$24 a pack strings
If I buy strings that are not in sealed packaging, I store them in either an airtight bin or a ziplock bag. I use mostly GHS and Lowden strings these days so packaging hasn’t been a problem but I can understand them shifting to more environmentally friendly packaging as time goes on.
BTW - the Lowden strings are on the pricey side too but they offer discounts and they last a good long while. Not sure how they compare with Santa Cruz though.

Ah ha. Guess I've had an older set of Santa Cruz strings sitting around for too long.

You think that's expensive, strings direct herein the UK have just started to stock individual D’Addario XS strings at between £5.50 and £7 each. If you wanted to construct your own custom set it would be over £30!!!

I think I'd rather buy 3-4 packs of D'addarios for that $24.

$24 a set? SCGC can come install them for me. Sheesh.

They are expensive but they sound great and they last a long time. That is my experience. I have had no issues with the packaging.
