OK, black label strings are like gold dust here in the UK. Even the usual online string stores are finding them hard to get in stock. I really like these strings, nice feel, tight tension, bright & zingy, but still deep & roiunded, and the tapered B string. Can anyone recommend another brand and 'model' string that behave and have the same above features as the black labels? Greg PS, I might get in touch with M.A.D. (the UK distributer) and see if I can get some direct from them.
