    Hi, I just put some D'addairo 1/2 rounds on my Cort C4Z. The stock strings (rounds) had a nice cloth/thread cover around the string ends where they attach to the tuners. The new ones don't. Do you have to buy strings specifically "with" this or can you get special wrap. Sorry for the newb question.
    Thanks.

    Some strings have the silking and some don't. I'm not sure what the reason is for some using it, maybe to keep the strings from marring the metal on the tuning posts? Either way, I haven't noticed any problems using strings that didn't have it yet.
