Hello rguitar:
There are a number of shops in Ontario that stock Wyres. I do not think there is one right now in St. Thomas.
Where in St Thomas or nearby do you shop?
I will communicate with our rep in Guelph to assist.
( there is www.wyresstrings.com/store)
Rds,
N.W.

I had not heard of these strings before. I'll try them out when I have a chance. Would Long & McQuade in London have them?

Hello Nick and welcome to this great forum. Your bio is quite impressive! You studied with Aliro Diaz and John Williams!
I have studied at the Royal Conservatory too, with Jeffrey McFadden and Robert Hamilton. I'd like to continue my study at some point (I'm working towards my Grade 7). I live in Pickering by the way.
Take care!
