    Once you click, add to cart, you print out the order sheet.
    They decided to do "checks only"...credit card relationship was not worth their time or dime.

    It will take a few extra days to process.

    Thomastik-Infeld makes a super long 5 string set of their jazz flats. Add a C string from the 34" set, and you're good to go. That C string is 37" from ball to silk, so it works.

    Oh, that's good to know actually -- thanks!

    I was able to pick up a set of Rotosound flats from the dudepit, so they're hopefully on their way over now.

    Another Q -- which flats (between the Rotos and TI's) would be better for occasional slapping? I opted for the Rotos because Steve said the TIs are looser, but I'm wondering if it'd be a different ball game with the 35" scale length?

    Sorry for milking this thread, just curious if anyone's tried both.

    Thanks again!

    If you want long scale 35" strings, flats, round or semi then I can recommend

    These strings acually fit and are good quality
