    Hey guys i need an identification on these strings. I got them when they came with my Ibanez Gio bass. Only 3 strings had these red ends and the E had no red and was pretty much warn out and dead so i had to put new Ernie ball strings on them.

    Can anyone identify these strings? I like the sound of them alot.

    Yes i need to clean my bridge. I keep forgetting. Once you have two basses i kinda forget about it sometimes. And also i've browsed around here with no account so i'm glad i finally got one to join in on the forum. And sorry this is the generic what strings are these thread. I can identify basses but not strings lol.

    Could be Rotosound.

    And the A string is on backwards!

    Were these the stock strings? Because I've never seen strings come with only three silks. Maybe the three with silk are stock, the fourth is something else?

    I would say they are not stock, since they are pictured on a Silvertone bass?

    They came off an Ibanez so maybe they are the ibanez stock strings? But i highly doubt that. They sound too bright to be stock strings. Unless ibanez puts really good strings on for stock (Again doubts). I put them on the silvertone after i got a new set for the Ibanez. Like i said the E was completely dead and the rest had those red silk ones. Maybe the E was the stock and the red ones are something someone put on?

    After looking on the Rotosound site they might be Swing Bass 66.

    Also thanks for pointing that out with the A LOL. When i string i tend to do that on accident if i'm not paying attention.

    Don't look like Rotosound...

    Winding doesn't match up.

    Not sure on this one..

    Probably some chinese made stuff then. My SX came with red silked strings. They sounded great hitting the bottom of the trash can :)
