Helicore Octave Violin String Set, 4/4 Scale, Medium Tension

Helicore violin strings are crafted with a multi-stranded steel core, resulting in optimal playability while producing a clear, warm tone. The smaller string diameter provides quick bow response. Premium quality materials combined with skilled workmanship produces strings known for excellent pitch stability and longevity.

Scaled to fit 4/4 size violin with a playing length of 13 inches (328mm), these medium tension strings are optimized to the needs of a majority of players. The Helicore Octave Violin Set is designed to be played one octave below traditional violin tuning for a new world of tonal and stylistic possibilities. It utilizes the same core technologies as the original Helicore violin set. In order to optimize these strings’ performance and longevity, please follow these guidelines for installation: Ensure that your bridge and nut have ample room to accommodate the larger diameter of the octave strings, especially on the lower strings. Excessive pressure or pinching on the strings may cause them to become stuck, preventing normal movement and stretching. Before installing the strings, use graphite, like pencil lead, to lubricate the grooves at the bridge and nut. Simply run a pencil tip into each slot where the strings pass and ensure the surfaces which touch the strings are coated.
