Soloist standard. Silver on natural gut.

Professional quality gut core strings. Medium tension only. Various metals wound on natural gut. Steel E.

Set of four strings in medium tension, ball or loop end E. The modern gut cored string. Old sound, modern stability.

These incredible strings are the latest strings from Pirastro designed to combine the best qualities of synthetic cored strings with the traditional gut sound. True gut sound with plenty of volume plus excellent tonal stability. Recommended rosin: Oliv/Evah Pirazzi.

The gut core of Passione strings is manufactured, wound and polished in the traditional way, by hand. The core sound is full, round and warm, with a complex overtone spectrum combining brilliance and clarity and a great power of projection.

Passione strings possess a fascinating diversity of sounds, which allows musicians to alter their tone as desired. Big and powerful sound with very easy response on all levels of the dynamic range Passione strings have a significantly reduced playing in time compared to other traditional gut strings.

Passione Solo strings are designed to produce extra brilliance and power for the soloist. They have a slightly higher tension than medium tension Passione strings.

Brilliant string for the right instrument
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: That's what I already had on the fiddle. They are excellent strings and suit a Richard Duke better than any other I have used. If you have an older instrument they are worth a try - but expensive.

Cons: There is little you can say against the Passione string except that some violins need a less exacting string and they are very expensive.

Other: Strinzone mail order is very prompt. I have used them on a number of occasions.

Best covered gut strings.

Pros: These are the best covered gut strings ever. I have played on Olives for over 20 years but these are superior. Similar, but a warmer and larger tone.

Cons: None
