Evah Pirazzi Slap Double Bass Strings

Features

 
  • The Evah Pirazzi Slap set is a unique blend of modern and traditional core materials, combining a plain gut
    G and D with a synthetic core chrome steel wound
    A and E.

  • The tone is dark and rich with great projection which is ideal for slap style but also great for
    old-school pizzicato and baroque arco styles.

  • The tension is low and even across the entire fingerboard.

  • The plain gut G and D of the Evah Pirazzi Slap set are made of sheep gut using new techniques which allow for reduced playing-in-time and increased tuning stability without losing the beauty of the gut sound.

  • The core material of the A and E consists of a new
    synthetic material that we have co-developed with our supplier and which we obtain exclusively.

  • This new core material offers an unmatched wide range of sounds, is absolutely insensitive to temperature and humidity changes, and offers the musician an unparalleled dynamic range.

  • The A and E strings are then precision wound with a finely polished chrome steel flat wire.

  • The design of each individual string has been carefully matched to one another allowing for effortlessly smooth transitions from string to string without any tonal break between the plain gut D and synthetic A.

  • Also available as a complete modern synthetic core set: Providing the same warm and round sound, low string tension, very easy playability with exceptional tuning stability, all at an very attractive price!

The gentle processing of the gut core is key to conserving the ravishing beauty of the gut strings’ sound. At Pirastro we exclusively work with sheep gut and have been developing our expertise in processing gut strings since 1798. Our family formula has been carefully protected over generations within Pirastro’s employees. The plain gut G and D of the Evah Pirazzi Slap set are made using new techniques which allow for reduced playing-in-time and increased tuning stability without losing the beauty of the gut sound.
