    I "inherited" a sealed set of D'Addario Helicore solo series strings for AEBF# tuning.
    I play GDAE.
    Can I just tune these down 2 half notes and use them?
  2. I wouldn't recommend it. You might get away with it with some solo strings but I find the helicores on the thin side, even for solo strings. I don't think you'd get any power and projection from them
