One of the best double bass arco strings out there

IvarsOzolsDB, 23.05.2013
I used to use Thomastik Belcanto for academic orchestra and solo playing, then I tried Pirastro Passione and they changed everything. Amazing great delicate sound, you can make a lot more colorful nuances. Not only they sound great, you can play a lot easier, especially harder technical pieces, small notes in passages are clearly audible, not mushy at all. You can also play a lot faster than before. Also my bass wolf is almost gone. Then I tried again Belcanto's as they are cheaper and realized what a mistake it was. My year old Passione's performs a lot better than brand new Belcanto's.
I highly recommend these strings for academical orchestra and solo bass playing. These strings are one of the best double bass strings out there.

Very good orchestral string

Jbass, 13.09.2012
I compare with Thomastik Belcanto (orange on the bridge and in the machine), a string that is also specifically for the Arco game is awarded. I have raised the Pirastro strings since the purchase and stayed with it.

The advantages of Passione:

The playability is fantastic. The string is very easy to grip and responds immediately to the bow game. It is not necessary and not conducive to pressure. I play with rather heavy (194 g) franz. Bow, the pressure of the bow itself is enough. This good playability is retained in the highest positions and is especially impressive on the low H string.

The sound:

At first he seemed to me more dull than the Belcanto, which was not confirmed by the orchestra colleagues. The sound is full, mixes well with other strings, generates a lot of resonance.

The advantages of Belcanto over the Passione discussed here:

It remains comfortable that the sound is a bit more radiant and assertive. The pizzicato has better sustain, though both are Arco strings.

All in all, the Passione seems to me better for my purposes, I leave it on first.
