    I use odd gages, and have been ordering from a now defunct retailer who was able to give me very fair prices on those specific gages.
    Does anyone have any recommendations they could share?
    I use Ken Smith strings.
    Thanks.
     
  2. A defunct retailer as in bassstringsonline.com?

    It's been re-launched as fretnation.com. The same owner, Jason (aka @SLaPiNFuNK).

    FretNation is the place. Its growing so it will get more brands as he gets back on his feet fully.

    FretNation of course. Jason is the most knowledgeable person I know of when it comes to bass strings. He is my go to guy for sure. Great prices and the best customer service ever.

    Pittbull Audio (real store in El Cajon, CA), on their ebay store. Sells what they have in stock, and ships very fast. Usually best prices like GHS Boomers M3045 45-105 for $18.44 with free shipping. Tough to beat that.

    Thanks all, Yup, got hooked up with Jason again. FretNation rules. For some reason he was banned for posting in this thread. Not sure why, best deal around for my needs, he took great care of me, to my delight my order arrived the next day! I didn't pay for express service.

    Yes poor form. This string forum has been fortunate to have Jason’s presence and all of the free knowledge he has contributed. If we are gonna start banning people like Jason.... we might be jumping the shark here.
