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.

    These are great strings

    The Evah Pirazzi are outstanding on my instrument. I've used Dominant sets, and mixed combinations of Dominants with other strings in the past, including Larsen and Jargars, and Spirocores, nd buy far the set of Evah Pirazzi is the best on my instrument. I dont believe I would use any other strings. During a week of playing workshop concerts I was asked by many people if I was using a new viola. The bright, open, clear, sound of these strings is just great on my 16.5 Gottfried Raabs viola. ... (See Full Review)

    Wonderful strings for the advanced player.

    I had been wanting to try Evah Pirazzi strings for a while, so I finally decided to do it. I wanted to review them, so I waited a month or two after they had completely settles and had time o really test them out. I must say, these strings are quite OUTSTANDING. They all are in timbre with one another, and produce a sweet sounding ring in the treble and a deep, dark, bold sounding ring in the bass. While I cannot speak for the viola strings, I must say that if they are like these viola strings, they are awesome as well. These strings can really transform your sound, playing experience, and enjoyment of playing music. These really make your instrument pop. The one drawback is that they are on the more expensive side as apposed to Dominants. However, they are worth the 100$+ price. They really can change your playing and make it a 1000x better. try them if you have been thinking, I don't think you'll be disappointed. These will certainly be recommended to my fellow Violists. ... (See Full Review)
