The Helicore Octave Violin set is designed to be played one octave below traditional violin tuning for a new world of tonal and stylistic possibilities.

These strings allow a violin to play in the upper range of the cello, producing a lower tonal spectrum for the instrument. Helicore is often preferred by alternative-style and electric instrument players. Scaled to fit 4/4 size violin only, these medium tension strings are made in the USA and optimized to the needs of a majority of players. The Helicore Octave Violin Setis made with blue and gold spiral silking (ball end) and an additional blue band (peg end). The string set retails for $130.00, with individual strings sold as well, and will be available January 3.
