The D’Addario Helicore Orchestral Double Bass E string has a multi-stranded steel core wound with nickel, that produces a warm tone quality with excellent bow response.
The core design makes for strings that are very easy to play under the left hand. Damping is optimized for arco use, but they also work well for pizzicato applications where a very warm, less-sustaining sound is desired. Available as a single string here or as part of a set.
For string identification, please see the D’Addario colour chart
