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.

Hi, just wanted to know what is better for selecting a gauge, medium or thick? Could you please offer some advise? I have a 4/4, professional violin. Thanks

SHAR Answer:

Hello Maria, that is a good question, but the answer depends on the player and the instrument! Medium gauge is usually deemed by the string-maker as the "optimum" tension for any particular brand of strings. However, occasionally a particular string on an instrument will not speak as clearly or powerfully as the others, or a player will desire a louder, more nuanced response from one or more of their strings, so they will choose one or more string to be thick or "heavy" gauge. (Sometimes a light gauge strings will be chosen for the opposite reason, as well.) The violin E string is very often chosen in a thick gauge, which usually denotes a .27-mm steel string as opposed to a .26-mm steel string. That diameter difference is very small, however has a large effect on the tension produced at pitch, and may cause the other strings to respond differently, be it better or worse. If you are unsure about which E-string you will prefer, I would recommend trying both, as E-strings are at least the least expensive of the strings! It is a very enlightening experience as well! Lastly, always make sure that the soundpost, top, and bridge are in good condition and placement before applying a heavier gauge string or set of strings.
