    Long ago, I had some strings on my bass -- smooth flat windings and very flexible. All I remember about them is that they played great and had light blue silk on the ends. Now I want to try these strings again. Any ideas? My only guess is that they are Thomastic superflexibles. Does anybody have these strings, who could confirm the color of the silk?

    According to the Quinn string ID applet, they are indeed Superflexibles.
    The Jargar mediums also have blue silk at both ends.
    However, while the Superflexibles are bright with good sustain, the Jargars are dark with very little sustain.
