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.

Evah Pirazzi violin strings
1 out of 1 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.

Pros: They are loud with a vert bright sound. I do appreciate the power and edge, and if you are playing concertos it’s great,

Cons: limited range of colour, I find them inflexible,The high tension requires one to press more, and they don’t blend all that well in ensemble

The Best - IMO

Pros: Luckily I was advised to try Evah's many years ago and have stuck with them. Loud, clear and vibrant they're great for cutting through in performance and bring the best out of any fiddle (and I've had a few, currently on a 1930 German) and just can't be beaten. You get what you pay for, and these deliver! So no grumbles about cost from me.

Sweet and pure.

Pros: I have previously mainly used Dominant and I find the Evah Pirazzi strings give a clearer, almost ringning, tone. They are sweet and pure rather than mellow, but not too thin. During the short time I have used them I like them. The E string stopped loosing tension very quickly, the G has not been too bad, the A and D still loosing a very little, but overal quite acceptable.

Cons: None
