About This Brand

PIRASTRO

From 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.

Question By:
JENNIFER HAMMOND
From PULLMAN, WA

Asked On: 04/18/2018

Was wondering if this A string has a ball end and why there is not a Chorda G string here. Am looking for my first set of gut strings for a modern violin adapting to play with Baroque musicians.

SHAR Answer:

Hello, Jennifer! All of the Chorda E, A, and D strings do not have a ball, loop, or knot, but they are plain gut at the tailpiece end, which you would have to tie yourself. Pirastro does make both a plain gut and a silver-plated copper wound G-string under the Chorda label, but we have found that most players prefer to use a more modern G-string, such as the Eudoxa, item 206G, a silver-wound gut-core string which we do currently carry in several gauges.
