New string ID reference

Recommended Posts

I have decided to make a new string color ID reference guide.

http://www.shawnboucke.com/string-color-id.html

I need to alter some things already, but I cannot do it until I get home tonight. I plan to make the beads match the actual colors on the peg ends as well. (Ex.I believe all of Pirastro is black). I want to keep this up to date, and extremely accurate. If you have any changes that need to be made, or news ones that I have forgotten please let me know. Pictures would be amazing because I could just match hose specific colors.

Thank you.

There have been attempts to do this before documented here, I'm fairly sure.

 

Actual photos of the string color windings is even more helpful but demanding to collate, I guess?

As you suggest it would be a constant task to keep it current.

Thank you.  That chart is one of the reasons I wanted to create this.  I play with Zyex strings often, and couldn't help but notice that the colors are out of date.  I thought of using actual images of the strings, but getting them, and making it look good on a computer screen instead of jut a bunch of random photos is quite difficult.  Maybe I will change it to that in the future.
