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.

In praise of Pirazzi

Pros: These strings suit my violin and are remarkably quick to settle down after having been fitted. They were a real bargain and included a free E string which was an added bonus.

Cons: There were no cons!

Other: The string set arrived within 24 hours of my order being placed online which I consider to be an impressive level of service. Thank you, You will be hearing from me again when these strings wear out.

Great when working at their best

Pros: When at their best Evah Pirazzi help produce a big powerful, vibrant tone which is perfect for solo work but they also blend in when playing chamber music and playing as a member of an orchestra

Cons: The set can last well on some occasions but can loose their brilliance quite quickly (a couple of weeks on some occassions)

Other: When these strings work to their best they are brilliant. However I and several of my collegues have found the quality of the string it self very variable(the string winding breaking after only a couple of days on many occassions - NOT caused by a fault on the instrument)

Great strings at a great price!

Pros: The strings work very well on my violin and they sound really rich and full bodied.

Cons: They took a while to settle on my violin which means tuning problems, but that is partly to do with my violin as well.

Other: The String Zone were very helpful after the strings didn't arrive, by sending another set very promptly and accepting the extra set when it arrived.

bright sounding strings

Pros: These strings have a very bright sound and have made my violin sound so much better than it did before.

Cons: To get the best sound out of these strings I am finding that I have to play very close to the bridge which I wasn't used to with my old strings.

Good string experience!

Pros: Very simple: good price, quick delivery and highly convenient. The strings are of high quality and really help with my playing!

Cons: Mild surprise to find that the two sets of strings purchased (8 strings in all) were packaged together in the same wrapper. Not really an issue - but I had been used to each string being wrapped separately in the past.
