Pirastro Pizzicato Double Bass Strings are a gut string designed especially for musicians who play pizzicato. They are constructed of a sheep gut core that is wrapped with silver-plated copper wire. Pirastro has developed a new spinning technology that results in a smooth string surface, offering great playability and an excellent feel. Pirastro Pizzicato Double Bass Strings are a low-tension set that enables the player to produce a brilliant and powerful tone with a long sustain. Pirastro Pizzicato Double Bass Strings have been described as being brighter in comparison to Pirastro’s Oliv or Eudoxa.
Please note that this is a special order set, and will take several weeks for processing. Pirastro Pizzicato Double Bass Strings are ordered directly from the manufacturer at the time you place your order. This means you get the highest quality, fresh from the manufacturer gut strings, not a set that has been sitting on the shelf.
- Handmade wound gut strings
- Bright sound
