Because of the nature of the alloy, NPS has a little smoother outside feel. It also has a special kind of "Growl" that some people refer to. Full of tone and a great feel.
Helix NPS Bass features the Hyper Elliptical Windings (compressed from side to side), which gives Helix more Mass and Tone, as well as extended life. This Hyper Elliptical winding is what gives Helix its special feel - a more relaxed feel, with a lot less squeak and sliding noises than normal strings. Made in U.S.A.
