Pirastro Evah Pirazzi double bass strings are the market-leading double bass strings for 3/4 and 4/4 size instruments. Single strings and sets of Evah Pirazzi double bass strings by Pirastro. In standard orchestra (G, D, A, E) tuning and variations available for C extension E strings and a low B for a five-string double bass.

We use these strings ourselves, we fit them to a good number of the double basses we have for sale. We find them to be the best hybrid all-rounder strings.

These strings have a gut-like Pizzicato sound and start very easily under the bow for Arco playing which is what makes them the most popular synthetic cored double bass strings on the market today.

The most popular version of these strings is the orchestra tuning, medium tension, set of strings. Closely followed in popularity by the low tension or “weich” orchestra tuning set.

Evah Pirazzi double bass strings are a great hybrid string made in Germany by Pirastro. They command a huge following with double bassists around the world, this makes them one of the most popular bass strings that we have ever sold. The weich variant of the string is a low tension string which a lot of bassists find easier and more comfortable on the left hand to play.

Similar strings to consider would be D’Addario Zyex or if you are looking for less sustain and more warmth when playing Arco Pirastro Obligato would be a good choice

Pirastro recommends that you use their Bass Mittel Rosin with Evah Pirazzi Strings.

Mittel vs Weich

For most players, the medium (mittel) tension is considered to be normal. Compared to the “mittel” or medium tension set the sound of the “weich” or weak tension strings is brighter and has more growl with a little more sustain. The set has a pronounced core sound. Due to the reduced string tension, the playability is easier than with the standard set. If you are unsure which tension to choose please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Orchestra vs Solo Tuning

Evah Pirazzi bass strings are also available in solo tuning. Most bass players will use the normal orchestral tuning of G-D-A-E compared with the solo tuning strings which are designed to be tuned one whole note higher giving you A-E-B-F#. If you are looking for Solo strings with less sustain and more warmth under the bow Obligato Solo strings are a good option.
