www.JustStrings.com . . . cheapest strings ever? in Electric Guitars Posted November 10, 2006 Originally posted by Carati Just like dishonest Ebay sellers, they make their money on the inflated shipping charges - not the strings. I would pay about 30-40 bucks for 10 set of string if I do it locally (depending on exchange rate), which is not too bad because unlike just strings these are Daddario rather than some just string off brand stuff. Only bad is I can't custom set but I dont gig so I can't justify 7 dozen sets of string, I mean I'd take so long to use that much I'd have to pass it on to my kids! And another problem with bulk string like that if I dont use it fast enough is that they WILL rust before I get to use them all (Taiwan is very humid). I like Daddario because they pack it in those plastic packages so the string wont rust until you take them out. I had a set of Fender strings that rusted out of the package. If the complaint is the string rusting after installing it, rub some fingerboard oil into it before stringing it up and if possible rub it with oil after playing. Like all plain steel strings they will need the oil to prevent rust. Elixirs are not a cure all believe it or not, because only the EAD and G (if wound) is coated, rest of the unwound strings are NOT coated so they will rust just as fast as any other string. Another added benefit of the oil is it will make strings more slick so slides are easier... Dont get too much on, just a light coat is enough.
