How much money have you spent by the way. Made a typo.

Probably a bit over 100 right now. I had to buy new sets because I broke one string since the closest shop is this acoustic yamaha show with electric guitar strings and the closest guitar center is over the border.

You spent $100 on one set of strings?

The most expensive set I use doesn't cost more than $10.

I'm too lazy to change my strings.

The most I've spent on a set is $15 for coated strings. I've got probably $200 worth of new strings sitting on the shelf right now. I've got a few more sets in my cases.

I spend £40 a time restringing both my basses.


This...only I have 2 more basses (one with an extra string) and four 6 string guitars, one 7 string guitar two acoustics and a ukulele...I dread to think how much it would cost to restring them all at once

Seriously in 2 and a half years of playing, MAYBE $75. I get the super heavy stes, so they last a lot longer. That and i like old strings.
#20
the most ive spentat once was my last trip when i got 2 sets of ernie balls. $20 for both. plus tax but whatever. i hope you got more than one set for $100.

I think the TS means over your lifetime.

If that were true, my dad's probably spent multiple hundreds. Dude's got 25+ guitars that are in playable condition at all times. Count his anal retentiveness for having multiple sets of backups, Id wager more than $1000 his entire life. Dude is 54, so I think I might have over shot it a bit.
#24
free
ive spent almost 10 grand in one shop, they were able to special order recording gear so when ever i go in there i always get free strings.
#25
all my strings at the moment are free. get in a good band get an endorsment. ***** up lots of strings. leave said band to play in one thats more fun. never pay for strings ever again. i have about 20+ sets of bass strings and 3 basses so they should last a while. i've used countless sets over the last 5 years though. probably only had to pay for the first few i used to have a horrible tendency to break my E string every few weeks

about 6 quid for each set of new strings.

A set of Ernie Ball regular slinkys cost me roughly $12 AUD. I've probably spent $250ish on strings since I started playing.
