HELIX, The Nest Step In Electric Guitar Strings
A revolutionary step forward in electric guitar string design and performance.
Dean Markley, HELIX HD electric guitar strings are the next significant advancement in the design of high performance guitar strings. Their new Hyper-Elliptic winding process applies 8% nickel plated steel (NPS) windings so tightly that they greatly increase string density to the maximum, while still maintaining string vibrancy. NPS winding give you the classic, electric guitar tone; but now much more of it. They also feel much smoother than conventional strings, because the wrap is so closely spaced. This not only gives you a smooth surface for low finger noise and lightning speed, it also minimizes the buildup of grit and grime that can deaden you tone. The result is a string that last much longer, and sound and plays well while doing it.
