The German-based string company Pirastro has introduced a new kind of strings for violin: "Perpetual Cadenza," which were just made available last week.
"The new Perpetual Cadenza violin set is characterized by its warm and very deep sound with a great wealth of colors and noticeably easy to play," said Pirastro U.S. Marketing Manager Ed Mingo. "In addition, these strings inspire the player with their brilliant, clear, and powerful sound as well as with their optimal response without resistance. The left hand feel is very light and soft due to its lower string tension. Shifting positions and portamenti can be played with noticeably less finger pressure. The overtones are rich and enable a wide range of color nuances while allowing the violin to resonate very freely."
The new strings came out in late June. Pirastro has been offering Perpetual Cadenza G and C strings for cello for some time, Mingo said, but at this they do not have plans for a Cadenza viola set.
The strings are available as a set. For detailed information about the strings, please click here.Tweet
