Great String, Lasted 2 years!
My last Pirastro Gold finally went flat after an absurd length of time. It was on my violin for about two years. In all that time, it sounded better than any other string I tried, without being so loud that it hurt my ears. I am not even sure if the string was at fault for going flat because I think the cold weather made it pop out of tune. I decided it was time for a change. It is also easier to install than any other string I ever tried. Too many of them seem so tight that I am nervous about getting it in tune. Not the Pirastro Gold, which are wonderfully flexible even when stretched tight.
Pirastro Violin E String
My favorite E string when not using the one from the set
Compatible with most sets, good tension, not too much, but enough to provide darkness and depth to the G string. Sweet and powerful sound.
I have had this string on my violin for a couple of weeks now and I can really say that it makes a huge difference coming from metal core strings. It takes a bit to break in but it has a more rounded complex sound, and can also project really well without cutting your left ear off. Overall this is the best e string I have had.
