What is the red stuff on the ends of bass strings for?

Getting thicker wire to behave and stay in one place can be an adventure. If part of the string starts to unwind, it pretty much keeps going (nothing like almost getting a new set of strings on and having the cut end untwist). Guitar strings aren't immune, but it's easier (and more costly) to destroy a set of bass strings, so it makes sense to wrap the ends in string.

:cool:

 

 

Ooooh, I had Trace Elliot Strings on my Washburn 5er......what a coincidence!!! (Never took to 6 stringers.....)

 

I still have a sealed pack of Trace Elliot strings kicking around!!!
