D’Addario’s Helicore violin strings, light gauge, provide increased bowing response for optimal, up tempo playability. Often used as light fiddle strings, Helicore light gauge violin strings feature a multi-stranded steel core that produces excellent projection and a warm, rich tone. Although the strings are light gauge, the steel core still provides more than adequate volume, and the warm tone helps even the brightness of the gauge. Helicore strings provide more tonal versatility and flexibility than solid steel core strings. Helicore light gauge strings can also help to balance the tone of darker sounding instruments. The light gauge is available for full scaled violins, and there are a number of high quality winding options to complement a player’s style and an instrument’s natural sound.
