Collection: Evah Pirazzi Gold Violin Strings

Pirastro Evah Pirazzi Gold Violin Strings

Evah Pirazzi strings have been a top choice for soloists and professional players for years. The one complaint has always been that, on some instruments, they produce a tone that is simply too brilliant - too bright. Evah Pirazzi GOLD strings offer the same nuance and dynamic range that players have loved about Evah Pirazzi, but with a warmer, richer lower register. They yield a warmer, darker tone, without sacrificing any of the power or subtlety of the original set.

Set Includes . . .

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

Gold-Plated vs. Silver-Plated G String

The Gold-Plated G string produces a full-bodied, powerful tone. It enhances the richness and warmth of the entire set. For players looking for a more brilliant sound, the optional Silver-Plated G string brings out a brighter tone quality from the entire set.

Manufacturer's Description

We are glad to introduce a significant addition to our product family of violin strings based on synthetic materials: our new string Evah Pirazzi GOLD.

This new string set has the potential both to seduce and inspire the violinists. On the one hand they enjoy the brilliant golden tone one would normally associate with gut strings; on the other, the tuning stability and extremely short breaking-in period equal the high standard set by our Evah Pirazzi and Obligato strings.

The sound of the Evah Pirazzi GOLD is full-bodied from the very bottom to the top of the register and the design of the individual strings has been so carefully matched to one another allowing for effortlessly smooth transitions from string to string. This gives the strings both a marked presence and clarity and outstanding pedal-like resonance which is the secret of its seductive powers. A violinist who recently tested this set of strings spontaneously decided to use it for a concerto appearance and told us: "One cannot help but feel compelled to listen, the inspiration is enormous."

The Evah Pirazzi GOLD strings allow the violinist to explore the finest nuances of the quietest passages or to play close to the finger-board with confidence. At the same time our strings respond immediately to high bow pressure, translating the violinist's energy into powerful sonorities. Such responsiveness means that violinist and instrument connect without the slightest delay.

We offer two versions of the G string – one wound with gold and one with silver. This flexibility allows the performer to gauge which string will match his or her personal preference as well as that of the instrument. The gold-wound G string gives a round and full tone, while that of the silver wound G string emphasizes brightness, neither material detracting from the rich volume which is the hallmark of this product.

Matching the G string, the D and A strings offer large tone, effortless response, and a projection of sound that is both far-reaching and focused. The innovative material used in the E string of our Evah Pirazzi GOLD offers excellent response and a large, noble, and smooth sound to the very top of the register.
