"And I use Dean Markley Helix strings. You know, I only broke one string on tour, which is amazing for me because I’m always breaking strings. They’re just great, I really dig them. I abuse my guitars nightly, and when I want to reach for that note, I’m not scared that I’m going to break a string. They’re really great." Guitarworld.commore
Hello people who are looking for info that's both informative and constructive incite. Good News the guy before me did a perfect job explaining the clearer tones you get from the metal when they are coated or lubed for your protection and pleasure. He also mentioned the longer life and the fact that he can't seem to break one which I liked. But I don't have all that because I sometimes type fast, over 10 wpm but today i'm slow like a 5th grader so i'll keep it simple. Get these Strings because Orianthi uses them.! There you have it- she may have even mentioned the durability of the strings as well. If she's not breaking any during Concerts then I think were all going to be just fine, when I was younger we didn't even have metal strings and i had to make them myself out back with a tool and dye machine over a kiln and big molten pot that's hot n Shit. man i wish there was more space to keep going because there is plenty more on the back of the Elixir bag explaining whats on my mind. thumbs up and keep trying to break those strings guys n gals. I dare you!
