The economy is in a state of trouble still and consumers are holding on to those major purchases. But us string players we need to buy occasional items like strings, rosin or get our bows rehair. As a student working part time job I have found it's rather hard to be able to afford to string 2 instruments every 2 to 3 months. Considering it cost $280 for both.
So my question is, what have you done to save some money? Would it be better to just buy cheaper products? Do you negiotate prices with the shop or buy in bulk?
