Best on-line spot to buy strings

Post by Zoodlemaker » Sat Jun 24, 2017 10:37 pm

I've never purchased guitar strings on line, does anyone have a preference for sources for purchases and string types? Thanks!

SBM is highly praised on this forum for good reason. I have been using them for years and consistently you find they have the best selection (they even let you buy single strings), quick shipping, and best customer service hands down. Because they have far more than just strings, I find it a one stop shop for all my guitar needs.

Strings by Mail if you want to heavily mix and match strings to favor your individual tastes and find a working combination.

Strings and Beyond is better for bulk purchases when they issue their 15 percent discounts, they also from time to time offer clearance prices on D Addario strings. I prefer them for bulk purchases. But Strings By Mail offers the biggest selection and reasonable prices.

Either are good and I think the two of them are the best on-line string vendors. No complaints, good luck. Go nuts.

For the strings that I want, Strings by Mail is significantly cheaper than buying from the manufacturer, and certainly much cheaper than buying in a store in Israel. Service is quick, excellent, and reliable. Variety is superb.
