Special value! Try Pirastro's newest synthetic core D,G & C with the very popular Larsen A string! Full bodied sound with great projection & excellent bow response
I bought the regular Evah Pirazzi strings last year for my new viola hoping it would broaden my tone and sound. (It did). When I was in need for a new set I knew I could count on the Pirazzi series so I took the risk of buying the gold set. The C,G, and D strings have a more softer sound than the regular Pirazzi's but it did not prevent my viola from singing. While the normal Pirazzi's focus more on the bolder sound, the gold series focuses on soft, tender yet projectable sound. It makes me tear up every time I play with this set as it never fails to sing each note as I play. The Larsen A is a perfect combination with the Gold series as it doesn't whine as it gets higher. Rather, the A balances itself with the tender tone of the gold strings. The Larsen A can also reach very high ranges without losing its clarity! In addition to the great sound, the strings also have a great settling period as it only took the strings a day to settle! Yet another great product made by Pirastro! Highly recommend!!!!
I've had these strings on my older (130 yr old) 16 inch viola for about 10 days, and I'm very happy with them. Clear and quick response (compare to the Obbligato set I had been using). The sound is still warm, but with more center and "zing". Good projection for a smaller instrument. I will be very interested to see how they sound in about 6 weeks ( the usual life span for Obbligatos). The price for this set is very competitive.
I bought these strings after reading that they had good power and would mellow out the lower end. The A is fantastic, and sings through everything, and the bottom three strings really support the playing I do on the lower end of the viola. I'm really sold on this set, and I'm looking forward to seeing how they do after a few more weeks of playing! Of course Concord Music is always fantastic, and are always the go-to when I'm ordering anything string :)
Evah Pirazzi's are quality strings, but I find the A string to be a bit too bright for my instrument. Larsen is a perfect fit because it is not bright and tinny. It is full and complements the Pirazzi's well. I especially like the sound during chamber and solo work because the sound is clear and distinct. Concord always delivers quick and correctly and it is great doing business with them (am a repeat customer).
I always use Concord for their good value and products are always as described. I am a particular fan of the Eva gold series on my viola.
