Aluminium on synthetic core or Chromesteel on steel core.

The Perpetual Cadenza variation is a lower tension string which feels very light under the fingers and requires little effort.

Opinions in the violin world are split when it comes to choosing between A-strings with a metal or those with a synthetic core. Starting with its sound spectrum, this A-string has nothing in common with the traditional steel string. It sounds rounder, more colourful and very voluminous. Pirastro Perpetual provides the largest sound volume and carrying power combined with a precisely focused sound projection.

Pirastro Perpetual Steel-cored A

Pros: First of all, I'm a fiddle-player, not a violinist. Back in the late 70s and the 80s I used to use Thomastik Spirocore exclusively, because Dave Swarbrick used them! The Perpetual Steel-cored A is the first non-synthetic core string I've used for about thirty years. I've been using Peter Infelds for the last five years and love them. Just thought I'd try the Perpetual steel-cored A, silver D and high tension E (0.267mm). I think the steel A particularly offers a slightly brighter tone without being harsh, so may stick with it. Not sure whether the D and E are significantly different, although the E might show slightly more focus.

Cons: None
