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.

Perpetual - Cadenza and Strong

We extended our violoncello PERPETUAL sets by two more versions of the G and C strings: CADENZA and STRONG.
The violoncello PERPETUAL CADENZA G and C strings, with their pleasant string tension, inspire the player with an even lighter response without a compromise in volume and projection. The tone is pure and clear with brilliance, depth, and power which opens up many possibilities to create new sound colors for the discerning cellist.
The violoncello PERPETUAL STRONG G and C, with an increased string tension, have a very powerful sound with great volume and clarity.
Both new variations offer a wider variety of possibilities to adjust every nuance of the instrument according to the individual requirements and taste.

Perpetual - The Cello String

This new idea laid the foundation for us to make changes to the materials and processing techniques so that the strings acquired a further tonal dimension. This new dimension opens up the instrument to its full tonal colours and grants the musician the technical freedom to fully focus on their play.
Perpetual strings are characterised by great flexibility and an extraordinary tonal spectrum – from a sweet warm tone to sheer endless power, everything is possible. At the same time the tone is focussed and clear, the most delicate touches are instantly audible and the base warmth always present.
