    I believe those are the 'Golden Slaps' that Innovation makes. I currently use Innovation D and G 'Silver Slaps', and couldnt be happier! Total blast to play on. Good luck!

    Innovation sponsors the forum basschat.co.uk . They have a sub-forum devoted to, of course, Innovation strings. If nobody on this side of the pond knows, you can ask there.

    Daf Lewis might be able to help you. He is active on basschat.co.uk and sometimes also here on talkass.com.

    I too think these might be Golden Slaps, but I only know three of the Innovation sets and not this one.

    There are metal wound jazz and orchestra strings (140H, 140B) and synthetic would strings with black and transparent (and coloured?) outer windings.

    If the strings are rather thick, I guess these are Golden Slaps.
    There is not much but a little bit of information at their homepage http://innovationstrings.co.uk/

    Those are Innovation Golden Slap strings. Very similar construction to the Silver Slap but with a different colour wrap beneath the translucent outer windings.

    Nice strings and easy on the hands! ;)

    Yes, Daf is a great guy. I got to sit in the pit for "Wicked" with him when my family and I were in London this summer.
