Thanks to a special winding process, you'll experience a tone like no other.

Gauges: .09, .011, .016, .024, .032, .042.

Made of nickel-plated steel, Dean Markley HELIX HD electric guitar strings are light strings that will give your guitar 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 make up the patent-pending, Hyper-Elliptical Winding process of the Helix HD guitar strings. This shape then had to be paired with the correct winding process that would produce these stupendous results—the maximum mass for the 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 electric guitar string. This increases the mass of your string, without changing its diameter or material.

More mass makes 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 electric guitar strings you'll experience smoothness. These less coarse wrappings let your fingers glide more easily and smoothly along the surface of the wrap wire.

      Comments about Dean Markley HELIX HD Electric Guitar Strings (LT):

      I tried them and before I could finish streching and setting up my bridge the high E broke. I was very disappointed I used to use Dean Markley back in the 70's I play mostly Rock and expect strings to bend and strech but not the case with these babies.

      These strings are pretty good sounding as well as feel good on your fingers like the blue steel moded by Dean Markley.
      Good tone
      Very good bendable feel along with it's tone.
      Managed to hold up well for me thus far.
