Pirastro Double Bass Strings

Professionals and dedicated amateurs are the targets for double bass strings made by Pirastro, a German company founded in 1798. Pirastro offers three lines of double bass strings:

• Evah Pirazzi strings offer a sound that's big, dark, and powerful, with excellent projection. They're made with a synthetic core that's wound with chrome, and are impervious to changes in temperature or humidity.

• Obligato strings have a sound that's bright, brilliant, and focused. The tone is growly, especially in the E string. They're also impervious to temperature or humidity changes.

• Oliv strings have a gut core that's wound and polished by hand, then wound with chrome. Their sound is dark and powerful, with a great diversity of tonal colors.
