PIRASTROFrom 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.
Ratings & Reviews
Dark Toned Strings
I have these strings on both of my violins. They have a darker tone than other strings I've tried (Vision Solo, Evah Pirazzi). I particularly love the sound of the D and G.
Very nice strings at an affordable price
I have had this Wondertone Solo String Set on my violin for about 8 months now and have been so happy with them that I am now re-ordering. I am an adult re-learner and practice 45-60 minutes most days. When I first put them on, it was like I had a new violin.
Great strings yet very affordable
These are my default strings on a few of my orchestral instruments, with many desirable characteristics: pleasant and colorful (e.g., singing E, sweet and mellow A, throaty and dark D & G), yet overall neutral tone; quite affordable, yet long lasting. I have a few spare sets of these strings. In addition, Wondertone Solo, based on my experience, is one of very few sets that would sound consistently nice on different instruments, both bright and dark ones. While might not be the most popular, they are the most practical for all events, except solo in a big hall.
Wonderful tone with Wondertone!
I love these strings! They are a great match for my violin and bow.
