    I need help trying to identify this set of strings with grey windings!

    It cant be rotosounds(red winding), dr(no winding) or sadowsky blues(blue).

    Could it be sadowsky black label? Any ideas? They seem to last forever after losing their initial zing

    Without seeing a picture, I'd think you're right guessing Sadowsky. Those have grey silks that are pretty close to the color of the strings themselves.

    Fender 8250M's I believe. Standard issue on the Sting Bass with Tapered E for string thru body bridges.

    Dean Markley Blue Steels have grey too I believe.

    That was my guess. However, if that's what they are then Fender is now making them differant. Same packaging, but the taper at the end of the E is differant and they no longer have the grey silk windings.

    Lakland stainless (which are GHS super Steels) have grey silk too.

    Great strings, way better than Boomers.

    Nah, I'd take Boomers over Fender any day.

    But no reason to have to descend to either with so many good strings out there...
