About This Item

Evah Pirazzi Gold Viola Strings

New from Pirastro, the Viola Evah Pirazzi GOLD set. This set is an important addition to Pirastro’s family of synthetic material viola strings. They feature a brilliant and golden tone, full-bodied and big sound, and instant response.

These strings are for professionals, providing an elegant, golden tone yet they can withstand a powerful bow arm without “choking” the instrument. The freedom of the sound development is astonishing. The playability was further improved and is now even a little easier than with Evah Pirazzi and Obligato.

The new innovative steel core A-string is the warmest in Pirastro’s product range and blends well with all other D-, G- and C-strings, especially with Evah Pirazzi, Obligato and Passione. A great match to every set and with its warm and powerful sound the transition to the D-string is smooth and unique!

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: 09/05/2021

I'm looking to replace my viola strings with a Pirastro Gold Label Wondertone set. I do not see them on the Shar site. I see them on other sites, but out of stock. Can you tell me what's happening? Are these Evah Pirazzi Gold strings similar? I'm looking for full, warm and bright. Thomastic Dominants might work? Thank you

SHAR Answer:

Hi Amy, thank you for your question. I apologize for the trouble you had finding the Wondertone Gold Label set. We do carry those strings. The set is item number 550S and you have a choice of loop or ball end for the E string.

Do Evah or other synthetic core strings come with ball ends?. My viola has a Wittner tailpiece with built in fine tuners. I would like to try changing from steel core strings, but a afraid there will not be enough room in the tailpiece to use a loop end string

SHAR Answer:

Hello JD! Most D, G, and C viola synthetic and steel core viola strings will come with a ball-end, including these Evah Pirazzi Gold strings. The A string ending can vary from brand to brand, but this set comes with a removable ball end that can act as a loop, if need be. Let us know if you have any other questions!

Asked On: 05/04/2018

Will this set fit a 14 inch viola?

SHAR Answer:

This set is optimized for violas with 14.57 inches (37 cm) between the nut and the bridge, however putting these strings on a 14-inch viola only lowers the string tension, so there is no danger to your instrument or the string and they should play fine. It may be necessary to cut some of string off at the scroll end to prevent there from being too much string wound around the peg.
