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 Scaled to fit 4/4 size violin with a playing length of 13 inches (328mm), these medium tension strings are optimized to the needs of a majority of players. The E string included with the H310 set is a plain steel E (tin-plated high-carbon steel) with no winding. Packaged in uniquely-designed sealed pouches providing unparalleled protection from the elements that cause corrosion.
