Just a quick note to mention that we will no longer be renewing any stock. Previously we had been ordering some items in specially. All stock is up to date and if it is still available on the website it can be purchased and will be sent out within 24 hours.
After more than 4 years, Elite Strings is regretfully closing its 'doors' at the end of 2016. We will begin selling at 30-40% below retail price, and continue to sell each product until we are sold out. As some items are already 30% below RRP, they may drop further (below our wholesale cost price), however if you miss out there will be no more in stock. All warranties still apply & our contact details will remain the same.
Everyone is moving on to greener pastures with the majority of my own time now taken up with running my building design firm (DIMA Design Studio, Geelong) concurrently alongside Elite Strings.
Matt, Elite Strings Founder
Elite Strings will not be in service for the entire month of June. Apologies for the inconvenience, but we'll be back and stocking up again on July 1 2015
We are on holiday between 22 December 2013 and 12 January 2014, no orders will be delivered between these times. We'll recommence on 13 January though with our new strings website, NetStrings.com.au, up and running to allow you to order on your smartphone.
We've now been around for a year and we have a few projects in the pipeline for the immediate future and the year ahead. We will soon have a secondary website with a focus purely on strings, it will make ordering from your phone a breeze. Some new lines are just around the corner as well as some new specials. We'll stock some more popular guitar string brands, while remaining focused on the high end strings which we currently offer. Violin and cello players will soon be accommodated too. We'll stock more ukuleles as well as new instruments here at our original website. Stay tuned and thanks for supporting us.
After a long wait without Shubb Capos from our supplier, they are now back in stock. These are our best selling capos for good reason.
Strings On Wheels deliveries are changing to better suit demand and accomodate new customers. Geelong deliveries will now be every Saturday between 1pm and 6pm. Any orders received by midday on Saturday will be delivered on the same day to the entire Geelong and Bellarine Region!
Strings On Wheels Ballarat will begin during August and deliveries will be every Tuesday between 5pm and 8pm. The cutoff time will be 8pm Monday night.
We will continue to provide special deliveries for ordered ukuleles when they arrive. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
Our server is upgrading their system on Thurs August 1. On this day the site may not be accessible for a short time. Apologies, we hope this will only be a minor inconvenience.
We are now stocking Hannabach strings for classical guitar. These strings are made in Germany by a company which has been around for nearly a century and a half. They are sought after high quality strings which will make any classical guitar sound great. Hannabach are specialists in nylon classical guitar strings. If you own a mid-range to high quality classical guitar you should deifintely consider trying these strings in order get the best sound out of your instrument.
Also added to our range are Thomastik-Infeld Plectrum strings for acoustic guitar. These are soft sounding strings with low tension on the bottom end. They are made of brass coated steel, the wound strings have a silk inlay in combination with a steel core.
Here is a comparison of pros and cons between the two capos. Shubb Deluxe is our number one capo for home and studio use. However, the Kyser Quick Change capo is great for live situations.
We now allow shipping to New Zealand. The cost is $26.55 for ukuleles, and $12.25 flat rate for strings
