Does anyone use D'Addario Helicore strings? And, if so, does the aluminum-wound E string sound better than the plain steel one?
How are they? Are they considerably better than the D'Addario Prelude strings? Responsive without being too stiff? Bright? Metallic? Harsh, even?
I want some strings with more umph than these Preludes, but I don't want them to be so over-the-top that every stray cat within a hundred-mile radius surrounds my house, trying to get in to rape my violin.
As always, any suggestions, advice and other information will be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :)
