Helicore (Hybrid) Double Bass strings.
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Very nice. As a electric/acoustic doubler and a more pizzicato player, I liked the punch but they were very encouraging with the bow as well. Plus they are competitively priced....

Cons: Maybe they could be offered in different tensions. (They are)

Great upgrade for a beginner
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Upgraded the factory strings of my Stentor Double Bass with these. There's a huge improvement on the sound with both arco and piz... highly recommended!

Cons: they're a bit pricey but considering theyre double bass strings, it could be a lot worse
