: 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?

"Reed" says Thom.Weich has less tension than Heliocore but "Don" says Heliocores have lower tension than the corresponding Thomastik so I checked the specs.
E Thom.Spirocore Weich: 68 66 63 62
" " Med : 75 75 70 66
D'Addario Pizz.Light:64 63 61 58.2 lightest
" " Med: 68 67 66 62 heaviest

Seems pretty simple except when you consider Thom.
solo strings have the following specs.
