A special winding process gives you a one-of-a-kind tone.

Gauges: .012, .016, .025, .032, .042, .053

The Dean Markley HELIX HD 2082 acoustic guitar strings will give your music a sound like no other. It took over a year and many trials for the Dean Markley team to find just the precise elliptical shape for the winding wire that makes up the patent-pending, Hyper-Elliptical Winding process of the Helix HD. This shape then had to be paired with the correct winding process that would produce these stupendous results-the maximum mass for the guitar string's diameter that still maintained the string's vibrancy.

The Hyper-Elliptical Winding process results in an increased number of wraps along the length of the string. This increases the mass of your acoustic guitar string, without changing its diameter or material.

More mass makes the Dean Markley HELIX HD guitar strings have 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 conventional strings.

When you press and strum a normal wrap wire, your fingers experience resistance as they go down into each depression between the wraps. With the Dean Markley HELIX HD you'll experience smoothness. These less coarse wrappings let your fingers glide more easily and smoothly along the surface of the wrap wire.

Made of 80% copper, and 20% zinc, these strings are made of a true brass alloy-well-balanced and durable for loud, rich sound that is exceptionally long-lasting. Helix HD's unique Hyper-Elliptical Winding process adds more projection and tone than other acoustic guitar strings of the same gauges, and reduces corrosion and finger noise on the surface of the string.

    Dean Markley Helix strings deliver as promised. Smoother feel to the strings make them feel like a lighter gauge. But the sound is what you'll notice first. Bright and full. I've only had these on for about a week, so I can't report on their durability, but if they last as long as other Dean Markley strings I'm sold.

  • Two bad sets?

    As reviewed by Dean Ziegel on 7/9/2012

    I ordered two sets of these strings, and both were less than acceptable. The high e string, especially, as well as ALL the strings, had quite a few places that were missing the coating. They were not smooth at all and I could feel the places where the coating was missing when I moved from chord to chord. The "unique Hyper-Elliptical Winding process" on these sets of strings wasn't there. They should have been inspected at the factory and thrown out because they were defective and shoddy looking. Won't by them again.

  • Same old, Same old

    As reviewed by Bobby Cockerham on 11/7/2011

    This is only my opinion: I have the strings on two acoustics and played each one 3 times a week for at least 2 hours over a 1 month period. Sound: Like every other string out there, when they are new they have a very bright sound. That lasted about two weeks, now the sound no different than some cheap phospherbronze strings that dull and turn dark. Feel: They are not a smooth string and they are not quiet when you slide against the strings. I tried recording and it was very annoying with the squeeks from the strings. Again this is just my opinion.
