PIRASTRO VIOLIN PERPETUAL provides the largest volume and carrying power combined with a precisely focused sound projection within our range of violin strings. Thanks to innovative materials and the adoption of new, carefully matched production methods, the development of PIRASTRO VIOLIN PERPETUAL resulted in a string set with a character not yet found in our product family. The clarity of its sound, however, does not diminish the abundance of colors PERPETUAL offers.



PIRASTRO VIOLIN EVAH PIRAZZI GOLD is a refined and powerful string with a brilliant, golden tone. It offers a full-bodied and big sound from the very bottom to the top of the register. The great dynamic range allows skilled players to explore confidently both the finest nuances of quiet passages and create powerful sonorities when playing close to the finger-board or using a strong bow arm. The Gold G-string within the standard set is wound with a pure gold wire. It offers a round and full tone.



PIRASTRO CELLO PERPETUAL strings – our most powerful cello strings - are characterized by great flexibility and an extraordinary tonal spectrum – from a sweet, warm tone to sheer endless power. The tone is focused and clear, the most delicate touches are instantly audible and the base warmth always present. The natural qualities and timbre of each cello are enhanced by the strings’ great dynamics and intensity. CELLO PERPETUAL strings are available in different varieties.
