Hey guys, I was playing a beautiful old French bass today (only $45,000 too - what a bargain!), and came across a string that sounded really good. I couldn't find it on Quinn's ID thing, so I thought I'd ask for the collective wisdom of the group. They were black (or VERY dark blue) on the ball end, with a red ring at the end of the silk. On the pegbox end they were the same black with a different color ring to (I'd guess) identify the string. Anyone have any idea what they were? Your help is much appreciated.
