    I recently bought a 50s Bjarton (Swedish) upright, the strings are steels with black wrapping with a gold/yellow ring closer to the bridge at the ball end, all black at the head end. They could be pretty old I guess, but they sound great! Does anybody recognize these?
  2. Maybe Corelli 380TX.
    Are you sure they're all black at the peg end?
    These Corellis have a tone color ID ring up there.

    Yes, I didnt see that before! The G string has a golden ring, the D a purple one, I cant see any on A and E though. Thank you for helping me out!

    The E string actually has a blue ring! Is it the Corelli then?
  5. Yep!

    Thanx a lot!
    Are you sure about 380TX too, or just the fact that it is Corelli?
    They are really easy to play! I have a set of Obligatos that I had planned to put on, but now I dont know. Never tried anything else than Thomastik Mittel before...
  7. There are several sets in the Corelli brand, but those are the 380TX, yes.
