Perpetual Cello Strings

Perpetual Cello Strings Assertiveness and Projection
* Pirastro's most powerful Cello string
* minimal playing-in time
* great dynamic range enhancing the unique natural qualities of each Cello

Perpetual strings are characterised by great flexibility and an extraordinary tonal spectrum – from a sweet, warm tone to sheer endless power, everything is possible. The sound is like a large house with plenty of room for individual design. At the same time the tone is focussed 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. During the development we concentrated on reducing the break-in time. Our technicians did an impressive amount of research and analysis to develop a device for measuring the settling-in time, so each individual string can be tuned and brought to pitch before dispatch. This enables the materials used in the string to adjust and settle which reducing break-in time significantly. The Sets: Medium Set The Perpetual medium set is tonally clear and precise with tremendous warmth. The bow response of each string is easy and direct with no delay time, even the smallest bow movements are transformed immediately into sound. Soloist Set For more brilliance and dynamics we also offer the Perpetual in a soloist version. The combination of its wonderfully round and full sounding A with a surprisingly small diameter soloistic D awards the player with a sound image that has incredible radiance and presence. Edition Set As a musician put it, the Perpetual Edition are the most power-packed strings in our program. Tone by tone the shine of this new string radiates into the room without sounding metallic or sharp. Like having a palette in their hands, the Perpetual Edition provides the musicians with every tonal color from a focused bright sound to a room filling warmth which is like a hug for the music enthusiast. With their sonority, volume, and flexibility the new Perpetual Edition fulfills the players’ desire for projection in an impressive way while maintaining an inspiring light playability. The Perpetual Edition strings offer an exceptional nice bow resistance which results in a very fast and direct response especially on the lower strings.
