    Does anyone know who makes the Nickel Strings for Spector? They don't have any silk windings. They do not appear to be GHS or DR to my eyes.

    Well, I just got another set in the mail and they changed vendors. The ball end is bronze instead of platinum in color, there's a taper on the E, and the winding at the peg end is different. Oh, and they don't sound as good. :(

    I guess now I do need to figure out who made the older strings.

    I ordered some SIT and some D'Addario. The strings I don't like are the SIT. The D'Addario are not the right strings either.

    Still looking...
