Pirastro Flexocor strings are a long-standing favorite and come in three varieties: Flexocor (maroon winding - this category), ORIGINAL Flexocor (dark purple winding)
, and Flexocor Deluxe (red/white winding)
. Only slightly confusing, and each version is quite different in character. Flexocor (this category) have an extremely clean and beautiful sound on the upper (G and D) strings. On smaller or low-tension basses, the E string can be a little lackluster, but if your bass sounds too wired-up with Original (Purple) Flexocor, this version made be ideal.
