I would not worry about the underlying aluminium wearing the string windings (aluminium oxide might be another story).  Standard practice of the application of graphite upon string change should be adequate.

In reference to wolf tones, would your experimental area be in cello and double bass?

@ELCBK .  No clue as to material.  I do not own the example.  I suspect it is maple.  The rounded shape on top was unusual to me.
