D’Addario Helicore Hybrid Double Bass Strings are constructed of a multi-strand steel core that provides ease and excellent tone quality as well as superb pizzicato sustain. With the help of DAddario Musician’s Advisory Board members, D’Addario designed several Helicore double bass string varieties, including the Helicore Hybrid (HH Series). These D’Addario Helicore Hybrid Double Bass Strings are made for the bassist who plays a broad range of musical styles. All D’Addario strings are designed, engineered, and manufactured in the USA.
Helicore Hybrid Double Bass Strings are available in three gauges, which allows for good performance across many playing styles.
- Light Tension: allows for easier bow response
- Medium Tension: optimized for a majority of players
- Heavy Tension: allows for greater projection and volume potential
Gary’s Thoughts: Medium tension is recommended for most players, but if you are unsure which tension is for you, please contact us.
- Perfect for a bassist who plays many styles
- Good value for a hybrid set
- Great pizzicato sustain
- Responsive under the bow
