    bassblasters are nickel plated on steel 2 pack set of 4 strings they are pretty good and very cheap.
    fret master i think is - half round.
    sr2000 are taper wrapped.
    the blue steel are only stainless steel, no other options.
    the nickel steel are nickel plated over hex. core steel.
    the NPS as it's name (Nickel Plated Steel) is
    wrapped over round core.

    that's it,
    Enjoy.

    I don't know much about the other Dean Markley strings that you asked about, but I know SR2000s.

    Very bright, very long lasting stainless steel taperwound strings. My string of choice, although I like stainless steel DR Low Riders a lot too.
