    QUOTE from The Bass Handbook...

    MARTIN HOW OF ROTOSOUND ON JACO PASTORIUS'S STRING COLOURS:
    "Jaco wanted a different colour silk wrap on the end of each string because he felt each string represented a different 'colour'. We did that for him and later adopted the same idea on our Spacer string set as a tribute to Jaco. The colours he went for were blue, red, yellow, and green, and he used our regular 66L sets:.045",.065",.080", and a .105" on the bottom E".

    Rotosound Spacer Strings, from the early 90's. Claimed they were a tribute to Jaco.

    yes, but why are R. Cocco's so much more costly than other strings, I can only find them at around $35. I guess Dario Deidda (incredible bebop chops) and Richard Bona endorses them so there's got to be something to it?

    Actually Richard has happily been playing our Sunbeam Bass strings for a few years now, in a custom gauged set of 40-12o...not sure if he uses some other type as well.
