The best source I've been able to find for bulk guitar strings is here:

http://www.juststrings.com/classicalnylonguitarbulkstrings.html

Is there a better deal out there?

My local music store is a Guitar Center, and although they've been pretty good to me and I've thrown them a lot of business, they can't seem to order bulk nylon strings. So in the interests of my fledgling program I'm primarily looking for the least expensive way to restring 30 guitars.

The most efficient way to change 30 sets of strings is to get your best students and a pizza together in one room! I'll let my contacts at Guitar Center know.

I buy the d'addario bulk shop.  So cheap when you break it down!

I also buy extra high e strings and g strings as we break those more than any other.

For Classical Strings I buy here. I like the bulk of having lots of the strings that break more often than the others.

BTW I don't cut the strings to fit. I leave the extra winds on the post - that way when they break at the bridge, I can continue using them by cutting it off just past the break, and restringing - sometimes I don't even remove the string just take off a few winds on the peg to give me enough string to tie it off at the bridge. I can get a great deal of "mileage" out of a string.
