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 available in two different tuning options; orchestra and solo. 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#.
