HELIX acoustic guitar strings are the next step forward in guitar strings design and performance. They are the product of their revolutionary Hyper-Elliptic winding process gives you a denser and smoother wrap, resulting in fuller tone, a smoother feel, and extra long sting life. The Hyper-Elliptic winding process provides more winding wraps per unit length of string, without increasing overall string diameter. This gives you more mass, more tone, and more life from your strings. It's a new winding technology, developed and patented by Dean Markley that gives these string their superior performance.
HELIX acoustic guitar strings are available with either 80/20 bronze, or 92/8 phosphor bronze wrap on the wound stings. Hyper-Elliptic winding increases its projection and volume.
