D'Addario Helicore
Viola Strings
Since introduction in the mid 1990's, Helicore have achieved a remarkable acceptance among students and professionals worldwide. The stranded metal core gives quick response due to the thin diameter of the strings. Long Scale is for Violas 16 inches and larger. Medium Scale are for Violas 15-16 inches. Short Scale is for violas under 15 inches. The new Extra Long Scale is for large violas, when the Long Scale does not fit. Ball can be removed from A string to be used as a loop.
