Pirastro Passione Cello StringsPassione 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.

PIRASTROFrom 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.
Ratings & Reviews
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.
