Online String Stores Recommendations

Recommended Posts

Can any one recommend a good, reasonably priced online string retailer?

Looked at all the usual suspects, like Stringbusters, Strings Direct, eBay, etc., but are there any others out there that folk use and can recommend?

All this talk of string brands, and the qualities of the different lines makes me want investigate various options.

I got a crazy deal on D'addario strings on Bax but a lot of the time you need to be there at the right time as I've found that their deals can change quickly.

I bought 4 twin packs of D'addario EXL165s for £26 a pack (£13 a set). At the moment Strings Direct are £40 for the twin packs

I have actually found Bass Direct very competitive in the past. I remember getting an amazing deal on Dunlop Super Brights from them.

Yep, every now and then you find some complete bargains on Amazon.

I've bought Hi Beams and Fat Beams from 3rd party retailers on there for close to half normal price, including delivery from the US.

Bizarrely enough, I've just bought a Mono Betty strap from Amazon for £35, including free postage. Bargain, seeing as they're about £42 everywhere else.
