Pirastro Olive Cello String Set, 4/4 size
PIRASTRO
From Germany, Founded in 1798

It is the quality of our strings and rosin that makes PIRASTRO a well known name standing for reliability and beauty of sound. Many musicians of bowed classical instruments prefer PIRASTRO strings because of the string's ability to modulate and alter the tone. This allows the musician to create an individual sound and to evoke the special sound characteristics of their instrument.

From our beginnings as a small workplace of craftsmen in Offenbach near the Main River, a modern company has evolved, with over 150 employees. Today's production is based on computer-aided machines for precision manufacturing. In former times sheep gut was the sole raw material available, but now state-of-the-art synthetics and various steel and non-steel strands, such as gold, tungsten, silver or titanium are used.

Our research and development technicians work closely together with professional musicians in each stage of the development of our strings. Sophisticated research and development and quality control ensure PIRASTRO strings set an industry standard.

Musicians can choose from the most comprehensive string selection available, which offers gut strings such as Oliv, Eudoxa or Chorda, synthetic strings like Evah Pirazzi, Obligato or Tonica and steel strings such as Permanent, Flexocor or Chromcor.

    Perfect sound...for some cellos.

    I have been using Larsen, Spirocore Tungsten, Evah Pirazzi on my cello for the last 10 years, I briefly used Permanant. I tried a set of Eudoxa's first, I did not care for them on my cello. They are too flexible and therefore they do not have the projection I need. I just put an Oliv G and C on and this is the sound I have always been looking for! They require about 4 days to settle in and stretch out. A sort of blanket warning, they feel VERY different in the hand and require some complex bow speed adjustments to get the equivalent response that a steel string has. As for use of the A and D, I cannot say yet. I am loving the Evah Pirazzi A and D with the Oliv G and C. ... (See Full Review)
