Balanced string gauges and special winding process give you a tone like no other.

Gauges: .010, .013, .017, .026, .036, .046.

Made of nickel-plated steel, Dean Markley HELIX HD electric guitar strings have a general gauge range for the average players needs to give you a balanced sound. However, these are anything but ordinary strings. It took over a year and many trials for the Dean Markley team to find the precise elliptical shape for the winding wire that make 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 electric 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 string, without changing its diameter or material.

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 conventional guitar 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 electric guitar strings you'll experience smoothness. These less coarse wrappings let your fingers glide more easily and smoothly along the surface of the wrap wire.

  • Awsome strings!

    As reviewed by Jim Melton on 10/22/2012

    I tried these strings out when a friend of mine tried these DMs out. I've been using my set of strings for around 2 months and they still sound crystal clear and mine have not corroded at all, must be a humidity issue. I live in Southern Arizona and it's dry as dirt here. I love the sound they put out, great bass response, same with mids and treble! I'm currently using this set on my ESP and the strings brought my guitar to life! With the tight windings, makes it easier on ur fingers and hardly any "slide" noise. Easy to bend, but remain tight and in tune after they strech out. I play heavy metal, which is hard on the strings and like I said, mine are still good, but I need to replace them very soon, will buy more of these!!!

    As reviewed by Louie "Sensei" on 4/27/2010

    Good strings. The winding definitely does feel substantially smoother especially when playing passages up and down the neck. The tone is not too much different from other strings from the manufacturer, still clear good definition with lows, mids and highs. The great thing is that the sustain is higher on these strings that other Dean Markley's and other brands. One of the draw backs is that they don't last very long. I always clean my strings after playing yet I noticed that they corroded rather quickly. The plain strings turned dull and brown as well as the wound strings. This was not TOO bad they still kept their tone pretty good and did not sound dull they just looked "crusty" and old quickly. If these strings were coated they would be top of the line!
