Cheapest strings online
I've seen a few of these around, but they all seem to be quite old and I think this is a subject likely to change a lot over time.
What is the cheapest website for buying violin strings online? (barring Amazon and eBay)
I've used violin-strings.com previously, but some aspects of the site are broken and I can't seem to select the strings I want
In Europe I find that TheStringZone in UK is cheapest. And they have very good customer service. We will see how it turns out with customs after Brexit, though......
I think it's worth reading around (as on this forum) to get information on the longest-lasting strings per unit of money you pay for a set. By long-lasting I mean when you hear the tone is starting to go south, even if the string looks and feels ok, as some covered synthetics may well do.
have you tried www.Chinese_Counterfiet_Pirastro_Violin_Strings.com?
I haven't yet, heard good things!
I second The String Zone for the U.K.
I think it varies. I haven't found any one site to be consistently cheaper. So I shop around every time I buy a set online. I usually pay a few bucks more to buy from my local shop, though.

In the US, Concord Music has been the cheapest website I’ve encountered. They also have a great selection IMO.
Lydia, I also try to go to local stores when possible. I ended up ordering from Quinn Violins, which is local for me. I know it’s a little weird to order from a place I could get to in person, but I just don’t have the time.
