Buying strings UK
« on: 04 May, 2016, 14:11:47 »
Hey guys,
I'm new here so hello to all that haven't seen my introduction!

I have lost the spare string my Ozora came with and it is now in dire need of restringing. I have looked online for buying strings but most places are abroad, and/or the postage cost works out as double the cost of the strings alone, which without trying to sound too stingy is a bit off putting to me. :'(

Can anyone point me in the direction of a good place to buy from/if you have some strings you would be willing to part with. (Just let me know how much you would want for them!)

Cheers

Generally though, where is good to buy replacement strings from?
Dont practice what you can do, practice what you can't! :)

Was wondering a similar thing. Got some kendamas from sweets and got some silk strings which I really like and would want to put similar strings on other kendamas. But a lot of hassle buying from America tho.

Here is a link to check out

I find the Ozora strings to be the best but like a lot of things it's personal preference.  Im not sure exactly but the Ozora string feels pretty silky to me!
