black string id?
I'm watching an dvd of Ron Carter with Herby Hancock and Billy Cobham. Ron Carter's bass is strung with black strings that sound pretty good (as they would being played by him). Can anyone tell me what they are?

Labella something-or-other, go to gollihur's string pages, I think they're on there.

LaBella Black Nylon. Basically a steel string with a woven black nylon coating. I tried a set on a Kay at Gage's. Not bad, but not many people seem to like them.

LaBella 7710 set indeed.
If you want black strings similar to the LaBellas, I suggest you look at the Presto Jazzicatos instead.
They feel and sound better.

Thank you all.
Not specially looking for a black string myself, was just curious about what Ron was using. I like the fat bottom and the strings are probably a part of that.
