Could anyone venture a guess what these strings are?

A photo of the ball ends might help 👍

The D and G could be labella red silks, but like Breadbin says, need to see the ball end 👍

E = red (smoother than looks!)

A = blue

G = white

D = red

Requires a lot more muscle to play than had hoped, will put some tapes on when I've sussed the winding length.

I’ve got 2 jazzes permanently fitted with D’Addario tapes, great strings

Definitely Rotosound with those ball ends.

What you could do if you like the strings otherwise is get a set of the 110-50 Roto flats and a single Rotosound 0.35 flat, discard the 110 and string the bass 95-35
