Evah Pirazzi Platinum E-String for Violin

Our new Platinum-E provides the violinist with an immense abundance of sound colors, an overtone-rich radiance to its large warm core tone, and a wide sound projection.
It exerts a "suggestive force" and "Just listen! This E is undoubtedly the new benchmark!"
The transitions from the A to the E are designed to be effortless without any breaks. This coupled with the perfect response of our Platinum-E helps create an experience of new freedom in the sound design.
The surface of the platinum coating provides the pleasant feeling of stability under the fingers of the left hand, which greatly benefits changes in position and vibrato.
It blends harmoniously with all Pirastro violin strings, from Obligato to Evah Pirazzi and Passione to Evah Pirazzi Gold.

Evah Pirazzi Gold - Viola C Rope Core/Tungsten

Additionally to our viola EVAH PIRAZZI GOLD set we developed a C string made of a high-precision steel rope cable which is wound with a fine tungsten wire. Very powerful and dark sound color with a lot of depth and brilliance. This new C string reacts to the smallest bow strokes and each bow stroke is instantly converted into a very harmonious sound image.
The new steel rope core C of course fits well with the existing EVAH PIRAZZI GOLD strings, but also beautifully harmonizes with other Pirastro viola strings.
