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.
Great strings for violins that have a bright sound, but for warmer violins I would go with the Obligatos.
Pirastro Evah Pirazzi Gold Violin String Set - 4/4 Size - Medium Gauge - Gold Wound G - Steel Ball End E
I can't speak for the whole set, because i used other brands for the A, D, and E, but the silver G string had a crisp bite to it and was really colorful. I've had it on for several months now, and while it's not as impressive as it was when I first put it on, it still sounds pretty good. My instrument has a good lower register though anyways.
When I bought my set of Evah Pirazzi Gold's I had high expectations since they were more expensive than the original Evah's I used before. When I put them on my violin it took a few days for them to break in and warm up. When they did I fell in love with this set. The brightness and projection of the strings is top notch, and very hard to rival. I used the set with the gold wound G string and it did give a rounded warm tone that I did like very much, but didn't love. I look for a darker more mellow sound on my lower register. The E string was smooth as silk and never would squeak when I played music with tricky string crossing. As for the two middle strings, they sounded much the same as the original Evah Pirazzi's and weren't anything too special. They were very warm as well and would sing well on my violin. Overall I was fairly impressed with these strings and the only reason they didn't get a five star is, because everyone's instrument is different and I believe there is no one perfect set of strings. Are they worth trying and the extra money? Of course. As I mentioned everyone's instrument is different and for some these strings can be the Holy Grail, or they can be a stepping stone in finding which set of strings is best for you.
I use set with gold G string . On my violin they sound better than regular Evah Pirazzi . But the best part of the deal is the A string . From regular set it would wear out in two months and from Gold set after almost 9 months of active playing it is still fine . I can't yell anything about E string because I use thicker string , not medium .
