Comments about D'Addario Helicore Violin Set Strings:

These strings are the best I've ever used. I had Dominants before my teacher convinced me to put these strings on. I was very suprised at the wonderful, rich tonal quality that came from the new strings!

      love these strings

      By Jen

      from Maryland

      About Me Experienced

      Comments about D'Addario Helicore Violin Set Strings:

      My fiddle is somewhat dark (read warm sounding) and these strings made it even warmer and richer. I had Dominants on before and they muddied the sound somewhat. The Hellicores broke in within hours. Stay stable in humid, outdoor old-time jams. But for the very best sound on the e string use a Pirastro Gold Label E. A rounder, richer tone than the hellicore E.

          Great strings to learn on, as this gauge seems less susceptible to producing that irritating scratchy sound (unless you want to make it).
