I came across a set of strings that has me baffled. Here's what I can tell you: 1)Synthetic core, clear, almost looks like weed-wacker line. Solid, not woven, and plastic-like. 2)Wrapping is flatwound silver. 3)Ball end silk is blue w/red spiral. No hardware at the "ball end" either. Just a simple knot, with some felt. 4)Pegbox end has four different colors. Yellow, blue, green, and red. (that's in no particular order) They aren't innovations. I checked the quinn violins' string ID chart. No dice.
