Thoughts on my string combination?
Evah pirazzi gold D
Evah Pirazzi heavy D
Evah Pirazzi heavy A
You'd probably be just as happy with a matching set. Did you really try every combination and somehow decide that these exact strings in this exact order make your violin that much better?
Why do you ask?
I have another solo concerto coming up. Looking for something different
Your combination certainly sounds interesting!
What Brock said. Since we cannot hear your violin, we really cannot advise you. I hope it works well for you. The only comment I have is that Obligatos are quite warm while Evahs are quite bright. So, I wonder, ....
Can you give us some reason why you picked this particular combination? I could make some wild guesses - the first of which would be that they were the only ones you had left in your string box.. :)
I can’t imagine an obligato string would pair with an Evah Pirazzi string. They are complete opposite in tone and projection.
I too am curious as to what your rationale is for this selection of strings. What are you trying to achieve?
It's OK-let him explore.
(EDIT: I wrote this response when the post was about Obligato G, EP Gold D, EP A, and Westminster E.)
Please scroll to the top. I believe this is what I'll be experimenting with
Well, you asked for feedback. My feedback is that this combo doesn't make very much sense at all. Good luck with it. It's your money. :-)
The medium Evahs are already higher tension than most, I would be concerned if your instrument can handle it. Have you tried medium? Evah Gold with regular Evah Pirazzi isn't too strange, and I have used Westminster with EP successfully.I'd start with medium tension on all strings, if not light. Light EP is on par with most other synthetics in tension. If your G isn't way brighter than the others, I'd get EP on it instead. Usually if people don't like the EP set, they swap the A and/or E. Maybe have the soundpost adjusted by a luthier and ask their recommendation?
