Evah Pirazzi provide a professional sound
5 out of 6 found the following review helpful

Pros: Beautiful clear rich tone which is even across the strings. Powerful resonant sound with no harshness. Perfect for solo playing or as part of an orchestra. I use Evah Pirazzi on G, D and A strings but a Hill E which works beautifully on an Old English violin.

Cons: Evah Pirazzi never disappoint although would appreciate the strings being not quite so pricey.

Other: The String Zone provide an excellent service every time. Fast and efficient delivery when you need it. Have used them many times and will continue to do so. Would highly recommend them.

Each violin is different: this string suits mine.
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: This string best suits my instrument and playing needs. One cannot recommend a string for another person's instrument or needs.

Cons: The aluminium winding doesn't last long under my sweaty fingers, always starting to unravel in the same place (where the 3rd finger lands in shifting to 3rd position) -- but that's true of all aluminium-covered A strings I've tried..

Other: I think it's rather pointless reviewing a violin string because the right string for one instrument does not suit another. This is especially true when one has usually bought the string to keep in reserve and hasn't even fitted it -- although this replacement is the same as the one I'm currently using..

A very good string, a delight to play on.
3 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: It produced a good mellow sound, quite flattering for my level of playing!

Cons: Not really a con, but you need to be careful when stringing- the silver winding is easily damaged.

Pirazzi is the way!
3 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: Will create a nice mellow tone for folk fiddle, or something a little brighter for classical violin-playing.

Cons: Will disintegrate over time! Not the most long-lasting string available.

Other: Have been using these strings for a while now; not the first time I have bought them. Originally had Pirazzi Strings fitted by a violin-maker as part of my instrument's service and have never looked back. Simply fantastic strings, wouldn't go any other way/recommend anything else.

Worth trying Evah Pirazzi!

Pros: I started with a full set of Obligato violin strings and decided to experiment with an Evah Pirazzi A string as an alternative. They are the same price and a similar composition. I have been extremely impressed with the Evah Pirazzi as it gives me a smoother and, dare I say, a more beautiful sound than the Obligato but has all the other positive features of both strings. I intend to move exclusively to Evah Pirazzi when the opportunity arises. Both types are eminently more practical than the Oliv strings I once had as they lose their tuning too rapidly for the sort of playing I do.

Cons: None
