My favorite string from the first minute I tried them
December 24, 2020
Some people seem to have a prejudice against the idea of a string with wire in it but these strings are the exception to whatever rule say wire sounds wirery. These are very warm sounding strings. For years I used synthetic core strings because in my apartment gut strings broke nightly due to humidity shifts. Humid nights and baking days with the sun shining on my walls and windows.

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.
ProsSound great, last a long time.
ConsCons??? 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.

Helicore

"Helicore strings are crafted with a multi-strand twisted steel core and wound with exotic metals like titanium (used here for the first time in bowed instrument strings). These innovative materials have enabled us to design strings with a very small diameter to provided extremely quick bow response. The application of damping resins under selected windings gives the Helicores a warm, rich sound, quite unlike steel strings of the past. The strings are subtle under the ear, yet carry great projection in large concert halls. Helicores stay in tune especially well due to their cores, and retain a very long playing life. They are available in complete sets or individually for violin, viola, cello and bass."
