    Hi:

    i just traded for a used P bass, and wonder what the strings are. Help!!

    They are flats, I believe (they are not roundwounds). They have a blue wrap. The balls at the bridge end of the string are

    E string brass metallic
    A Red
    D Blue
    G green

    Sound familiar to anyone?

    Thanks!

    Chromes. Any time you see colored balls, they're D'Addario for sure.

    Yes, I'm very fond of my Chromes as well.
