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!

Nice strings

Good core sound/projection while still having a dark sound

I hate them

After reading a bunch of reviews and scrutinizing the strings graph, I decided to try the Golds. I had been using the regular Evah Pirazzis for a while and they were ok, but I wanted something that would speak more clearly on fast passages. On my very old, small, German viola, the Golds are just awful. The lowest dynamic I could manage was a mp and my conductor was not pleased. Pianos were all grit and hiss, and never mind a pianissimo.

In a review on Obligatos someone wrote something like “if you want to hide in the viola section then these are for you.” Well, I’m not looking to hide, but I do want to blend and be able to play every dynamic, so I’m trying those out and so far I like them.

These strings are amazing.

Title says it all: These strings are amazing

First few days are rough...

These strings settle in within a few days and are stellar once they do, but the first few days are rough. Don't plan on performing for three days at minimum after installing.
