    Please help me identify which strings these are on my rental Chinese carved bass.

    Peg end color:

    E - green
    A - Black (not entirely sure it's black - the lighting is not great - it could be purple)
    D - Gold
    G - Red

    They all have about 3/4 " blue on the peg end just before the color meets the metal of the string.

    Ball end color is yellow at the ball for about an inch then it's blue with yellow spirals for about 2 1/2 " then it's yellow for another inch.

    I tried to punch it in various combos into the string identifier page but nothing came up. I guess what I'm calling "yellow" could be gold but to me the color on the D string peg end looks gold and different than the yellow on the ball end. Thanks in advance for your help.

    Yep, and the blue ring tells they're mediums.

    I have the exact same strings. I was also trying the string indentifier and nothing was working.
