I love my string.....but don't know what they are?

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by LuckyScott, May 23, 2018.

  1. Got a great bass for Christmas and absolutely love the strings on it. They sound great.
    Not as rough on my fingers as my rotosound round wound. Sorta of a semi round wound???
    No color on the ends that would give me a hint. and up by the tuners the strings are silver.
    My rotosounds have red thread around the tuners but these are bare metal.

    How do I figure out what they are?

    Was it a new bass? If so, I’m sure the manufacturer knows.
  4. No, it was used
  5. No silk at the tuner end, no color-coded ball ends. Are they all brass-colored? Smoother than rotosound rounds... Are they also more flexible/supple (ie less stiff) than the rotos?

    Looking at the photos, I would guess nickel-plated steel. And possibly DR based on the fairly tight winding. Maybe the Sunbeams?

    Hmm, might have to pick up a set and try them out.
