    I believe the company would be Thomastik-Infeld Strings. It took me awhile to figure it out too. :)

    Most people here get them through Dude at the Pit.


    Check the 1st post on the above forum for ordering details.

    Anders, if you find an European distributor, tell me. They are based in Austria, I think, so there should be someone around..

    Check Millbrook Musiikki in Helsinki.

    Jazz - 45 eur
    Powerbass - 39,50 eur

    Not very cheap, but still quite normal prices for strings here in Finland.

    EDIT:I messed with 4 and 5-string sets.

    http://www.thomann.de lists a four string set (jf344) at 35 Euro, and a five string set (jf345) at 52 Euro. I guess you'd like to buy some more things at the same time to keep the shipping and handling overhead down though.

    Well that's a surprise! I looked for them half a year ago and there were none to be found. Thanks, guys.

    I bought them via the internet direct from their own site - as has been mentioned, they are based in Austria, so things like VAT being added doesn't come into it - they wer pretty cheap, compared to what I might pay in England.
