Besides easy playability, long durability, perfect string-to-string perfect harmony, Perpetual strings are able to enhance the unique natural quality of each cello with great dynamic range, with minimal playing-in time. The tone is focused and clear, delicate touches are instantly audible with the base warmth.
Our engineers were faced with the challenge of developing a string using ground-breaking construction and superior material composition, while creating the machines required to achieve this. Our musical intuition and expertise allowed us to realize this milestone in our developmental work.
We approached the field of violoncello strings from an entirely new perspective: being able to forget your surroundings and focus on playing is what inspires and comforts a cellist. Therefore the key parameters we had to meet were easy playability, long durability, and perfect string-to-string harmony.
This new idea laid the foundation for us to make changes to the materials and processing techniques so that the strings acquired a further tonal dimension. This new dimension opens up the instrument to its full tonal colors and grants musicians the technical freedom to fully focus on their play.
Perpetual strings are characterized by great flexibility and an extraordinary tonal spectrum: from a sweet, warm tone to sheer endless power – everything is possible. The sound is like a large house with plenty of room for individual design. At the same time the tone is focused and clear, the most delicate touches are instantly audible and the base warmth always present. The natural qualities and timbre of each cello are enhanced by the strings’ great dynamics and intensity.
During the development we concentrated on reducing the break-in time. Our technicians did an impressive amount of research and analysis to develop a device for measuring the settling-in time, so each individual string can be tuned and brought to pitch before dispatch. This enables the materials used in the string to adjust and settle which significantly reduces the break-in time.
As a musician put it, the Perpetual Edition is the most power-packed set in our program. Strong and clear core sound on the G & C strings in combination with full and round sounding A & D.
The Perpetual Soloist is designed for the cellist who desires radiance and clarity on the G & C strings in combination with warm sounding A & D.
Designed to have the signature Pirastro warmth but with a stronger fundamental on the G & C strings in combination with clear and brilliant A & D.
- All strings have a ball-end.
A Soloist Strong
With its impressive technology and design this A string offers many qualities that cellists enjoy: warm tone, strong round sound yet still focused with no metallic overtones. This A also has a thicker gauge and slightly higher bow resistance which provides enormous power and projection. It is the warmest and richest sounding A in the Pirastro program.
C Edition Strong
This C string offers a very powerful and strong core sound along with a deep and wonderful warm tone. Its unique special construction results in an enhanced torsional stiffness and tuning stability with a very fast and direct bow response, making it the most sonorous C in the Pirastro program.
G & C Cadenza
Utilizing the same core construction as the Perpetual Soloist, the Cadenza G & C strings were created to provide players with lower tensions to match their instruments and allow older cellos to open up and play freely.
