Overview

Gauges: .011, .015, .024, .032, .042, .052

The Dean Markley HELIX HD 2081 acoustic guitar strings are light top strings that 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 string's diameter that still maintained the guitar 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 guitar string, without changing its diameter or material.

More mass makes give the Dean Markley HELIX HD2081 guitar strings 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 Dean Markley acoustic guitar 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 guitar strings of the same gauges, and reduces corrosion and finger noise on the surface of the string.

Great tone

By JKaramian

from columbus, ohio

I normally go with the blue steel tlt, but I decided to try something different for a change. I have to say that I am very pleased with these strings. These have a nice fat tone in a light gauge. The only gripe I have is that the .011 and .015 don't have the same 'presence' as the others. I may try the 12s next time. Either way, I will definitely put these on a rotation with my regular blue steels.
