specific about short scale flatwound strings: lime green wrappings
first of all, i'm knew to this forum thing, so hello to everyone! Recently I got hold of a used hofner beatle bass. It came with flatwound strings and I simply loved them. I haven't been able to find out what brand they are, so i wondered if anyone could help me out: they are of course short scale, sort of mid tension and have lime green silk wrappings on both ends. They have little to no brightness and a thumpy sound i guess. Compared to TI flats, very different in sound and feel (i found that TIs are sort of "sticky").
Can anyone help me out here? i've searched everywhere and haven't been able to find out.
