The Helicore Octave Violin Strings by D’Addario are made to be played one octave below traditional violin tuning. When tuned and at a full tension, your violin will have a cello or a baritone violin sound. These strings can expand your playing possibilities with their deep sound.
Helicore Octave strings are metallic and have a medium tension. They produce a clear and warm tone and have a great bow response.
The Helicore Octave strings set for 4/4 violin includes:
- E string: aluminum over steel core
- A string: Silver over steel core
- D string: Tungsten-silver over steel core
- G-string: Tungsten-silver over steel core
Be careful, due to thick width, some adaptations can be necessary on your violin especially regarding your bridge, nut and pegs. Contact us to know more.
