It seems everyone here either breaks them very rarely or relatively frequently.

Valtiel, I think the gauge might be just as important as the quality of strings. To all those that have posted regarding how many strings they broke, what gauges and kinds of strings do you all use?

Small music stores do NOT sell individual bass strings. In fact, the biggest music store in my city only started selling individual strings 3-4 years ago.
Some people say to think outside the box.
I say do away with it. You can always stand in its former location if you need to make use of the perspective it gave you, but will benefit from the ability to situate yourself in different loci with ease.
Destroy the box.
