    Not sure if several string makers use black thread for the tail end of the string (not the ball end), but I really dig the way the strings on my new bass sound with the bass and would like to use these in the future. they have black threading by the tuning peg...what strings have this? they are round wound. any and help is appreciated.

    hmmm....any others?
  5. This is kind of embarrassing... Carvin Nickel strings have black wrap. On the plus side, they are made by LaBella (I think) and are SUPER cheap.

    I still miss my DRs, but I can buy almost four 6-string sets of Carvin strings for what I was paying for one set of DRs.

    I just change my strings a lot more frequently now.
