    Hi! Just wondering if anyone bought these from somewhere in Europe, am currently buying them from the U.S.A.
    Mainly intererested in their guts and gut-likes.

    I contacted Velvet directly. Although I haven't ordered from them recently, they have great customer service, and sell for a fair price. They would have been a special order for any of the shops that I usually deal with in Canada as I was looking for their 5ths tuning strings. Their price with shipping worked out marginally better than the quote the shops offered me.

    I find Thomann and Bassico the cheapest for sending to the UK - for some reason all the UK-based retailers have extraordinary mark-ups (like 50%)
