1 dlaf_2 3 weeks ago When I was looking for suitable strings for my Schecter Hellcat VI (octave down E-baritone), WB suggested trying Stringjoy. They are a small company that handwinds their strings (on original Jimmy D'Aguisto equipment) - made of all U.S. parts - each string inspected. They make custom sets and offer half-gauges. Free shipping on most orders. They are a tad higher than the cheapest strings, but I think it's a great deal - not boutique by a long shot. Check them out. Great product, good price, made here.
