Evah Gold D: Silver wound/synthetic core; Item :4153
Evah Gold strings offer great dynamic range and projection, excellent string response with a full-bodied golden tone and fast break-in time
I much prefer this set to the standard Evah Pirazzi which I find too brittle sounding and high-tension for my violin. Obligato was nice, but I wanted something with a bit more punch. I strongly recommend this version of the set, with the Silver G. The Gold G has an interesting behavior where it has a slightly gut-like delay to the start of the sound. While the tone color is certainly fascinating, that delay makes it difficult to play next to the regular D string. I tried it for a week or two but it annoyed me too much and I went back to the standard Silver G. The only drawback is that upon degrading, they become very "crunchy" sounding, and it isn't really much of a smooth falloff either. Keep them on long enough and play them past the point of no return, and instead of just becoming indistinct and soft like other brands, these things can sound terrible.
We had a defective G silver string. Concord forwarded it to the US Pirazzi dealer, and the dealer replaced the entire set at no cost to us. Very impressed with their service.
Wanted to like this string as I have been a hesitant fan of the original Evah Pirazzi's (loud and tense but without a lot of warmth or color) and also like PI's but they're very expensive. Hoped this would be a good balance between the two but have never struggled so much with a G string before. Had a lot of difficulty playing parts of Wieniawski Polonaise in D and Zigeunerweisen that resolved upon changing strings. May be a good string for some but definitely not all.
It took too long to receive them.
Nice strings. They do not have the richness of the Passione strings but they are more responsive.
