    Red is the basic string, yellow the middle of the range and black is the top of the range. I don't like warwick strings personally, find them kinda abrasive. The strigns in the link are a special coated string, the coating is designed to stop dirt and skin and other crap getting into the windings, therefore keeping them fresh. I haven't played Warwick's coated strings so I can't comment on them.

    i find red`s to be uncomfortable and not that great sounding, even new.

    the ones that came with my corvvete fretless are great for fretless sound and comfortable, i assume they are yellow`s or black`s

    Red and Black are stainless, yellow are nickel.
    The Black strings are wath the warwick company usually mount on their basses.
    Anyway...the Red are ****. :meh:
  4. I just bought a Warwick.. the strings that are on it are crap in my opinion.. but I will use them till I wear them out then get DR LowRiders.
