The Evolution of Guitar Strings - Helix HD!

Never one to wait for change, Dean Markley has created the innovative Helix HD guitar strings. Helix strings utilize a patent-pending hyper-elliptical winding that gives you enhanced tone, sustain and longevity. This special process increases the number of wraps on the strings which increases the mass of your string, without changing diameter or material. You'll love the smooth feel and increased tone you get from Dean Markley Helix HD electric guitar strings!

Among the artists who have turned to Dean Markley's strings are guitar hero Yngwie Malmsteen, session bass player Will Lee, George Strait and his entire band, Joe Bonamassa, Mike Mushok with Staind, Phoenix with Linkin Park, Orianthi, Metallica, Korn, Fallout Boy, Toby Keith, Misfits, Carl Verheyen, Michael Anthony, Dick Dale, The Edge-U2, Atreyu, Nikki Sixx, Neil Young, Queens of The Stone Age - we could go on and on. If you want to get the most out of your ax, put on a set of Dean Markley Strings and join the club.

My Favorite Strings!

I have been using Dean Markley strings for 38 years, and I love the Helix. I use Floyd Rose whammy bars, and they take a beating without breaking. They left of one famous guitarist who uses them, Alex Lifeson of Rush. I probably bought my first set of them when I was 15 after reading that he uses them, and I liked them so much better than the Ernie Ball strings I was using. They just feel so much better, even with the same thickness as the EB, they just feel more substantial and smoother to play. I have tried EBs on several other occasions, but I prefer the Dean Markleys, hands down. When the Helix HD strings came out, I thought I'd give them a try, and I really like them. (Alex uses the DM Blue Steel sets himself, so I am not entirely swayed by his preferences!) Try a set - I think you'll really like them.
