Special Features

 
The length of colored silk at the peg end of the Passione Solo G-string is different than the length of the A- and D- strings. This has been done intentionally and is part of the construction of the G-string. The special length of the G-string’s color winding at the peg end prevents the string from breaking in the peg box. At the latest after two to three days the stretching process will be finalized. As a result the silk winding will no longer reach over the nut. We have made numerous tests with this special G on various violins all differing in size and the string has always fitted. On some violins it takes longer, with other violins the string even fits from the beginning.

The introduction of the violin string set Passione underlines our conviction that young violinists enthusiastically taken up our patented modern violin gut-core string set. The feedback about Passione emphasizes its tuning stability, its effortless response and its quick playability. Violinists have also confirmed the complexity of sound and wide range of colors.

Now the Passione Solo for violin adds another way to express musical ideas. The range of dynamics has been extended so that  a soloist tone   with   strong   power   and   brilliance is

available. This focus allows musicians an effortless presence in the orchestra and the solo violin develops a noble projection within the orchestra (e.g. violin concerts of Brahms, Tschaikowsky, Sibelius, Bartók or Alban Berg).

 

The violin set Passione Solo captivates with its precious smoothness and effortless response. The set combines a radiating beautiful sound with strong power and brilliance.
