I am looking for all of shas in 1 condensed set (1-6 books) without any commentaries in the back (just the Gemarah, Rashi, Tos.).
Does anybody know where I can buy this and if they ship to the United States?

Oz vehadar makes no-frills 5 and 6 volume sets. My 5 volume set is about 8 inches tall, and each volume is about 2 inches wide.
There are a number of places to get them in the US. They run around $110-130, though you can probably find them cheaper during a sale. The all paperback 20 volume set is $80. You can even purchase them directly from Oz Vehadar in Israel if you're interested, but they aren't any cheaper and you'll spend a fortune on shipping.
Cheapest Oz Vehadar 6 volume set I've found: $105
Talman shas is also a good one - I use my mini set as my "every day" reference. They're cheaper than Oz Vehadar, and typically printed an a thinner and lighter stock of paper. People tend to feel that the printing on the Oz Vehadar is better and "cleaner," but I'm not sure there is much of a difference in the newest printings. They tend to run in the $80's before shipping.
