After 2 months and 3 weeks wait, my TI flats have arrived! Can't wait to string up the jazz bass tonight!

To be fair, they arrived at the shop the day before Christmas and the holidays have meant I didn't get the call to say they were in until today :roll: , but it was still 2 months! I hope I don't like them so much, I want to order another set for my other bass :lol:

That's pretty slack and inconsiderate if you ask me. :roll:
I guess you'll be too busy for TM tonight? :wink:

$85. I did check the guitarstuff website after your post, and didn't see any TI strings listed. Do you just email him saying what you want?

Yep, as they're an expensive item, he gets them if for you on demand. Just an email. Mind you I paid $10 more than you for my last set, but they were here in 6 days. I'm not very patient...

I've been using TI Jazz Flats for several years. It does'nt matter if you have to wait a little while to get them, you only have to get them once! :D
BTW: Manawatu TV and Sound in Palmy Nth have a five string set in stock.
Because I've worked in the music industry, retail and wholesale for 17 years, I've had the opportunity to try most all the gear out there. For my tastes, TIs have everything a flat should have and have the advantage of having a stronger and sweeter midrange than other flats. like Jazzbass, I'm hooked for life.

That midrange is certainly where its at, Marty. Doesn't sound all that great at home in the bedroom, but is on the money at a gig.
