    Default Where's the best place online to buy strings?

    I want to experiment with different strings and order a bunch. Was wondering where the best place is as far as price and selection is on the web to order from? Elderly seems to have a big selection, but their shipping in my opinion is way too much and it takes forever to get to you. Any other suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

    I've found the best prices (including shipping) on eBay, but selection can be limited. Uke Republic's shipping is reasonable and the selection is good. And now that I've fallen for Martin M600s, I buy those on Amazon when I'm a few dollars short of the $25 needed to get free shipping if I'm ordering something else.

    Elderly & Uke Republic. If you get several packages, Elderly works out to be really cheap. But if you need something a bit harder to find (say, Orcas), then Uke Republic is the place to go. Plus Mike at Uke Republic is a cool guy and is very fair & helpful.
    I got my wife, my dogs, and my Kanile'a. What else would I need?

    See the FYI - Uke Strings thread, there's a Where To Buy section with links.

    pa`a ka waha.

    Observe with the eyes; listen with the ears; shut the mouth.
    Thus one learns.

    I use Just Strings.com, but they don't have all the brands of uke strings. For instance, they don't carry Worths. But I like them because they have single classical guitar strings I use on my tenor, plus uke strings and tiple strings.

    Uke can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find uke get what you need!

    I used to buy Worths from MGM on ebay.

    Their shipping on a single set is pretty high, but you can get free shipping on most orders over $49. I'll probably do a stock-up order on Worths at some point to get the free shipping.
