Special Features

 

The core material of all four string lines, Evah Pirazzi Gold, Evah Pirazzi, Obligato and Violino consists of a new synthetic material that we have co-developed with our supplier and which we obtain exclusively.

We are convinced that this new core material is superior to other synthetic materials and steel, because:

  • it offers an unmatched wide range of sounds,

  • absolutely insensitive to variations in temperature and humidity, and

  • it offers musicians an unknown dynamic range.

In combination with our newest production techniques we are now able to offer a new family of strings, which offer:

  • a complex tone, rich with overtones;

  • bring out finest nuances in pp and great depth in ff;

  • great playability;

  • outstanding response and

  • outstanding tuning stability

  • which can be used in any environment no matter the degree of humidity or changes of temperature.
