HELIX HD strings are made with a revolutionary new winding technique,
creating a tighter wrap and more mass, which seals the strings without the
need for coating. This keeps the natural sound of HELIX HD fresh for a long
This is the Revoutionary string that will give your music a sound like no
other. It is more revolutionary than even the Blue Steel strings were when
they were introduced. As a matter of fact, the Helix HD is the most
innovative break-through in string technology since the beginning of
To make the Helix HD, the patent-pending, Hyper-Elliptical Winding
process took over a year of many trials to find just the precise elliptical
shape for the winding wire. This shape then had to be paired with the
correct winding process that would produce these stupendous results—the
maximum mass for the string’s diameter that still maintained the
More mass makes a fuller tone; more windings give a smoother feel as well
a brighter, more resonant tone. This provides a smoothness and performance
unrivaled by any conventional string.
The Hyper-Elliptical Winding process results in an increased number of
wraps along the length of the string. This increases the mass of your
string, without changing its diameter or material.
The graphic to the right demonstrates how there is more mass and a
smoother feel. Imagine your usual string's feel as you press and strum the
normal wrap wire (illustrated in the diagram at the top). Your fingers
experience resistance as they go down into each depression between the
wraps. Now imagine the smoothness while playing the less coarse wrappings
(illustrated in the diagram at the bottom).Your fingers glide more easily
and smoothly along the surface of the wrap wire.

Oh, and one other thing… As a pleasant side effect of this
revolutionaly technology, the strings last much longer—they give your
wallet more mass too.
