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.

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.

Viva Evah !
5 out of 8 found the following review helpful

Pros: These are excellent strings which have a truly clear tone. They "bed in" almost immediately and, once in pitch, keep in tune almost indefinitely. They are hard wearing - I play in two amateur orchestras, a village ensemble and a string quartet. No other strings will do for me.

Cons: I have no criticisms of these fine strtings.

Other: I have been playing violin for sixty years and used Evah Pirazzi strings almost since they were first introduced. Cheaper strings are simply not up to the mark, for me.

Great sound. Great price. Great service.
5 out of 8 found the following review helpful

Pros: Lovely tone: brings the violin alive. Bargain price too!

Cons: None

Other: I've only ever used Dominant strings as this is what the violin came with. One broke in a rehearsal and I borrowd a Eudoxa which I was really pleased with, so I bought a set of Evah Pirazzi at a knock down price. The result is terrific. It's brought out a very different character in the instrument and I think there's a wider palette of tone now.

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?
