Pirastro Violin Perpetual A-steel strings set
Perpetual violin Steel A strings. Manufacturer Pirastro (Germany).
The opinions, habits and preferences in the violin world are split 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 Perpetual steel-A Perpetual; this A-string does not burden the body more than the synthetic core A-string.
Thanks to innovative materials and adopting new, carefully matched production methods, the development of Pirastro Perpetual resulted in a string set with a character not yet found in our product family. Within our range of violin strings, Pirastro Perpetual provides the largest sound volume and carrying power combined with a precisely focused sound projection. The clarity of its sound, however, does not diminish the abundance of colours Perpetual offers. Its vibrant tone attack and optimal string response seamlessly complement Perpetual's sound qualities from extreme fortissimo to the most sensitive whisper.
The Perpetual violin strings react in an ideal way to the finest nuances in bow speed and pressure; this enables the musician to play with an extreme range of dynamics and expression. The innovative core material allows a comfortable smoothness during legato, shifting, string crossings, double stops and chords. The extended reverberation of the Perpetual brings forth an exuberant lustre.
