Local Guitar Center. Not too far away from where I live. My strings, Dunlop 10's, are usually on sale. 3 Packs for $10
Where do the signatures go?

I buy mine at a local guitar shop in my town. Usually they're Ernie Ball 10's or 11's for about 79 SWE Kr.
I don't buy mine off the internet, just takes too long.
But I would imagine buying them off the interwebz would be a little cheaper.

My local music store, in a fairly large town in England. D'addario 10's for £4 each.

He has good prices, ships fast and has been a joy to deal with. He did once send me a pack of clarinet reeds instead of strings but he rectified it immediately without any fuss.

That's a brilliant price for a local store!

Seems like a solid find well done!

"i get mine in bulk from strings and beyond. string prices in australia suck"
They do suck my friend, although i'm starting to think i just need to talk to the guys and haggle a bit!

I've been looking into strings and beyond,
But I reckon I may try and start supporting the local businesses more,

If they can haggle a little bit!

Thanks for all the tips guys!

I usually just go and buy them at the closest instrument store around here.
I might begin ordering three-packs from eBay though; they're considerably cheaper. (circa $25 including shipping for three sets when I usually pay about $16 each set)

Local shop. If I get in a guitar-conversation with the manager he cuts the price down to like $3.

In australia I goto my local guitar shop, I only use D'Arrios at$14 , not the cheapest price but doesnt have to travel far to get them.

I buy my strings from local shops. it depends on which shop has what and what i'm looking for at the time, since i use a load of different string sets on a load of different guitars
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
