Pirastro Pizzicato Bass Strings
These newly designed gut strings are for musicians playing mainly pizzicato. We have developed a specific spinning technology which results in excellent pizzicato sound properties and an outstanding playability. Its core is made from selected gut, which is wound with a silver plated copper wire or with nylon. The smooth surface of the strings results in an excellent feel. Pizzicato strings enable the player to produce a brilliant and powerful tone, longest possible sustain, at the same time allowing flexibility. The projection is such that even in a live jamming session the double bass keeps up with the other instruments. As opposed to common opinion these gut strings stay well in tune and have a long durability. The light tension and the evenness across the strings allows the instrument to swing naturally so that it can develop its own beautiful sound. Thus the player gains an increased volume, greater modulation and more brilliance without harshness.About Pirastro
It is the quality of our strings and rosin that makes PIRASTRO a well known brand name which stands for reliability and beauty of sound. Many musicians of bowed classical instruments prefer PIRASTRO strings because of the string's ability of modulation and altering the tone. This allows the musician to create an individual sound and to evoke the special sound characteristics of the instrument. Musicians can chose from the most comprehensive product program available in the industry, which offers gut strings such as Oliv, Eudoxa or Chorda, synthetic strings like evah pirazzi, Obligato, Violino or Tonica and steel strings such as Permanent, Flexocor or Chromcor. PIRASTRO rosin is adapted to each string in such a way that adhesive power and playability are optimised. The ancestors of the current owner Evah Pirazzi came from Italy to Germany more than 200 years ago. From the beginning as a small workplace of craftsmen in Offenbach near the Main river, a modern company has evolved under the name of Gustav Pirazzi & Comp.KG, with a staff of over 150 employees at two plants, both located in Germany. On January 1, 2002 we have been changed our name into PIRASTRO GmbH (Ltd.) Today's production is based on computer-aided and self-designed machines.In former times sheep gut was the sole raw material available. Apart from gut production is based also on state-of-the-art synthetics and various steel and none-steel strands, such as gold, tungsten, silver or titanium. Our research & development technicians work closely together with professional musicians in each stage of the development. Sophisticated R&D and quality control ensure modern PIRASTRO strings setting an industry standard. We would like to thank musicians and dealers worldwide for their kind help and valued support. It is your loyalty that is our motivation and engagement. It was also the destinctive feature of our 200 years anniversary in 1998 - and in fact it only made it possible
