    A few years ago, as I was trying different strings to find the ideal match for a passive Warwick Corvette 5 (J style pups), I had a set of strings on it with yellow/gold silk windings. I really liked these strings, and made a mental note to "go back to the ones with the yellow windings" if I didn't find something better.

    Then I put some flats on for a specific recording project (I normally don't play flats), then put on some LoRiders and just ended up sticking with those.

    I remembered those yellow windings... and tried to remember what brand of strings they were wrapped around. But I failed.

    I've tried a lot of ground and compression windings in my years of playing bass, but I know they're not the Rotosound Solo Bass (green) or the Ken Smith Compressors or Slickrounds (purple) or DA Halfrounds (no silk).

    Any body have any idea what string maker uses a yellow silk?

    I know, not much to go on. Be nice to me, I'm old....

    Yellow Silk strings that I know of:
    Dean Markley Steel
    MTD Nickel
    Fender 7150

    They probably weren't Fenders, because that set is pretty much just for 4 string basses.

    Thanks Jasper. I've never tried any of those though. Hmmm... must be something else.
