I recently bought a set of D'addario XLs, and when I brought them home and took them out of the package, I saw that they had no fabric/string wrapping around the tuner end. On my bass, a standard fender j-bass, I have to insert the tip of the string ito the tuner on the headstock and then wrap it around the knob. I don't want to damage my hardwear by wrapping the exposed metal around the tuner knobs, and I clearly don't know much about the subject, so if someone could please tell me whether I need to buy new strings or if I can just use these, it would be appreciated.
