The market leader in professional grade orchestral strings. Intense and brilliant sound with the widest possible dynamic range. These strings are best suited to advanced student and professional players and work best on high quality instruments.

Available in three tensions, Evah Pirazzi strings have a core made from a modern synthetic multifilament fibre which contributes to a very intensive and powerful sound. Ideally suited to orchestral and solo playing.

The strings have outstanding playability and exceptional response at any of the dynamic levels, a complex sound, rich with overtones based on a brilliant core sound and enormous projection.

Expressive, with great nuances and enormous dynamic range combined with outstanding tuning stability. These strings are absolutely insensitive to variations in temperature and humidity and are also suitable for electric violins or violins equipped with piezo-pickups

Grade 8+

Evah Pirazzi provide a professional sound
6 out of 8 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.

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.

Each violin is different: this string suits mine.
2 out of 3 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..

One of the best on the market

Pros: Good tone quality and stability. Been using it since it came out. Powerful. One of the best available on the market for solo play.

Cons: May degrade after 2 months of extensive playing. Loses the initial volume a bit after about 2 weeks.

Bright, sweet sounding strings.

Pros: I just started using these strings. (I didn't buy the E because I like a wrapped one.) They settled in quickly, and have remained very stable. The overall sound on my violin is bright and sweet. They have a whole range of overtones which other synthetic strings lack, at least those I have used. There is plenty of volume, and it's possible to get a good dynamic range, as they respond well to light bowing. It's too early to see how well they will wear andmaintain their tone, but I like them so far.

Cons: None

Other: They really are quite bright, and if you catch an adjacent string it's easy to get a 'whistle'. I am finding you have to bow cleanly to keep the sound focussed. Some other strings are more forgiving.

For the price they should be better

Pros: The strings for the first week sounded great..

Cons: After two to three weeks of playing and practice their vitality, responsiveness and resonance died dramatically. I used to use these strings a lot on previous instruments and wanted to give them another go because I'm playing a lot of solo repertoire, but for the price they need to be lasting longer than two weeks. Not sure I would use again.

mixed review
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: good tone in higher positions, settles quickly

Cons: Can sometimes randomly squeak played as an open string and seems to have a thinner tone quality than I remember from many years ago. This is a particular problem with my violin on the E string and the reason that I can't use this make of E stings, however this particular A string started producing this problem too.
