Where to buy piano wire?

I am looking for 1.6 mm 16 SWG piano wire (carbon steel) where can I buy it? Guitar strings are not so stiff.

Tried some hobby shop websites search (yet to find one that works) and still no luck..

Kellets in Liverpool sells it. Or they used to when I lived there 6-7 years ago.

Pretty sure they had .8 up to 2.5 and higher. Sure they used to have a good range of alloy and brass alloy tubing too.

Not sure if you have them down in NSW but up here you get it from the K&S stand at Mr Toys Toyworld. Cheers, Steve

I get mine from these guys: http://www.parkepianostrings.com.au/ It's about $20 for a full roll (about 20m I think - don't quote me) and they're based in Frenches Forest almost just around the corner from where I work. I can totally recommend them. Take cash also otherwise they need to chuck extra 'transaction fee' on it.
