    I'm desperate!

    I've been pondering about getting me some TIs, probably flats, but I have no idea where in Europe I could get them. So, where could I?

    Anyone?

    Here goes...please remember: This info's from a Yank (oops! I mean Texan :D ).

    Stringbusters. They're an online UK shop. TI Jazz Flats go for
    £22.99 + £2.50 S&H. That's about €40 or $37USD per set.

    stringsdirect. Another UK firm. About €43 for a set of Flats.
    They have 'quantity' discounts - €42 for 3 sets, etc.

    sheetmusicplus. Even though they're a U.S. based store,
    their overseas shipping rates are very reasonable (a lot better
    than Just Strings).
    I'm surprised there aren't more European shops that sell TI's :confused:.
    After all, they're based in Vienna ain't they? Anyhoo, here's the
    distributor page from the TI site - click .

    Maybe fellow TB'r Thomguy can throw in his 2¢. I think he works for
    Connolly & Co. (the U.S. TI distributor). I remember in one of Thomguy's
    posts, he listed a BUNCH of places that sell their strings.
