Why do the tail ends look different on my bass strings?

You are here:

The tails on our bass strings are halfwound to better enable the string to wind around the tuning peg and hold tune once it’s there. The process is very similar to how “silked” end strings are made, but we leave off the silk.

The nickel wrap which comes in contact with your tuning peg is a softer metal than the peg, so it won’t scratch or dent your peg.
