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: 12/19/2016

Please confirm the Pirastro Obligato Viola A string really have a synthetic core, as your product information indicates. I ask because for the Pirastro Evah Pirazzi you show conflicting information about the Viola A string: The set indicates "Set with chromesteel A", where as the individual A string indicates Aluminum winding and Sythetic core. Which are the correct materials in the E. Pirazzi case?

SHAR Answer:

Hi John! Sorry for the confusion. This Obligato Viola A string has an aluminum winding, steel core and removable ball end. There's two types of Evah Pirazzi Viola A strings available (aluminum and steel). Please view the link for more information. Hope this helps!
