About This Item

Pirastro Perpetual Soloist Cello Strings

Perpetual strings are characterized by great flexibility and an extraordinary tonal spectrum: from a sweet, warm tone to sheer endless power – everything is possible. The tone is focused and clear, the most delicate touches are instantly audible and the base warmth always present. The natural qualities and timbre of each cello are enhanced by the strings’ great dynamics and intensity.

The Perpetual Soloist offers more brilliance and dynamics. It was designed to have clarity and power on the G and C strings, while being warm on the A and D. The combination of its wonderfully round and full sounding A string with a surprisingly small diameter soloistic D string awards the player with a sound image that has incredible radiance and presence.

About This Brand


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.

Asked On: 03/10/2019

What is the difference between the perpetual soloist string and the Versum soloist strings? I’ve used the Versum and liked them, looking for comparable strings with power and also,subtle tones..

SHAR Answer:

Hello Cynthia! The Perpetual Soloists are said to be a little more flexible in tone and have a sweet, rounded brilliance. The Versum Soloists are very powerful and perform with a full range of tonal color. You might find the Versum Soloists are more suited for an instrument that needs help opening up, while the Perpetual Soloists help round out harsher tones in your instrument. Both would be an ideal choice for any soloist. Let us know if you have any other questions!
