Pros: I think it is fair to say this is the best string I have used. It has power and resonance and speaks more immediately than my other strings and with greater clarity whilst retaining warmth and richness of tone. However, these qualities I have particularly noticed in conjunction with using Salchow light rosin of late. Do not mistake this string for the other make of Eva Pirazzi (green packet), which sounds powerful, but in my view lacks the warmth of the 'Gold' version.
Cons: No cons so far.
75% Happy due to problem with A string
Pros: I love the Evah Pirazzi strings and have had them on my violin for well over a year now. I practise for well over 2 hours a day in all some days more than others and they are by far nicer to the ear than any other set of strings I have tried though I have only tried a few brands. The set has lasted well and still sound good after almost 8 months and though I have a spare set apart from one string (the A string) I have never had to replace any of the strings and they are still ringing beautifully like day 1 and they have stabilized well. It takes about a week or so for the strings to settle in and after that they only need tge odd tweak as they are very good at staying in tune.
Cons: 1. They are expensive especially for students but I will get Evah Pirazzi Gold again 2.The A string seems to last a very short time. I have put 3 A strings on in the past 8 months and while one A string lasted 6 months the second one only lasted a few weeks before its winding began to break and unravel...I find the A string problematic for thst reason and I am currently looking for another option for the A string only that might serve me longer. I havent gound one I like as yet to replace the Evah Pirazzi Gold A string.I contacted the company manufacturing the strings who replaced my damaged A string and said it was finger sweat that caused the problem.

Pros: This would have been the string to complete the Evah Pirazzi set.
Cons: My daughter left it a few months before asking her violin teacher to fit it. It turned out to be a D string in a A string packet. So she has no A string.
Other: I would like to clarify that this is a manufacture issue and no fault of the seller. All the packaging was factory sealed.
