D'Addario Helicore Double Bass Strings

Everybody knows that double bass players are different. Of course, we mean this in the nicest possible way: that they're diverse in the types of music they play.

D'Addario salutes this diversity in its Helicore line of double bass strings. It offers four varieties:
  • Solo strings are optimized for orchestral soloist performance, and are tuned to F#, B, E, A (low to high)
  • Orchestral strings offer a warm tone, even balance, and excellent bow response
  • Pizzicato strings provide a brighter tone, maximum sustain, crisp attack, and "growl" for plucking
  • Hybrid strings have a moderately warm tone, good bow response, and excellent sustain and attack, and are good for everything from classical to jazz to bluegrass
All four varieties feature multi-stranded steel cores for flexibility and response. They all offer exceptional pitch stability and last a long time.

For your convenience, we also offer D'Addario Helicore double bass strings as singles. D'Addario strings are made in the USA.
