Description

The market leader in professional grade orchestral strings. Set of 4 in medium tension. Choice of steel or gold plated E. 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

E-Goldsteel option: This string is more brilliant and powerful sound than the Silvery Steel E-string. This string has a different sound profile from Oliv and Obligato Goldsteel E-strings.

Really useful being able to buy online when you're

Pros: Very good value for excellent strings. I tried these strings after using Dominant and Pirastro for years and have been converted. They take a little longer to settle than Pirastro, but I find they last longer. Tone is bright which I like.

Cons: Not convinced by the Gold E.

A lovely sound and bargain buy

Pros: It's been great to have been able to purchase these high quality strings at such a good price and it has transformed the sound produced

Cons: The loop gold E string is lovely but I had not realised that it could be vulnerable to snapping at the loop end without purchasing an additional protective gadget - I have since been advised that it shold be OK without this so fingers crossed!

Good strings but take a while to get used to.

Pros: Easy to fit.Feel smooth under the fingers.

Cons: Took a while to settle into good tuning.Tone a bit harder than I expected.

Other: Not sure whether the "medium" was the best choice. I prefer a more mellow sound.
