Gauges:
* Passione Solo is available in medium gauge only. The strings are slightly thicker than the medium gauge of the Passione strings.
* The Passione Solo Silvery Steel E-string gauge is medium (0.26mm).

Tailpiece Options:
* All A-, D- and G-strings come with a ball-end in order to facilitate the installation.
* The E-strings are available with ball- or loop-end.

Sizes: * All Passione Solo strings are available in 4/4.

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.
