D’Addario Solo bass strings are designed for the orchestral solo player. They are tuned A-E-B-F#. They have excellent bow response and even, warm tone across all strings.
D’Addario Helicore strings for double bass are made with a multi-strand steel core and provide a warm tonal quality. Helicore strings come in four versions, including these D’Addario Helicore Solo strings that are made with the orchestral solo player in mind. The Helicore Solo strings are tension-adjusted to be tuned a whole step higher than standard tuning: A-E-B-F#. Damping is optimized for arco use so you get excellent bow response along with the warm tonal quality that is the hallmark of all the double bass strings in D’Addario’s Helicore line. Like other D’Addario strings, the Helicore Solo double bass strings are engineered and made in the United States under rigorous quality controls, so you can count on consistent performance.
