lol Nope, I'm sticking with the SE ones, made by D'addarrio I think? No need for alternatives, I am personally totally happy with the Stick strings! (But that's just me!)

I am pretty sure Emmett and co are pretty reasonable, unless you burned a cross on his front lawn I bet he'd sell you strings... Give 'em a call, dude! Maybe a new beginning if your bridge is currently in flames?

Best of luck!

Hey Tryn2 Tap,

I think your best bet is to PM Greg Howard directly. He is really receptive to people who have these sorts of problems, and he will be able to tell you which alternate, non-stick strings will best fit your model.

Just send him a PM which explains your situation, and I am sure things will be cleared up in short order.

I have always used SE strings form my 10 and 12 string Stick's but I have used Kalium strings for other instruments and have been very pleased. They have a bunch of options (gauges, length, ball ends) so you will need to assemble your own set.

Every once in a while you will read about long delivery times from Kalium. I have not experienced that but I've read it enough times that I believe it has been a real problem. Hopefully they have overcome that.

I have no problem supporting Stick EnterptiseS but they will no longer sell to me. I am forced to try and find strings elsewhere. I have been having trouble finding anything long enough in the required gauges.

I know I have seen previous threads about strings. Just wondering if anybody found a good workable solution?



They no longer sell to you? They still show up on the website....
