D'Addario Helicore cello strings have a small diameter and are made on a braided wire core. They offer a warm, rich sound that's remarkably similar to gut or synthetic core strings. Unlike gut, however, their all-metal construction renders them impervious to fluctuations in humidity and temperature. Helicore strings have a multi-strand high-carbon steel core that produces flexible response and range. The core is overlaid with exotic alloy windings that provide extremely quick bow response and outstanding projection. The end result is a versatile string with very long playing life that is extremely stable under all playing conditions. These cello strings offer the musician an even, focused sound with warmth and projection. Helicore cello strings are popular with many musicians for their quick response and articulation.
