Perpetual Violin Strings
Within Pirastro's line of strings, Perpetual provides the largest sound volume and carrying power combined with a precisely focused sound projection The clarity of its sound, however, does not diminish the abundance of colors Perpetual offers. Its vibrant tone attack and optimal string response seamlessly complement Perpetual's sound qualities from extreme fortissimo to the most sensitive whisper.
The standard set includes a synthetic core G-, D-, and A-string with the 0.26 mm E-string.
For players who prefer a metal core A string, a high quality Perpetual steel core A with chrome winding is available; this available in the alternate set with the 26.7 E string
I love the thicker e string, it's gentle on the fingers and sounds more mellow and full in the upper register
I got the alternate set, these are quite high quality strings, nice overtones and beautiful smooth sound that's definitely more mellow but still incredibly ringing and vibrant. Their playability is a little strange; they gain a slight grittiness (not crunchy, just an off vibration) in the initial stroke response as they get older, but its not really that noticeable. The platinum e is also quite superb, although again the response might not be quite as good as it gets used, however it is better in comparison to many other strings. Highly recommend.
I played the Evah Pirazzi for over 30 years and switched then to the Gold strings. I liked the Gold little better than the Evahs for a while but found that these strings are lacking two things: wide range of dynamic and complexity in sound. They were a little too plane for my taste. So I gave the perpetuals a try: I loved the complexity in sound right away but was really impressed by the great range of dynamics. Playing in ppp the sound still is focused, clear and very pleasant, playing ff the sound is big and still does not lose it's complexity. For me these are the best strings yet. I did not try the E-string but use still the gold E from Evah Pirazzi. Since I am so pleased with the Gold-E I did not want to spend the money trying the perpetual E. May be some day. In my opinion you would need a fine violin to fully appreciate the perpetuals.
I'm highly recommend Perpetual. It's good sounding and tuning strings!!
The improved clarity is immense. The sound is so incredibly focused. The volume is identical to Evah Gold. No improvement at all. Tone is relatively full, not thin like Vision Ti strings. The strings resonate so much more, so I hear more (improved intonation). The quality of my violin is drastically improved. The E string is to be avoided. 27g Goldbrokat is better for only $1.65
