String buying time follow-up

Tuesday, June 24, 2008

Well - in the last post entry i was telling about the many strings I had to buy.

Turned out it was pretty quick - the music shop had almost every gauge I needed (just a couple minor adjustments, as .23 or .25 instead of .24)
Plus - the guy gave me a reduce -  the total was 42€ I think , I paid 35€.

I realize now that I bought 2 sets of strings each for my banjo, my dulcimer, and my guitar, and even if it takes a bit of time, it still costs me less than 1 set of electric bass strings...
All in all, life as a folky musician ain't that bad!

Cheers! 1 comment
