Which strings do I have?

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by Pilgrim, Feb 16, 2008.

  1. About 1.5 years ago I bought two sets of strings to put on two short scale basses. One set was GHS Precision Flatwounds, the other set was Rotosound Jazz Bass 77 flats.

    One set has a purple-colored silk winding at the tuners, the other has a bright blue silk winding at the tuners.

    Problem is, I don't remember which is which - and I like the bright blue ones better.

    Can anyone help me by telling me which color goes with which manufacturer?

  3. Thanks. I may depart from my usual Labella Deep Talkin' flats and try the Roto Jazz Bass 77 strings on the OLP single pickup bass I just bought. OTOH, it's awfully bright and the Labellas might calm it down a bit. But I really like the feel of those Rotos, and now that I know which string they are, there's another set in my future.
