Pirastro Evah Pirazzi Slap bass strings are specifically designed for Rockabilly and Slap bass players. They have been developed with the famous slap bassist Nicolas Dubouchet.
There are two variants of the set available:
- Full set of strings made up of plain gut G and D strings and synthetic chrome wound A and E strings combining traditional and modern core materials.
- Full set of strings where all strings are synthetic core – no gut involved. The E, A and D are Chrome wound and the G is Aluminium wound
In terms of performance, they project very well and have a dark, rich tone making them ideal for slap and some styles of pizzicato playing.
The plain gut G and D of the Evah Pirazzi Slap set are made of sheep gut using new techniques which allow for reduced playing-in-time and better tuning stability without losing the gut sound. The core material of the A and E is made from a new synthetic material that exclusive to Pirastro. The new core material offers an unrivalled range of sounds, and is unaffected by temperature and humidity changes, this offers the musician an unparalleled dynamic range. The A and E strings are wound with finely polished chrome steel flat wire. Each individual string has been carefully designed to match one another giving a smooth transition from string to string without any tonal break between the plain gut D and synthetic A.
