About This Item

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.

Question by:

  • RANDY WILSON
  • SPARKS, NV

Asked On: 05/16/2019

How does the string tension compare between the octave and standard strings?

SHAR Answer:

Hello Randy! There is not difference in tension, but the Octave strings are thicker in diameter. You will likely need to adjust your bridge and nut slightly to allow for their girth, but the tension should remain the same as a standard set of Helicore strings. Let us know if you have any other questions!

Asked On: 07/12/2018

Are these tuned same as other strings to 440 G-D-A-E

Hello Steve! The Helicore Octave Violin strings can be tuned like any other violin string set, but they sound an octave lower than a standard violin. I hope this helps!
