    Default Color of Thomastik Wrapping on Heavy Gauge

    Can you tell me the color of the wrap used on the heavy gauge Thomastik mandolin strings?
    I know that the light gauge is a cream color and that medium is black.
    Thanks.

    Thanks Eric. The reason I ask is that I just got a mandolin strung with Thomastik strings*. The strings are at least two years old (mandolin was stored) and have a medium colored dark blue wrap. My medium gauge TI strings have a black wrap. The old TI strings on my mandolin appear to be (using 4X magnifying glass) heavier than the new TI medium strings. I wonder if the heavy gauge (Stark) changed from a darker blue wrap to green.
    * or maybe these aren't TI strings?
