What are these?

They look like them on the silk end, but I don't think so.
Pics of the ball-ends please?
Thanks guys. It will be a few days before I can get ball end pics, but I will get 'em. A friend of mine is trading me these for my old Super Nils. I'm not using them and his bass is a '30's Kay so it needs some low tension strings. Just trying to figure out what they are.
I did a little search and they look like Zyex (by D'Addario).
Except that the peg ends are not D'Addario colours...
Well, the pic seems to have some blue-shift.
Gaston, is the A string black and the G string yellow?
If they were D'Addario, the G should be red and the D yellow, n'est-ce pas?
Not obligatos - those are black and red
You're right Jake, my mistake!
I wonder if these aren't permanents? Looks like there's some color alteration in the photo that makes the yellow look orange, the blue look darker, the black in the pegbox look blue and the brown in the pegbox look yellow.
Well I didn't expect this to be the stumper that it seems to be! Thanks again for everyone's input, but I do not actually have these strings, nor have I seen them in person, so I can't intelligently comment as to color shift. I should have them in hand in a week or two.
These are Corelli Tungsten 370F
Someone traded me these strings once as Obligatos and it took me some time to find out, what they actually were. The tailpiece silks do look like Obligatos, but bright orange instead of dark red. Otherwise they have nothing in common with them [Obligatos].
