Pirastro Passione Cello Strings

Passione strings for cello have a very quick response even in the highest positions and easy playability due to the small string diameter. The steel core A and D strings have a precise and clear tone up to the highest register and enormous power. The gut core G and C strings have significantly reduced playing-in-time for gut core strings and create a smooth transition from the D to G. Their diverse spectrum of overtones and full, rounded sound make them the perfect choice for the modern cellist.

Incredible string to complement Obligatos

I've started using Passione D and A strings with my Obligato C and G strings, and the match is stunning. I love the Obligato strings, but the A was just too bright on my cello. Pirastro recommended replacing the A string with their Passione A string, and it fixed everything right up. The D and A both add even more warmth and a kind of aural tenderness to the instrument, and they resonate quite well next to the C and G Obligatos. My current set is now Obligato C and G with Passione D and A strings, and I couldn't be happier. The two Passione strings mellowed out my boisterous cello without taking away presence. There is a slight shift in tone from the Obligato strings to the Passione strings when playing pizzicato, but when bowing, they blend perfectly from string to string. I won't be changing away from this line-up any time soon. These strings are everything they claim to be.
