    My used Warwick Corvette has strings on them that I hope someone can identify. The Ball ends are colored. Gold=E, Red=A, Black=D, and the G string ball end is Green. No wrap on top...

    I love the sound of these strings. THey are bright without being clanky. They have great tension also. I want to keep buying them.

    Sounds like D'Addario XL's. If they feel smoother than roundwounds, they could also be D'Addario half-rounds.

    Thanks for the reply.

    They are round wounds.

    Are you sure the are D'Addario XL's? I tried them awhile back and wasn't impressed. Also, I don't remember different colored ball ends.

    Could be the Prism's also? Those have different coloured ball ends.
