Evah Pirazzi sound with some Obligato feel
5 out of 5 found the following review helpful

Pros: Lovely large sound, speak readily even in high positions and pianissimo. Mainly settle in quickly, although the D took about a week longer than the G & C. I even like the A which is unusual, and has tempted me away from the Larsen A. I just enjoy playing on these strings - very pleased with them.

Cons: None

Other: I loved the standard Evah Pirazzi sound but the tension was just too much for my viola - high positions or PP on the C string and they were reluctant to speak. Obligatos are good but lack some punch in my opinion. The EP Gold are an excellent blend of the two for my technique and my instrument.

Excellent strings.

Pros: The violist in our quartet uses these so I thought I would try them on my William Castle viola. They give a good strong tone. The sound is even. The C string is particularly good - not at all floppy as some C strings can be. The strings settled in quickly too in fact I performed in a concert only 10 days after putting them on (voice viola and piano). A bit more expensive than some other strings but VERY good value. Will stick with these next time I change strings. Highly recommended.

Cons: There is nothing I don't like about these strings.

Good set except for A string.

Pros: Good warm G and C strings. Nice tone. Good loud initial sound.

Cons: A string was thin so less comfortable and poor quality, seemed like it was too short (too high tension?) for my 16' viola and didn't last long. More expensive set but not much better than the normal version.

Worth the outlay

Pros: A very mellow 'viola' sound.

Cons: The price

Other: A bit of an investment but they certainly make my smallish viola sound more mellow, especially on the C string (which now sounds less "woolly'). Thin and smooth under the fingers.

A great choice of string

Pros: The Evah Pirazzi gold speak easily, with a clear clean tone. I'm very happy with my choice.

Cons: Only a small thing, but I was surprised at how thin the A string is - more like an old fashioned violin E. However the sound and resonance seem fine.

Other: Despatch and delivery were very prompt.

Well worth the investment

Pros: Love these - best C string I have ever found for my instrument (speaks easily and a really mellow sound) and the others are good too.

Cons: Took a while to get them to stay in tune and G string was rather bright for a bit but has settled down now

1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: The best strings I have ever had on my 16.5-inch viola. They take some time to stretch and settle down but when that's done they produce a warm, sonorous, and strong sound. The tonal integration between the strings is remarkable (especially the relationship between the D and the A strings). Unlike some strings these are not overly thick in their diameter - the C-string doesn't feel like a hawser underneath the fingers. The string-set is undeniably expensive but, in my opinion, it's money well spent.

Cons: Nothing that I can identify.

Other: Using Pirastro's Evah Pirazzi Gold resin is not optional.
