All the guitar shops in my area have shut down. So Instead of travelling miles to the nearest store every week to get new strings, I now buy mine online and in bulk to save a load of cash.
I used to get my D’Addario electric and acoustic strings locally for £5 a set, but with nowhere left to buy them I got stung £9.50 for one pack in a shop out of town.
I thought enough is enough. Time to get organised, go online and get in a good few packs at much cheaper prices.
I just bought 3 sets of the same strings for £12.50 with no P&P charges. Ordered them on Sunday night with standard free delivery and got them through my front door on Tuesday morning. That’s pretty quick for a free delivery.

In my opinion D’Addario’s are the best. I use them on both my electric and acoustic guitars. Standard EXL 110’s on my electric and EJ26’s on my electro-acoustic.
Expensive, but really nice strings if you want to splash out.
