UPDATED 21/05/2020

I am selling used strings (some new ones), prices shown are for one set.

  • Thomastik Spirocore mittel (6 sets), 50€ (standard string for Jazz playing, also good under the bow, powerful, punchy tone)
  • Pirastro Flexocor (5 sets), 100€ (one of the best orchestral strings, much thinner and easier to play than the Spirocore, nice dark tone)
  • Daddario Zyex light 80€ (very good Jazz sound, a little brighter than Spirocore, they bow well, good hybrid string)
  • Daddario Zyex medium, E, A, G, 50€
  • Daddario Kaplan light new, 140€ (very good orchestral string, easy to play, thin diameter)
  • Innovation Polychrome, new 140€ (perfect old school pizz sound, very much like wrapped gut strings, they bow well and have a nice dark tone)

Shipping fee is 5-15€ depending on your location, insured up to 500€ with DHL.

I am offering free shipping for every 

order of three sets or more.

Hi !

Thanks, they look like they are in good condition, and I'm happy to take them off your hands.
Do you want to DM me?
Do you normally use Paypal, do you know the service transferwise?


Best,
Conor

Off topic ... But WHY ..HOW do you have SIX sets of spiros!!?  Never mind the rest. Thought I was being profligate with three sets of double bass strings.


Robbed a string shop? 😁

I had 15 sets or so, I have been playing double bass for 15 years and had stored all the strings I used in three boxes, so I decided to get rid of most of the used strings I have. Usually I play Spirocore for about a year and then get new ones, same thing with Flexocor. I used Spirocore for Jazz pizz and Flexocor for bowing, but now I play Evah Pirazzi medium tension for pizz and Flexocor Deluxe for bowing.

I've had the same set of helicores for 18 years.  Some of my spiros have passed their 30th birthday!

Maybe time for a change.

You can use any steel string for decades, especially Spirocore seem to last very long, lots of players also like the sound of worn-in strings because they don´t have the sharp high end anymore.

I should have one set left, let me check...

Any joy 😊? Cheers, John

Actually I’ve just bought something else 🤦🏻‍♂️
But could be tempted by a set of the mittels if they’re left?
