OK, This may sound strange. I just bought my first set of DR Jonas Hellborg strings. Did I get a bad set ? These strings have no outer winding on about 1/3 of the string. I first put the E-string ( 100 ) on. The outer wrap went from the ball end to the part of the string that went about 1" over the nut. But to put string into tuner I could only use the inner wrap. Thin nickel center. None of the four strings had outer wrap that would reach any of the tuners. On the G-string ( 40 ) there was a good 10" of inner wrap after the nut. I could only wind strings with inner wrap on tuners. No outer wrap was there for tuners. Is this normal ?
