Product Review: Pirastro Evah Pirazzi Gold Cello Strings
Looking to invest in professional cello strings? Here is our review of the Pirastro Evah Pirazzi Gold Cello Strings.
Evah Pirazzi Gold Cello strings are a delightful set to play on. They have a strong rich tone with great depth of character, and display a wide expressive range.
They have a great amount of power and beauty in the lower registers on the C and G strings, and they have the ability to really sing powerfully. On the other strings there is a great deal of richness and character.
The A string particularly is a very useful option when troubleshooting tone difficulties on some instruments. Often cellos are brought in for us to improve the sound quality. In situations where a cello’s A string creates a thin or harsh tone, and other strings have been unsuccessful, Evah Pirazzi Gold A string can be a successful solution. The greater richness and power brings a full sound where other strings may have been unable.
Each Evah Pirazzi Gold cello string has its own individual character and at the same time their interplay generates a wonderfully harmonious set. The strings are extremely responsive and react quickly over the entire dynamic range; even with very gentle bow pressure.
The Evah Pirazzi Gold set offers a full spectrum of sound, great overtones and projection without metallic harshness. They offer an elegant, clear, full sound with character.
The A & D string have a high tensile steel core and are wound with precision chrome-steel flat wire. The G & C strings have a specially designed steel rope core and are wound with top quality tungsten. They are available in 4/4 size in a Medium tension and are suitable for use on ⅞ cellos.

About the Simply for Strings Cello Library
Simply for Strings has created a trial ‘String Library’ for cellists to visit on appointment and try different string sets and/or combinations, so that we can help with their search for the sound and response they need. Here you can try before you buy, with our guidance and assistance. In this appointment, we’ll have a discussion with you before we start fitting up to three different sets on your cello. We let you trial the strings in-store to determine which strings may suit you and your needs best. And if you need, we can play your cello for you, so you can hear it as both listener and player. It’s an obligation free appointment, all you need to do is bring your cello, and prepare to fall in love with some new strings!
