The length of colored silk at the peg end of the Passione G-string is different than the length of the A- and D- strings. This has been done intentionally and is part of the construction of the G-string.
The special length of the G-string’s color winding at the peg end prevents the string from breaking in the peg box. At the latest after two to three days the stretching process will be finalized. As a result the silk winding will no longer reach over the nut.
Pirastro has made numerous tests with this special G on various violins all differing in size and the string has always fit. On some violins it takes longer, with other violins the string even fits from the beginning.
2 days before my order arrived, I had an accident. I broke my right wrist. So, very difficult to comment on these new strings. But that being said, my experience here as always been first rate, and I have no reason to believe this won't be the same thing. I have a beautiful 18th century Neapolitan violin that is waiting for these new strings. I'm very confident that once I can get back to playing, I will love these strings. I will update when I'm able to.
These are great smooth and loud they have excellent tonal color as for I play a lot of Yiddish and Hebrew music. Rabbi Vito G. Adragna. Shalom.
