    Hi All,

    I recently picked up a bass that had a set of strings that I'd never seen before:

    They have black ball ends with blue wrap, and at the peghead they have different color wrap on
    each string. Low B has no wrap on top, E has Red wrap, A has Blue, D has Black, and G has Green wrap at the peghead. Nice strings....

    Any help is greatly appreciated. I were told they were D'Addario Prisms, but I ordered a set of Prisms and they don't look the same.

    Aloha, Garey
  2. The E-G is definitly D'addario Slowounds. The SW b-string comes with purple silk and is tapered, so maybe your b-string is a Prism string (Prism's is stainless steel, which is usually appear darker and not so silvery as nickel, so maybe you can check it that way againt the nickel SW's)

    Anyway, the Slowounds are very good strings I think. Warm and punchy.
