Tradition, Redefined for Today's Violinist
When it comes to sound and tonal complexity, there is simply no substitute for gut strings. But break-in time and tuning stability can pose challenges, especially when conditions are demanding. Pirastro, with over two centuries of experience with gut string making, has addressed these challenges, creating the world's first truly modern gut strings. Combining traditional sheep gut with modern materials, Pirastro has created the Passione, a fusion of old and new technologies producing the full, round and warm sound of gut, with the stability and versatility of synthetic strings.
