Evah Pirazzi Gold strings have a synthetic multifilament fibre core. They produce a brilliant, golden tone with a full-bodied and big sound from the very bottom to the top of the register.

The great dynamic range of these strings allows skilled players to explore both the finest nuances of quiet passages and create powerful sonorities when playing close to the finger-board or using a strong bow arm.

Very short break-in time, even shorter than Evah Pirazzi and Obligato, combined with a very high level of tonal stability in all climatic conditions

Gold G-string: This G-string is wound with a pure gold wire. It offers a round and full tone. Silver G-string: very dynamic sound which emphasises a more brilliant tone

NEW Stainless Steel E-string: It has an excellent response and generates a refined and smooth sound right to the very top of the register.

P4193-21 Various covers on multi strand synthetic core. Ball or loop end E. Ball end A, D & G. All strings are medium tension and full size.

Using a loop end E? The use of a protector to prevent the tuner hook breaking the string is essential with loop end E strings. We cannot accept claims for strings broken by the adjuster hook. Click here to purchase this item.

Best strings so far!
21 out of 23 found the following review helpful

Pros: After years of searching for strings that suit my violin and my playing and spending considerable periods on each of Golden Spiral, Eudoxa, Olive, Dominant, Zyex, ordinary Evah Pirazzi, I finally tried a set of Evah Pirazzi 'Gold'. I'm using the gold version of the G string. The sound across the violin is satisfyingly even, warm, responsive and consequently I'm on about my 5th set. Additionally the E string is stainless steel and does not corrode. (I currently live in a basement apartment with some damp issues!). This E string is mellow by comparison to others but I like it very much. All the strings are very stable once played in and in all environments I've played in very rarely shift pitch once tuned. Because deterioration due to age is barely noticeable I tend to change the whole set once I feel they are past their best - this usually coincides with slight wear of the A string at the third position shift. Until violin string technology takes another leap these are the ones for me.

Cons: At the moment, there are no cons whatsoever! Pricey but worth it!

Other: Stringzone jiffy bag keeps strings reasonably damage proof.

Could be good, but whipping need to be sorted.
6 out of 6 found the following review helpful

Pros: A little early to be completely sure, but so far the violin has responded well with good depth of sound to the strings I have been able put on (swee below).

Cons: The whipping on the A string was so large it would not fit through the slot on the tail piece. Not good for an expensive string! Hence the reduced score.

Not for me.
5 out of 5 found the following review helpful

Pros: They are loud and project well.

Cons: Far too hard and harsh for me,it took me about 2 weeks (of teaching and gigging) to bed them in at all.I much prefer the Green Eva's and will be returning to them in the near future.

Worth the extra money
7 out of 9 found the following review helpful

Pros: The 'Gold' strings sing and produce a good clear tone across the violin. On my violin I find that harmonics are much easier to produce and the strings make a less 'gritty' sound when playing at the heel. They settled very quickly and are stable as you would expect from Evah Pirazzi.

Cons: Not at the moment

Other: I have only tried the set with the gold G string and haven't tried the silver G to see if there is much of a difference.

Very classy new string from Pirastro
6 out of 7 found the following review helpful

Pros: These are very classy strings and the E is particularly good. The range and subtlety of the Evah Pirazzi standard range but less nasal and particularly strong G D and E. An initial problem with the A was sorted out by a lightning swap made with characteristic efficiency by the stringzone team. Thanks!

Cons: Too early to tell if they are more durable than the Evah P standard range. Hope so!

An excellent professional string
4 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: These give a bright yet warm sound, perhaps a little more focused that the standard Pirazzi. I opted for the silver version. They have settled to pitch quickly and have played in well. They are perfect in 5ths and are recommended. The length provided is generous. If you are using Wittner/Peghead type of fine adjusting pegs, you will need to remove about 3cm of string when fitting.

Cons: ... only the price!!!!

Beware - the winding is very thick!
6 out of 8 found the following review helpful

Pros: The E string was fine....

Cons: .....but the winding on the G, D and A strings was so thick that there was no way the EP Gold were going to fit in the tailpiece of my violin, although it's just a standard Wittner one with integrated adjusters.
