I should get 2 dozen free packs for getting through the small amount of this post I read.
Nobody forced you to read it.
After I realized it was an info commercial I stopped.
So giving other members the details of a great experience with a business equates to an infomercial (the proper term, by the way)? Should we reserve our comments about businesses to bad ones or something?
Sorry man, I was just messin' with ya.
Ah, OK. Fair enough then. I might have caught that if I wasn't feeling like crap fighting a throat infection and cold.
Having been in the military for 25+ years, I have a nationalistic mind set about being/acting Canadian (no, not the "alt-right" kind, just to confirm) so I simply buy all my strings thru my local dealer. He can get all I want/need for my Strat, classical, bouzouki, 12 string, banjo etc... (ditto everything else musical I need). OK, it might cost me a few bucks more but so what: My money stays here, helps keep a few locals gainfully employed - which elevates prosperity/well being of the community as a whole. You should try it. Feels good!
I do prefer to buy my strings locally--but I can't fin the ones I like for my bass--and have even asked at different stores, no success with that.
My local guy wants $3-$4 per pack more than L & M. If I buy 12 packs online I can save around $21 compared to L & M. They don't need my money more than me...
3 pack of D'Addario strings from Amazon is always on my Christmas/Birthday list so I never really have to buy my own strings.
I have something like 11 guitars so I can go through strings.
I understand the impulse, but while you might be helping to keep a handful of retail employees employed, none of the strings you buy are Canadian made.
Since it seems that Vinci strings might be going through some sort of transition at the moment (I received an order the other day, and they included some freebies for me to try, but now their website is down so I have no idea what is going on) I will return to using Rotosound strings once my supply of Vinci strings runs out. Being British, I will be supporting a British company.
