Ostrie Music Supply offers them in 6-packs at 44,-$ and ship them worldwide. My EU supply is the guitarwebshop in Switzerland but they are sold out at least on the 100p as I was so egoistic to buy up their remaining stock!
Fernanderzmusic is another supply source in the US and their MOQ is 4 sets at 30 $.
There is of course a lot of La Bella in these strings but their gauge composition is really unique and in a way I always wanted Nylon string to be. I do use them alternatively with Oasis Sostenuto basses, which are in themselves the better basses. But the DM basses are the better match though they lack a bit weigth. Their superior overall performance does more than compensate for that ... at least in my case. For my Kohno Pro-J they seem to be the ideal complete string set.
I'm excited to hear how you opinion about them!
I didn't find a proper source for Mari strings in Europe. There is indeed an online shop in Switzerland, but they are quite expensive (Swiss Franks) and often sold out. So I ordered from Ostrie in the US. Cheap buy and fast delivery. 6,99 $ for the shipping to Europe doesn't make me suffering financially. Thanks for the Ostrie hint. I will order there more often I guess, as Mari trebles are indeed fantastic. (I only stick to my g string Knobloch carbon).
