Tradition, Redefined for Today's Violinist
When it comes to sound and tonal complexity, there is simply no substitute for gut strings. But break-in time and tuning stability can pose challenges, especially when conditions are demanding. Pirastro, with over two centuries of experience with gut string making, has addressed these challenges, creating the world's first truly modern gut strings. Combining traditional sheep gut with modern materials, Pirastro has created the Passione, a fusion of old and new technologies producing the full, round and warm sound of gut, with the stability and versatility of synthetic strings.

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.
