Pirastro Eudoxa is probably the world's best known viola string and has been a staple of many players over the last 60 years. It is a traditional covered gut string. Nowadays these strings appeal mainly to players who value the unique tonal properties and playing feel of a traditional gut cored string and are prepared to accept the need for more regular tuning and their sensitivity to changes in climatic conditions.

We do not recommend the use of fine tuners with these strings as they require more regular tuning than synthetic or metal cored strings. Aluminium on natural gut. The sheep gut core of Eudoxa strings is manufactured, wound and polished in the traditional way, by hand. Well balanced warm tone with a great diversity of sound. Low string tension and a comfortable left hand feeling ideal for orchestra, chamber music and studio takes.


  • Silver on gut-knot end
  • 1PM=0.05mm, e.g. 14PM=0.7mm diameter. Each 1/4 PM increases or decreases tension by 3%

1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: beautiful sound

Cons: the price! but then, they do last for years

Other: I always thought gut strings are not meant to be coiled up but you cheerfully stuff them in an envelope. Please explain? Having said that, I have not yet found a fault due to the folding.

Our reply: Thanksfor your comments. It's perfectly safe to carefully coil gut strings for the purpose of transport. We have been doing this for many years without problems.
