helicore 'a' string

Tuesday, September 8, 2009

For a few years now, I've been using helicore strings, and my experience has been that the "A" string has a tendency to ( and I'll use  the term "unravel") in the vicinity of C# - D. I practice almost daily sometimes. as much as 2 hours...and the defect occurs in a period of about 6 to 8 weeks...No problem with the G , D, or E strings....Has anyone using these identical strings had a similiar experience, and what do you think it can be attrributed to? Thank you for your replies.
