    Depends on what you mean by strange, of course. There are plenty of black strings available, at least two brands of red strings, some blue ones, real gold-plated strings, strings wrapped in nylon tape, strings with a silk layer inside, nylon-core strings, cryogenically-treated strings, all kinds of stuff.
  3. Anyone remember those strings in the late eighties that were black and had a different coloured silk winding on each string? Yellow, Red, Blue and Green IIRC. Can't for the life of me remember who made them and what they were called, but it was Dean Markley or someone like that.

    Very nice strings that disappeared from the market,......
