Helicore 1/2 Size
Excellent for many different playing styles and instruments, D’Addario’s Helicore violin strings are premium, multi-stranded steel core strings that provide greater flexibility and tonal versatility than solid steel core strings. Featuring a powerful projection and pitch sustain that is associated with steel core strings, Helicore’s multi-stranded steel core design and smaller diameter increase the bowing response speed for optimal playability. The strings provide a warm, clear yet brilliant and well-balanced tone. Helicore strings are impervious to humidity and temperature change ensuring the integrity of the strings’ intonation. The 1/4 scaled Helicore strings have a playing length of 11 1/2 inches, and the strings feature a medium tension to meet the needs of a majority of violinists. Wound with titanium (D string), aluminum (A), and tungsten/nickel (G), the high quality 1/4 scaled Helicore strings provide a focused, homogenous sound. Manufactured in the U.S., Helicore violin string are shipped in corrosion resistant packaging guaranteeing the strings’ condition upon arrival.
