Anybody know these strings?

    I just bought a used bass and I really love the strings on it, but the guy I bought it from can't remember the brand.
    They feel really balanced.

    There's no identifying traits I can use . . . the Grommets are
    all brass color, and there are no silks or any color coding.
    They're Round-wounds and appear to be Stainless Steel.

    So I measured them with a guage and they are a slightly
    unusual combination in that they measure:

    E = 100
    A = 85
    D = 65
    G = 45

    Most sets like this have a 105 E string instead of 100.

    I realize this could be a custom set, but he swears it came that way right out of the package.

    Anybody able to tell me what they might be? Thanks in advance -

    Possibly DR,because i have a set with that same gauge,and they do not have any silk at either end. Mine are nickle sunbeams,but they could just as easily be hi beams or low riders,which are SS.

    Sounds like a light gauge set - could be nearly anything. I do wish the makers coded their ends or silks or something like that.
