If there's one thing that can frustrate any guitarist, it's a broken string! And the truth is that no matter how advanced the metal alloys become, there will probably never be such a thing as a string that's unbreakable or never wears out. But that doesn't mean there's nothing we can do to help our strings last longer between replacements. A set of string sleeves for your guitar or bass is an easy addition you can make to reduce the risk of untimely breakage, so your strings will last longer on average - good news for any musician! The more often you play, the more you stand to benefit; so if you're a passionate guitarist or bassist, you certainly owe it to yourself to give string sleeves a try.

How do string sleeves for guitar and bass work? Simple: they go into the string pass-throughs in the saddle, adding a little insulation from the metal edge that, in many saddles, has a tendency to wear strings away to the breaking point. They're made of a tough but malleable material (for instance, the Big Bends String Sleeves are PVC), which lets them soak up the punishment so your strings don't have to. Plus, they're durable enough to last through multiple string changes even with the lifespan extension they provide for your strings - so they'll need replacing much less often than the strings themselves.

Plenty of vintage and even modern saddle designs have the sharp angle that can lead to early string breakage, so a set of string sleeves for your guitar or bass is just plain common sense to get the longest possible service life out of your strings. Better yet, knowing that your strings are in good hands can be exactly the reassurance you need to justify splurging on those extra-fancy new strings you've been dying to take for a spin. All in all, these are accessories that should be near the top of any guitarist or bassist's wish list.
