    Hi all,

    I'm trying to set up one of my basses as a tenor bass (strung ADGC). It's got TI Powerbass strings on it which sound very good. I was was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to give/sell me a single 'C' string from a 6 string Powerbass set - it's very difficult to obtain single 'C' strings from this set.

    Alternatively - anyone know of a retailer who'll sell single 'C' strings from a TI Powerbass set?

    Thanks all.

    Bugger.

    The cost of shipping to the UK is so high that I might as well buy a whole new set of strings locally (not TI's, they don't have them locally, just any brand I can get.).

    Anyone else able to help out?

    Have you tried Steve at The Dudepit? His TI prices are the best and I believe that he ships Airmail post from the US which is pretty reasonable. I'm pretty sure that he does singles.

    If that doesn't work, PM me. I can certainly get them.

    I'm very sorry Pete :( I should've checked your profile first

    I found this one UK site ( Barnes & Mullins Ltd ) that has a
    search engine for T/I dealers in your area

    Here are some results: click

    Notduane, I repeat once again: you rawk. Not only do you help, you even practically spoon-feed me the links!

    I've been to the various music shops in the link before and had no luck, in spite of what the search engine says. However I'll pick up the phon again and let my fingers do the walkin tomorrow and see if I hit gold.

    Thanks again!
