Description

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.

Please note. This string does NOT have a ball end and is not suitable for use in a fine tuner. Please ensure this product meets your requirements prior to purchase.


Specifications

Expensive, sound good, but prone to unreliability.

Pros: These strings can sound very good.

Cons: These strings, as well as being expensive, take a long time to settle (several days!), are very sensitive to temperature change (won't stay in tune), and are prone to going false in which event you have no choice but to discard it.

Pros: The Eudoxa D string possesses just the right balance of response and reserve power, and is in my opinion the most reliable for consistent tone production. I have used it professionally for over 30 years.

Cons: A tendency to snap in hot weather

Other: Lovely sweet sound in the high positions
