I read a rave review of Helicore strings and gave them a try. The sound blew me away. They also survived my apartment temp and humidity shifts. My teacher LOVED them. Finally, I currently play a Fred Gayford carbon fiber five string Strad and it came with Helicore’s. In case you haven’t guessed. I’m totally hooked on these strings. I’d even use them on my Lewis and Clark cello but Luis is very specific about what strings he likes on his cello’s so I stick with his choices. Cello strings are too expensive to experiment with.
- Sound great, last a long time.
- Cons??? Sometimes it?s hard to find heavy weight violin C strings. I guess the demand eats up the supply. The C strings last a long time because the tension doesn?t seem so high. Maybe that makes this Con a Pro. Dunno, but I do know what I like.
