The Dean Markley HELIX HD 2082 acoustic guitar strings will give your music a sound like no other. It took over a year and many trials for the Dean Markley team to find just the precise elliptical shape for the winding wire that makes up the patent-pending, Hyper-Elliptical Winding process of the Helix HD. This shape then had to be paired with the correct winding process that would produce these stupendous results-the maximum mass for the guitar string's diameter that still maintained the string's vibrancy.

The Hyper-Elliptical Winding process results in an increased number of wraps along the length of the string. This increases the mass of your acoustic guitar string, without changing its diameter or material.

More mass makes the Dean Markley HELIX HD guitar strings have a fuller tone; more windings give a smoother feel as well as a brighter, more resonant tone. This provides a smoothness and performance unrivaled by conventional strings.

When you press and strum a normal wrap wire, your fingers experience resistance as they go down into each depression between the wraps. With the Dean Markley HELIX HD you'll experience smoothness. These less coarse wrappings let your fingers glide more easily and smoothly along the surface of the wrap wire.

Made of 80% copper, and 20% zinc, these strings are made of a true brass alloy-well-balanced and durable for loud, rich sound that is exceptionally long-lasting. Helix HD's unique Hyper-Elliptical Winding process adds more projection and tone than other acoustic guitar strings of the same gauges, and reduces corrosion and finger noise on the surface of the string.

A value-pack of one-of-a-kind tone.

    Heres the skinny on these STRINGS. AWESOME TONE.. THE DO REDUCED FINGERING NOISE... LONG LASTING . I was just going to buy 25 sets of cheap strings , I have, many guitars ... BUT bought these because of their claim to have REDUCED FINGERING NOISE.. and you know what.. they didn't LIE.. I WILL BUY THESE STRINGS AGAIN !!!!! and also because of their sweet TONE ,,, when I sing I find myself singing to the notes .... MY VOCALS HAVE BECOME MUCH STRONGER.. So I will just say ... these STRINGS MAKE ME A BETTER PREFORMER. And that's all you can ask from GUITAR STRINGS !!!!!!!!!!
