    Hi! I've been having a tough time finding someplace on the net where i can buy strings in Europe, since sheetmusicplus.com closed their musician store.. I'd rather not order from the US, because of toll and shipping costs..

    Any other sites? Where do all the european guys and girls buy their strings? My local stores are way too expensive, and have really poor selection..

  5. All these sites are great. But don't forget that there's a lot to save when buying strings in the US. Problem is of course tax and customs, but even if you have to pay that, the strings most likely doesn't get more expensive than they would've costed in europe. So all in all: buying strings in the US is just as cheap if you have to pay taxes, and much cheaper if you don't.

    Try: www.bassguitarstrings.us (great fast service, and only 10$ for shipping to europe) ;)
