    Any specials, or new products, there on the day/s?

    (Think your smaller-sized textured plectrums are great btw - I think there were some in the Leicester/Quad goodie box and I managed to rescue one!)

    There won't be any real specials or deals on, but we'll have some cool stuff going on for sure :)

    I can't remember which ones I sent. Are they black?

    If so it was possibly the Black Ice ones, my favourite too!

    How about standard stuff, like 10-packs of 10-52s, or even larger pack sizes?

    There were some 1.2mm purple Duragrip which turned me on to the blue 1mm which are now my pick of choice. I've also switched to D'addario strings. This isn't some sort of brown nosing I just prefer them now. 
    Nobody is guaranteed tomorrow.....

    Having managed to trial a single Duragrip 1.2 (great concept, just too thick), I am very keen to try some of the lighter/thinner in the range, preferably 0.70's, but would also consider the 0.60's or the 0.88's. Yes, I know it's asking a lot, but D'Addario isn't just about strings, is it?

    And if you are going to bring some strings, please bring (to sell) some EXL110BT 10-46 Balanced Tension strings.

    Thanking you very kindly.

    I'll have some D'addario XL electric sets on a deal - 5 set tin deal - but only in 9-42 and 10-46 at the show - great prices - will have to wait for the show for me to say the price - Will be speaking to D'addario about buying other stock on deals for the show

    Probably Phos Bronze 2 or 3 set tin deal as well

    Sounds like you need to get some  plectrums on the stand too @Adji - but only for people wearing a tFB cap
    ;)

    Actually, my favourite setup is 9-46, but with a 52 on the bottom. Sadly, nobody does them :(

    Hi man,
    Whenever we go to these shows the intention is never to really sell per sé. It is always much more of a marketing activity. That will be even more apparent at this show and shows going forward. Therefore it is highly unlikely we'll have any ten packs at all for sale. To be honest you can always get better deals from our dealers than you can from us.
    The likes of PMT, Fair Deal Music, Mansons, Guitars4You and some others are usually there.

    Brown nosing is perfectly acceptable, even recommended if you want a t-shirt! haha.
    Glad you made the switch man.

    Definitely not just about strings. However, we have to be careful what we present at these shows and how we present it. It is much more powerful to focus on one or two strong messages, than try to get everything out at the same time. I'll see what I can find in my 'freebie pick tin' and bring some along.

    Its because of you I first tried 10-52. I love them on my 6 string Strandberg. We tune to Eb now though which loosens the tension up a bit. Its ALMOST 9-46/52, but obviously it means you are flat tuned.

    Black Ice are the fucking bizbomb - the only thing that ever got me off Jazz III XLs and that's saying something. As soon as I tried a BI I bought a fucking huge bag of them.

    It's true, but I'll say it more often in return for a t-shirt :-) lol

    Haha. Come and introduce yourself at the show (I'm sure you will be adorned with The Fretboard gear) and I'll have one sitting aside for you ;)
