Need help with my D'addario Helicore Strings

    Ok....I have been using D'addario's Helicore Hybrid Medium tension strings on my double bass for a little over a year now.
    And I decided to change my strings the other day.

    My question is....Does anyone know what color the different strings are?For instance, I think it's supposed to be E-green, A-blue, D-yellow, and G-red.Because that's how my last strings were.

    But for some reason, which is a little too long to explain, I'm thinking I might be wrong.I just want to make sure I'm right because I don't want to harm my bass by having the strings on there too tight.

    Thank you
