Pirastro Obligato Violin Strings

Warm and rich with overtones. Quick, easy response. Excellent tuning stability. Obligato strings are a warmer, less brilliant version of the Evah Pirazzi set. Obligatos are darker and have a smaller dynamic range, but possess the same fine quality of sound.

Set Includes . . .

  • Choice of Gold-Plated Chrome Steel or "Steel" Tin-Plated Carbon Steel E (Loop or Ball)
  • Synthetic/Aluminum-Wound A
  • Synthetic/Silver-Wound D
  • Synthetic/Silver-Wound G

Alternate String Options

The recommended gold-plated E that comes with the Obligato set produces a warm, rich tone. The alternate silvery steel E is brighter and more resistant to whistling. But, we recommend the gold E for most players, because we feel it is integral to the dark, mellow character of the Obligato set. For players who desire more brilliance, we recommend trying Evah Pirazzi.

Incredible richness and clarity July 25, 2017
Reviewer: Noah Jacobs from Candia, NH United States  
These strings were the perfect compliment to my fiddle. I have never used strings as rich and warm as these, and they gave the perfect sound for Irish trad. In addition, they are as responsive and percussive as steel strings when it comes to cuts and rolls, making them the ultimate all around string I have used so far.

Great strings January 21, 2016
Reviewer: Rita Will from PATASKALA, OH United States  
Great strings.  This was the first time I tried the Obligato strings.  They didn't take long to finish stretching and hold their tuning.  They sound great.
