A lovely smooth A string
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: I bought the Passione A string with a Warchal A string, to TRY OUT two different brands with my Evah Pirazzi DGC. I felt that I needed a change of A string from Evah A to get more tone. Passione A is lovely, like Eudoxa, it is a thicker string with lots of texture and a warm tone. I really liked it.

Cons: None, but I only had it on my cello for an hour, until I tried out the Warchal A and that was it ! They both did what I wanted on the cello, but Passione felt like I had to work a bit harder to draw out the sound. Warchal was an immediate response.

Other: I have to say that, as an A atring, Passione was a good choice for my cello. It went fantastically well with my Evahs, infact I preferred Passione A to Evah A, Evah was slightly more metallic. Passione was very smooth. Passione and Warchal are two very fine A strings, both with a feel of gut and Eudoxa about them.

2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: Very pleased with this string which I'm trying for the first time. On my cello it produces a warm, clear, round sound with no hard edge, especially in the higher register. Also it required very little playing in and re-tuning once fitted.

Cons: None.

Lives up to its name.

Pros: immediately playable - no playing in period. A warm string - good value. Reasonable value compared with Larsen for a similar sounding string.

Cons: Have not found any thing to criticise.

Other: Don't yet know about the longevity of the string.

Beautiful strings

Pros: Warm & powerful A string - not too bright but lots of depth and overtones. Great with Passione D and Permanent C & G as a set...I find the fifths are always true with Pirastro strings. Break in time is very quick with Passione A & D...they're ready to go as soon as they're put on.

Cons: Nothing

Nice replacement for an A that became shrill.
0 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: My old A had suddenly become shrill over a few weeks and a friend recommended this A. No shrillness any more and I like the sound particularly in higher positions.

Cons: None

Not sure
0 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Previously I was using a Pirastro Permanent. By contrast this string has a warm softer sound and is clear and clean (although that maybe because the string I took off was simply worn out.

Cons: I'm not really sure about volume or power in the upper registers. It seems hard to generate a big sound once you are above top C (i.e. the C above middle c)

Other: Contrary to what others have written I found it took a couple of weeks to play in.
