The opinions, habits and preferences in the violin world are when it comes to choosing between A-strings with a metal or those with a synthetic core. Aiming first of all to provide a choice for all players we additionally developed a high quality, steel core A-string with a chrome-steel winding.
Starting with its sound spectrum, this A-string has nothing in common with the traditional steel string. It sounds rounder, more colourful and very voluminous. Combined with the synthetic core Perpertual G- and D-strings, this new A offers an organic transition with the D-string. Any fear of increased pressure on the instrument due to the use of a steel A-string is unfounded when using our steel-A Perpetual; this A-string does not burden the body more than the synthetic core A-string.
Like the Perpetual E, the steel A also comes with a removable ball and is therefore compatible with all types of finetuners. You can check the string tensions of all our strings on pirastro.com. The Perpetual steel core A-string and the 0.267 mm platinumplated E-string are available as singles.
