Pirastro Evah Pirazzi Double Bass Strings are a hybrid set, suitable for both Arco and Pizzicato playing.
Constructed with a modern synthetic multi-filament fiber core that is wound with chrome steel and polished smooth, this set is a further development from the success of Obligato’s. The result is a set that provides outstanding tuning stability, a very short break-in time, and an astonishing resistance to rolling. Pirastro Evah Pirazzi Double Bass Strings are resistant to changes in humidity and temperature. The big, powerful, warm sound of the strings is combined with an accentuated low frequency spectrum and an exceptional resonant decay. Quick response allows for easy left and right hand articulation. Due to the phenomenal projection of the Evah Pirazzi strings, the range of tones and nuances can be heard even in large concert halls.
Pirastro Evah Pirazzi Double Bass Strings are available in Light/Weich and Medium/Mittel tension or Solo. Compared to the Medium/Mittel set, the sound of the Light/Weich set is brighter and growlier with a little more sustain, and a pronounced core sound. If you are unsure which string set is for you, consult the Color Code below, or call our shop at +1 (860) 535-9399.

Gary’s Thoughts: Pirastro Evah Pirazzi Double Bass Strings are the most popular multi-use string on the market right now.They’ve set a new standard in the multi-use category and have spurred along many other manufacturers to redevelop their products. They are a great multi-use choice, but as with any hybrid string, there may be other strings that are more suitable for a specific style. For jazz players, I’d recommend light/weich gauge, as they feel more like most manufacturers mediums. The medium here is much more of a heavy string. As far as pizzicato playing goes, the Evah Pirazzi’s aren’t bright by any means, in fact they are more of a medium to darker sounding string.
