|Helicore has long been recognized as one of the most versatile stranded-steel core string line available. Used by professionals and students alike, the Helicore line is available for violin, viola, cello and bass, and provides a clear, focused tone, incredibly quick bow response, and very short settling time. Because of its easy playability, Helicore is often preferred by alternative-style and electric instrument players.
The Helicore Fourths-Tuning Cello Set is designed to be tuned in bass tuning (E, A, D, G – low to high). This tuning pattern allows for a whole world of new chordal and scalar possibilities in alternative cello playing. It also provides a way for bass and guitar players to more quickly adapt to cello by using a familiar tuning. Like other Helicore strings, this is a stranded steel core set, providing quick bow response and short settling time. Tonally,
the set is rich and powerful, providing clarity and balance across the strings.
