    Hi.
    Just seen this on Bob G's site:
    http://www.gollihurmusic.com/produc...LLY_REDS_90140RR_MED_TENSION_RED_STRINGS.html

    Its written:
    Anyone knows in what way they are different from the originals?

    I know they were working on a new core material, so maybe these are the first sets using it?

    Regards,
    François

    Just the color. I know a few guys using them, and that's the report I got.

    They haven't worked on a new core, they needed to get a new supplier for the core. And current strings are made with this new core (except the Honeys which still have their old core).

    Actually, Christopher (who tried a set for a few months on his gigging bass) reported that the strings were slightly different in feel (he switched from Silver Slaps/SuperSilvers) - the G is actually quite nice. I think he said the gauge was a little thicker, maybe a bit more like the Psycho Slaps, but I'll have to ask him when he gets back (he's on tour in NZ right now).
