Silver wound/gut core: Item: 2193S
Brilliant, powerful sound, great projection & easy response. These strings "break in" much faster than traditional gut strings; Passione Solo strings are somewhat thicker than the medium Passione violin strings
i love these Passione strings on old Italian violins, even tried them with success on modern instruments. they keep their tuning after 2 days or less- and are very manageable.
Quick and reliable service, and competitive pricing. Good selection, too.
This is an excellent gut string with a velvet like sound. As you play, you can feel the vibration of the string at your fingertips which makes you believe there is life in them. The fourth string has great depth and warmth of sound. I currently combine Thomastik-Infeld strings with a Hill E string.
I have used Passione strings, both regular and solo, for many years as a member of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra. I also use them in solo concertos with orchestra - no problem being heard over a full orchestra. They are the best strings I have ever used in terms of both sound quality and durability. They may never be as "bright" or "loud" as steel or synthetic strings but they will also never be ugly or shrill. Don't confuse brightness or loudness under the ear with projection. They are capable of producing the widest range of sound color, have extremely powerful projection and have lasted me up to six months of daily orchestral use. Many synthetic strings develop flat spots relatively quickly and thus go false much faster than Passiones. In comparison to other gut strings they play in much more quickly, at most a day or two, and are generally more stable than older-style gut strings. Like all gut strings Passiones will react to changes in humidity but this has never been an issue for me. Recommended for players who want the best sound with great projection and long life. I particularly like the Passione G and D. The A has not worked as well for me but that may have to do with my playing style or the violin I used them on. I find absolutely no drawbacks to these strings.
