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.

Using a loop end E? The use of a protector to prevent the tuner hook breaking the string is essential with loop end E strings. We cannot accept claims for strings broken by the adjuster hook. Click here to purchase this item.

Perfect for any player.
3 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: Pirastro Evah Pirazzi Violin Strings are perfectly suited to a brighter sounding instrument. They give a very clear and precise sound and they are specifically brilliant for faster styles of playing especially within traditional music. Pirastro Evah Pirazzi Violin Strings deliver a warm but bright tone and wether you are playing quietly or loudly the sound produced is incredibly clear. And, if you give it some beans, the strigs produce a frankly rediculous degree of volume on many violins. I would thouroghly recommend these strings to anyone.

Cons: Pirastro Evah Pirazzi Violin Strings do sometimes take a while to settle in properly.

Pros: Good, deep sounding strings, also sound well together. A big improvement from the Obligato strings I've used for several years.

Cons: E-string seems to deteriorate rapidly, with loss of sound quality as an effect. Fortunately not too expensive, so changing E's frequently comes at not great cost.

So far, very good with excellent delivery service.
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: A 2 week settling in period is important - these strings change over this time. Compared with the previous Pirastro Eudoxa, these strings stay in tune brilliantly. They are brighter in tone than the Eudoxas - possibly excessively so on an open string but I find them to be generally a significant improvement. Anyone with a very 2bright" violin may find medium tone excessive. Bowing near the heel is easier as these strings "speak" more easily.

Cons: Price, obviously. I don't know how long these strings will last or how long their present tonal qualities will remain over a period of use - we shall see. Eudoxas tend to have a short life if you play a lot.

Other: Excellent service from stringzone - thanks.

Brilliant
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Instantly brought out the complex harmonic content that I know the instrument is capable of producing, yet without having to work the strings up to it.

Cons: Little to dislike given the price: maybe shipping in a tube would be preferable?

Evah Pirazzi violin strings
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Well, a semi-professional! These strings are the only ones that work with my violin, and believe me I've tried the rest. The sound is rich, clear, solid, and with plenty of oomph but not the brassiness of solo strings. Highly recommended.

Cons: They are expensive, and you have to be very careful not to yank at them when doing quick tuning or they go out of tune very quickly. By being careful, I've managed to keep my last set going for over a year.
