D'Addario Octave Helicore Strings
The Helicore Octave Violin set is designed to be played one octave below traditional tuning for a new world of tonal and stylistic possibilities. It utilizes the same core technologies as the original violin set for quick bow response, comfortable playability, and clear sound.
NOTE: Please follow these guidelines for installation: Check that the grooves in your bridge and nut have room to accommodate the larger diameter of the octave strings. A too narrow groove could pinch the string and cause it to break. Excessive pressure or pinching may prevent normal movement. For best results, thoroughly apply graphite (pencil lead) to grooves before installing each string.
