    are these Red at the ball end or Blue? It will determine if its a superflexible solo or spiro solo
  3. The 3886 set is indeed Spirocore solo 3/4 set.

  4. Yes I know about the blue and or red silks but this set is sealed brand new so I haven’t checked the ends. I have had these before marked as super flexible on the packet but with red windings at ball end and yellow the other. I had a set like this years ago when I lent a bass to Eugene Wright for a tour. He requested these strings to be played at concert pitch.
    If anyone is serious about the set I can open one just to be sure.
    I have never actually seen a solo super flexible with blue at the end, only regular.
  5. OK thanks I see what you mean with the 3886
    Not sure why but I have had several of these sets labelled super flexible solo but with red ends...
  6. Those are old packagings.
    It says Spirocore at the top anyway.

    I have a NOS set of these in the same packaging. They're Spirocores.
  8. Thanks for the info
    Maybe I should change the title on my listing then? Spiro solo sets list for higher price than super flex anyway ;)

  10. I changed the title. Spirocore is the consensus. Still sealed package.

    I was going to mention to you that the photograph is upside down, then I remembered that you're on the other side of the world from me Down Under ;)
