, guys...I ship the same day I receive payment and only charge $1.50 for First Class postage or $3.50 for Priority Mail (no "handling charge or minimum order charges). It doesn't cost $4.95 to send a set of strings Priority Mail!

    OOPs! Sorry Dude, didn't mean to forget ya. I bought all the TI's I have before you became a dealer. Get em from the Dude, he'll treat ya right!
     
  5. OK Dude, you have my undivided attention. I live in New Zealand, what's your rate for airfreight? Juststrings is exorbitant, like $35US, but when they got here I noticed the stamps came to $17US.

    Gee nothing like making a profit on postage huh??

    I went to the www.usps.com website and check International postal rates for a small package at 1 pound and here's what I got:

    Global Priority Mail - Flat-rate Envelope (large) 3 - 5 Days $9.00 9-1/2" x 12-1/2"

    So $9.00 postage plus any VAT or taxes you might have to pay.

  8. Thanks Dude. My TI's will last a while, but I'll be in touch next time. Also, I'll give you a yodel to see if ya stock upright strings next time I need some. Ta.
     
  9. Dude,
    Sounds like you have a good thing going here. I can't seem to figure out how to look at the price list or how to order. Can you point me in the right direction?

    I also caught wind that our own Herm is blowing out some strings this week so you might want to check with him to see what he may have left in Thoms.

    I also heard of some sporatic TI Strings being blown out at super low prices (like $14.00 a set) at some Guitar Center Stores this past weekend so if you live near one of the "Evil Empires" you may want to pop in and see what they have...I know, I know, GC sucks but I will go in there and snap up blowouts...just don't ask any of their trained minimum wage monkeys anything too "technical" like string tensions or string construction. If you know what you want then go in there and snap them up.

    True story: I went into the local Guitar Center and asked for flatwound strings, and their "string specialist" told me they didn't carry that "BRAND." I almost got a cramp in my orbital socket from rolling my eyes...

    Yeah you have to know what you want when you buy from them. They seem to have "blow outs" on some gear from time to time if it doesn't fly off the shelves as in this case. The sad truth of the matter is that they'd actually sell more gear at regular prices if they actually paid a bit more to get qualified sales help but they're stuck in their own "Catch 22".
