Helicore 1/8 Size
Featuring a multi-strand steel core, D’Addario’s 1/8 scaled Helicore strings produce a brilliant yet warm tone. The stranded steel core design provides more flexibility and tonal versatility than solid steel cores. Appropriate for a wide variety of violinists and playing styles, the steel core provides easy bowing response for increased playability. The strings are also unaffected by temperature and humidity changes, allowing tonal retention for an optimal, consistent sound. The 1/8 scaled Helicore strings have a playing length of 9 1/2 inches and are available in a medium gauge, the tension preferred by most violinists. The strings feature high quality metal windings to provide a well-balanced tone. For the 1/8 scaled Helicore strings, the windings include an aluminum A, titanium D and tungsten/silver G. The tin-plated, high carbon steel E string is loop end with no winding. Helicore strings are manufactured in the United States and are held to D’Addario’s stringent quality standards.
