Can anyone ID these strings?

Discussion in 'Strings [DB]' started by Silverface, May 6, 2018.

  1. These were on an Upton "Hawkes" I recently got. I know pretty much zip about upright strings - I played quite a bit years ago but strings were pretty much "whatever is on it" or "sell me some light gage". These seemed pretty stiff to me, but I can only compare them to some weedwackers I bought (obviously not really a comparison!).

    If I can find out what they are I may be able to look up the actual tension. As it stands I'm just guessing.

    Spirocore mittels are red on both ends.

    Looks like Spiro mitts to me. Very nice strings, and very durable. Tension/stiffness is medium-high imo.

    Just to sound like a broken record but those are 100% Spiro mittles/mediums.
