    Just curious what string brands have the silk/material wrap around the ball end of the string. I'm looking for standard round wound strings -10-46.

    Pyramids, and I think the Thomasik-Infields do as well. Probably more, but I know those two.

    T-I don't on their regular strings. They do on the flats I believe.

    Reason I ask is I want to use them on a trapeze equipped 335 to cut a little of the odd sympathetic vibration that sometimes happens. Maybe I'll just use some shrink tubing. Hmmm.

    On the T-I's I was thinking of the Blues Sliders. The Pyramids (green label) definitely use silk though, and they are great strings.

    Ah, ok. I haven't tried those. Thanks.
