Special Features

 

The core material of the string lines Evah Pirazzi Gold, Evah Pirazzi and Obligato 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
