Flats with black silk winding?

  1. I can't remember what strings I put on my favorite P-bass, and they're getting old after a year of fairly heavy use.

    They're flats, around .45-.105, and have black silk winding at the headstock and none at the bridge, with standard gold/brass ends.

    La Bella 760FS matches both color and dimensions. They wore out in a year!?

    Most flats are just settling in after a year of hard playing.
  4. "Worn Out" is an exaggeration, meant to keep my question short. I tend to break a string after a couple of years on my #1 player, so I wanted to plan ahead. Plus the E is showing some slight intonation "wobble", audible and verifiable with a pedal strobe tuner, a sign of age in my experience.

    760FS is exactly right, thanks! Found a spare set on my shelf that I'd totally forgotten about and that's exactly it. Love these strings, super tight and focused but still warm and round.
