Gold or silver on synthetic core. 4/4 medium tension only.
All strings are ball end, full size, and medium tension unless specified.
Premium G string
Pros: The silver version of this string is very good but I a clear preference for the gold covering.
Cons: Tendency to fray at the ball end.
Other: Intelligent use of nail varnish prevents incipient fraying from developing. Rating is 5 when this tsk is done.
Highly recommend the Eva Pirazzi Gold.
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.
