This Gold "Steel Set" swaps synthetic cores for super-flexible chrome steel, hybrid steel/rope, and tungsten. Their innovative cores add extra "give" to the string, for a complex tone quality. Great for advanced soloists (or beginners learning their way). Vast sound depth with no metallic sharpness; enormous power.

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.
I play in a college/community orchestra and study privately with the viola professor. These strings last just fine and I play daily. I always wipe the strings off after EVERY time I play. These strings really feel good in the hand and has complexity of tone. They are very fast and have great dynamic range with out cracking. The only pain in the biutt is needing a loop end and having to remove that damn ball on the A string. That's the only negative. I love these strings!
Wonderful customer service. Fast response times, incredibly helpful all around. I highly recommend!
