Who the heck are the Pirazzis, anyways?
Is Evah Pirazzi a real person? Or did Pirastro just come up with a cool name for their most popular line on the spot? i've always wondered about this.
I heard someone say something about the considerable contributions of the Pirazzi family to the string industry once, yet I can't find anything on the internet (in other words, I don't feel like searching for more than 5 minutes).
It certainly sounds Italian with double z - one more reason to spend money on expensive, hight tenzzion, short life span strings, eh?
So it IS a real person! That's really interesting.
"EVAH" is an acronym for "Extra Volume And Harmonics."
I always assumed that "Pirazzi" is derived from "Pirastro".
“Evah” (with a short e sound) is how we here in Boston pronounce “ever”.
I was working in Dunkin Donuts when I was 15yo and studying music college :)
Who are the Perpetuals?
Evah Pirazzi has a brother, Wall-Eh Pirazzi.
