String ID help request

Discussion in 'Strings [DB]' started by carl h., Feb 20, 2014.

  1. I've got a bass with a broken G and I'd like to replace it with the same string but I have no idea what it is. The G has black on both ends.

    They are all black at the tuners. The E is a dark blue, the A is a dark green, the D is a darker red at the tailpiece.

    Anybody have an idea as to what these might be?

    Thanks for reading this.
  2. Not sure about the other three, but the string ID comes up with the A string as a Corelli Rope Core-Nickel Bass A Medium
  3. Thanks, at least I have something to look at now.
  4. I may be wrong, but maybe they are noname strings made in China that come with some new instruments. (Christopher basses maybe?)
  5. That's the conclusion I've come to as well. I'm thinking a red label may be the correct choice for this replacement.
  6. Could also be a good timing to get a whole set of new strings. :)
  7. If it were my own instrument I'd replace them all, but it is a school instrument. Limited budget and all that stuff says go affordable.
  8. A used set of string from the Classified section might not cost an arm and a leg and if you find some Spiros, chances are good that they just have been played in and will still last for a very long time.
