So after 40 years of playing guitar I am now, suddenly and thoroughly, a bass player, no turning back. Which means that my GAS has switched gears, and I am buying basses, taking them apart, putting them back together, and swapping strings. Basses do not typically arrive with the string info, and I now have a collection of strings, some I like, some I dont, and want to be able to delineate which is likely by which maker. For instance, these roundwounds with the red cloth wrapping, top and bottom? These tapered half-rounds with the brass ball ends? These excellent half-rounds (keepers!!) with the black cloth? I looked for a likely thread but didnt find one zactly like this. How about listing likely hits per visual string characteristics? Hah?
