    I have never seen these strings. Can you give me the full brand name, maybe what the package looks like?

    Also, do they sell them at Guitar Center, and what is an average cost.

    I go through strings like a madman right now and am still searching for the best strings for my aggressive style (hard slap & pop, multi-finger strumming, hard pulling).

    A set normally last a couple months until I break a string.

    I've tried DR lowriders, Rotosound Swingbass, Elixers, boomers. The Rotosounds seem to last longest so far.

    Thanks for the help!!!!

    The full name is Thomastik-Infeld and the package of the set that seems best for your use is mostly yellow and has a picture of a Modulus Q6 on it. The stock number is EB344, for a 4 string set, EB345 for a 5 and EB346 for a 6 strings set. They CAN get them at your local GC but most stores only special order them now. If you're getting a month from ordinary strings, the T-I's should last longer and for many players, about 2 times as long.

    If you'd like me to help locate or establish a local dealer for you, please call or email at your convenience at 1-800-644-5268 or kevinr@connollyandco.com

    Otherwise, they can be found at the following mail order/online retailers:

    www.mostring.net (1-877-999-2392)
    www.juststrings.com (1-800-822-3953)
    www.bigcitystrings.com (1-800-275-2971)
    www.elderly.com (1-888-473-5810)
    www.melbay.com (1-800-8MEL-BAY)

    I hope this helps and please let me know if I can ever be of assistance.
