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.
Sounds Good on my Viola.
I used this rosin on a freshly rehaired bow, and it is a very good rosin. It's a dark rosin but in the light has a bit of a dark olive/jade color. It has good grip but it's not too sticky. Low dust. To echo what other reviewer stated it does wear off after 2 hours of practice. Works well with pirastro strings along with other ones. I've used this with Thomastik and Larsen strings no problems
If you are like me and play violin a lot, but cannot afford the next level of rosin, then this is perfect. It is not too sticky that it is impossible to remove and not too light. It is worth the $8 more and it does wear off after a good practice. I recommend this!
This is my favorite. Most versatile and dependable. Love it.
I use this rosin when I am playing old time and bluegrass music. It grips well but wears off after 1to 2 hours of straight practice. Not too much dust but has a distinct pine smell while playing after fresh application.
