Robert Cauer:  

»I just tried out your new Evah Pirazzi Gold string set for viola. To my amazement these strings are not only a bit stronger than anything I have been using so far but they also improved the quality of the sound on that viola considerably. I usually have to put strings from different brands on the viola to make up for the naturally sharper sound on the A and the duller sound on the C string. There was no need to do this with these new strings. This new set makes some of my violas considerably more sellable. Congratulations and thank you. Robert Cauer«



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

This new string set has the potential both to seduce and inspire the violists. 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.

The Evah Pirazzi GOLD strings allow the violist 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 violist's energy into powerful sonorities.

Such responsiveness means that violist and instrument connect without the slightest delay.

The innovative material used in the A-string of our Evah Pirazzi GOLD offers excellent response and a large, noble, and smooth sound to the very top of the register.
This A-string offers a big deep tone without metallic harshness.
