Top quality bass strings
JDstrings, 03.06.2013
As you would expect from Pirastro and at this price these are top quality bass strings. They are made with synthetic core and metal winding and if you like the slightly softer feel of a synthetic cored string these are a great option. They have a full round sound and feel nice under the fingers as they are thicker than all metal strings.
They are well made, well finished and long lasting. I have a set on one bass that must now be five or more years old and they still play and sound great.
They come in normal or 'soft' tension. I have used both sets and they do have slight differences in feel and tone but I have been equally happy with both.
They are great as a general purpose string for covering a range of styles. Obviously, strings are very much a matter of personal taste/what suits a particular instrument/playing style etc. so there are no hard and fast rules... Definitely worth a try and, for what it's worth, my personal favourite!

cordes contrebasse
Reyhart, 25.06.2011
cordes contrebasse possédant une ame synthétique,revetues d'un filet plat métalique, très gros sustain et énorme projection sonore en acoustique, trés bon rendu en pizz ou arco, le tirant est assez fort (plus fort que les obligatos, plus souple que des spirocore rouge de thomastik). je les utlise depuis plus d'un an et pour l'instant ce sont les meilleures cordes que j'ai essayé.

Gute Saiten
Frank991, 15.06.2010
ich habe mich für die Evah`s entschieden, weil ich pizz und arco spiele. In verschiedenen Foren wurde diese Saite immer wieder positiv erwähnt. Vorher spielte ich die Obligato Saiten. Auch gut für pizz und arco, aber diese Saiten haben sich leicht in sich verdreht, was man beim greifen dann schon gemerkt hat. Die Evah`s machen nicht solche Verdrehungen. Den Vergleich habe ich ja jetzt deutlich gemerkt. Nach ca. zwei Wochen waren die neuen Evah`s schon sehr stimmstabil und hatten sich gut eingeschwungen.

Die Ansprache beim Bogenspiel ist direkter und genauer als zum Beispiel bei den Obligatos. Der Sound der Saite ist ausgewogen. Man hört viel Holz und der natürlich Klang des Instruments wird deutlich hörbar. Beim pizzicato ist die Evah weicher als die Obligato Saiten. Das finde ich persönlich aber auch sehr angenehm. Die Amplitude der Saiten ist etwas grösser als bei den Obligatos, aber die Saitenlage musste ich deswegen nicht verändern. Auch verstärkt klingen die Saiten für mein Gehör ausgewogen und druckvoll. Ich kann die Evah`mit ruhigem Gewissen empfehlen.

dulces
Mª Esperanza, 13.06.2012
Si te gusta que el contrabajo suene dulce, es una muy buena opcion, lo que más tienes que tener en cuenta con estas cuerdas es que són un poquito mas gruesas de lo normal (un "sol" de estas, seria igual de gordo que un "re" normal), gran profundidad en orquestra, y muy, pero muy buen resultado en los pizzicato, sobretodo si quieres que suene a profundo.
