Doctor John Wound wire strings (15) Wound wire strings 02 Jan 01


Is the only function of winding wire around the lower strings of guitars, mandolins etc to thicken the string and hence lower the note? I find that doing lots of slides causes these windings to wear through over the frets fairly quickly; any solutions please? Dr John
