    I'm looking for a place to buy strings by the box(whether it be 10 or 12 packs) I decided I'm going to use them all eventually anyway so why not buy them all at once. I use Elixer electic 11's and acoustic 12's and DR elictric 11's hi beams. Maybe even try out those everly alloy 52 in 11's. Anyhow a list of good online string stores would be nice. Thanks. :cool:

    I've been buying strings from http://www.juststrings.com and have had excellent service. I use S.I.T. strings and JustStrings always has them in stock. Pretty good pricing, too.

    **for me** webstrings suck - bigtime. I've been a D'Addario user for decades and I always come back to them. Totally subjective topic however.

    If you like D'Addario's, you can buy 'em at MF - 10 sets for $29 - not a bad price.

    i'm not in disagreement there. they are cheap, but I feel like the quality is directly correlated to what webstrings actually charges. so yes, they do suck. my personal experience went like this. ordered 24 sets and they came in the mail. approximately 50% were decent, the other 50% of the sets were tarnished and oxidized when i took the new strings out of the package. but for $2.35 a set, you get what you pay for. i have since gone back to Ernie Ball's. go figure.
