Janine Jansen Strings

December 24, 2018, 9:28 PM · Hi, does anyone know what type of strings Janine Jansen is currently using? It seems like Evah Pirazzis from pictures but she isn't listed on the pirastro website.

Jansen looks to be playing a full set of Evah Pirazzi, at least on the recording of Szymanowski Violin concerto you can see her using them.

December 25, 2018, 8:57 AM · Oh and also, what's the colour of the tricolore windings on the tailpiece end?

Check this video, it's the set Heifetz used: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YnaIvnYkdWI

otherwise you can find pictures on the Gamut website

Lydia, thank you for the explanation, this was something I was unaware of.
