: Hi,
: I am interested in D'Addario Heliocore Pizzicato Strings and am trying to determine which ones to try. Are the "Light" strings equivalent in gage/tension/feel to Thomastik Spirocore Light (purple scroll end Weichs)and are the "Med." ones similar to Thom.Spirocore Med.(red at scroll end)??
: Which Heliocore string is blue at the scroll end?
:RE:I've tried both, and it's a compromise. The thomastik weich gauge have less tension than the Helicores, but the D'addarios project better, but IMHO, are
kind of stiff, because of the different core. I thought the arco strings were blue, but I might be confusing them with the Jagers, (Yet another german string).
