Special Features:
The length of colored silk at the peg end of the Passione 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. Pirastro has 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.
