This new C-string reacts to the smallest bow strokes and each bow stroke is instantly converted into a very harmonious sound image. The core material is made of a high-precision steel rope cable which is wound with a fine tungsten wire that has been specifically developed for making musical strings. By combining the use of these specialized materials with our advanced winding process, we have succeeded in providing the tonal and playing characteristics that are so highly valued by the violist in the form of our new Evah Pirazzi Gold C. 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. 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 • Which can be used in any environment no matter the degree of humidity or changes of temperature.
