I need a Low B but I can't seem to find anywhere that will sell singles.

Any ideas?

I think I've got one that was fitted to a bass but only used very briefly. I'll have a rummage later...

ha ha!

The seller on Amazon has dropped the price to £14.50... but increased the postage to a tenner. Making it the same price as before.

I have a string that I think is a Thomastik - red silks and slimmed down at the bridge end. Diameter is .128. It was cut and fitted to an SR5 very briefly and then removed after one gig.
