Pirastro Chromcor Violin strings have a single filament steel core which is wound with chrome steel. They produce a very brilliant sound that is warmer than Pirastro’s Piranito strings, they have big tonal volume and are suitable for all musicians, especially for the fiddler looking for a clear and brilliant sound. Pirastro’s Chromcor Violin strings have a very easy response and are wound with chrome steel; therefore long-lasting. Chrome steel cannot corrode which gives the added benefit of not being affected by hand perspiration.
Pirastro’s Chromcor strings are also suitable for electric or electrically amplified violins.
Pirastro Chromcor Violin strings are available in the following sizes; 4/4 for full-size violins, 3/4 to fit 3/4 and 1/2 sizes, 1/4 to fit 1/4 and 1/8 sizes and 1/16 to fit 1/16 and 1/32 sizes
All Cromcor strings are medium tension and available in sets or as individual strings. The 4/4 E string is available in loop end.
Pirastro recommends using Schwarz rosin with Chromcor strings.
