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.

Question by:

  • Novi, MI

Asked On: 09/15/2021

Hi I need to replace strings for my daughter's full size violin. My daughter's instructor gave me an empty string envelop and told me to put the same string to my daughter's. The envelop says PIRASTRO OBLIGATO VIOLIN D STRING MEDIUM, Art-Nr.4118, 696D M. Do you have the string in stock? If yes, can I drop the violin so you can replace the strings? How much should I expect the time and cost? Thank you.

SHAR Answer:

Hi Brandon, yes we do have that string in stock. If you bring your daughter's violin into our showroom during our regular hours, we'd be happy to change the string out for you. We are open Tuesday-Friday 12p - 6p and Saturday 12p - 5p.

Are the individual strings ball end?

SHAR Answer:

Hi Lydia! This string does come with a ball end. Most steel or synthetic core A, D, and G violin strings come with ball ends across all manufacturers. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
