    I got a pair of these strings w/ an MIJ jazz bass recently. The seller couldn't remember which string brand they were, but they are definitely stainless steel. He said they might be fender stainless steel strings.. Any confirmation? They sound surprisingly well and I'd like to pickup another pair. Thanks :bassist:

    Fender nickel's have a yellow-ish winding.
    Dean Markley Signature Series NPS does as well. More of a golden tan I think you would call it.

    MTD strings have yellow winding and they are some of the best strings I've ever tried

    Dean Markley SR2000 and Dean Markley Super Round both have yellow/gold silk wraps.
     
  5. GHS shorts as well.

    I'm thinking the same thing.. Mainly because they're stainless steel, and also because fender has yellow windings on their nickel brands (not sure about their stainless)..
