I don't know if it's the "best" place to get them but then again I don't know of many places that sell 7 string sets. Check with Conklin http://www.conklinguitars.com/accessories.html

Thanks.
Hopefully I can find a place that sells 'em for cheaper, or a place that sells .22 & .27 gauge.
Would anyone happen to know if there's any place that sells those two gauge sizes?
Because that's really all I need...

Just Strings sells singles. But don't know if they have the ones you're looking for.

If you haven't already done so... You may also want to give our resident string guy a shot in the dealers forums.
or try this guy (Dave @ thinman strings) that I have been dealing with for many a year: http://thinmanmusic.com/

good luck on yer journey to find your strings!

Depending on scale length, I use guitar strings for my high C and high F on my 6-strings. Admittedly, my basses are 32" scale, but it is worth checking out if you having trouble locating those high strings. I'm using D'Addario nickel wounds and with .035" and .025" guitar strings for the high two strings. The only trick is I have to string the guitar strings through old bass string balls cut from old strings.
