Product Description

The Dean Markley Helix HD acoustic guitar strings give your music a sound like no other. The Helix HD strings provide a smoother feel and a brighter, more resonant tone. As a matter of fact, the Helix HD is the most innovative break-through in string technology since the beginning of stringed instruments!

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 string's vibrancy.

More mass makes a fuller tone; more windings give a smoother feel as well as
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.

Imagine your usual string's feel as you press and strum the normal wrap wire. Your fingers experience resistance as they go down into each depression between the wraps. Now imagine the smoothness while playing the less coarse wrappings. Your fingers glide more easily and smoothly along the surface of the wrap wire.

Helix HD -- Enjoy experiencing the most innovative guitar string made... Ever!

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.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "GREAT Strings for a GREAT Price!"
Sound: Always on the lookout for strings that sound great and last a long time. These fit the bill! No more $13-$15 per set. I have 6 guitars, including a Martin, Gibson J45 and a 1974 Guild D25 - and they all sound Great with these strings. And at this price, I can afford to keep them all restrung on a regular basis. Feature: Sound Great! Last a looooong time! What's not to like? Ease of Use: Ok, changed one set you've changed them all. Quality: Again, sound great and last a long time. Value: Less than half the price of the nanowebs ... Manufacturer Support: The best support is to never need it. The Wow Factor: As long as they keep making them this well and the price this low, I will order.
Style of Music: Acoustic

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Try 'em...... you'll like 'em"
Sound: these strings have a very bright sound & will withstand some severe punishment & come back for more. These stings seem to never lose their tone, perfect for just about any genre of music Feature: I think the tighter winding has a lot to do with how bright they sound Ease of Use: takes a couple of good tunings to get 'em stretched right but they're pretty spot on after that. small to price to pay for what you'll get out of them Quality: likes said, they're tough period. after 30 + years of killing some of the best strings in the biz, these suckers haven't gone down without a fight. these strings are truly an undiscovered gem & its a shame because these are high quality strings. what else can I say? Value: great value for the time they'll last Manufacturer Support: never needed it The Wow Factor: as far as the wow factor.......they're strings Overall: I've played for more than 30 years, i have a small collection of some nice guitars. My four main players (all diff tuning) wear these strings. They are bright, & they NEED to be stretched, but once these strings are settled...........they'll take what you can throw at them. These strings sound great, they're inexpensive & they are TOUGH! So like the title says............try 'em you'll like 'em
Style of Music: rock-n-roll is heart & soul, but blues will never escape me

What Our Customers Are Saying About zZounds "zZounds has proven to me that they have the best customer service and support of any online music store. The first amplifier I received was having some issues. Obviously not zZounds' fault. Could have been faulty from the manufacturer or damaged in shipping. Using the expedited return option I had the replacement amp sitting at my door in less than 48 hours after calling them about it. Just in time for a block of studio time I had set up. zZounds seriously came to the rescue and saved the day on this one." - customer on October 28, 2014

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
