The Dean Markley HELIX HD acoustic 2083 strings are
medium-gauge 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 Dean Markley Helix HD guitar strings. 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
The Hyper-Elliptical Winding process results in an increased number of wraps along the length of the Dean
Markley acoustic guitar string. This increases the mass of your string, without changing its diameter or material.
mass makes the Dean Markley acoustic 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 acoustic 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.
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 acoustic guitar
strings of the same gauges, and reduces corrosion and finger noise on the surface of the string.
