Black Diamond are the first strings I used back in the 60s when I started.  We used to buy a normal electric set probably "12-56" and move them all down one and throw away the big thick low E and put a looped banjo G string on the high E with a fishing weight or a paper clip.  The first unwound G set was born and everybody was doing it after that.
