Evah Pirazzi upright bass strings

Evah Pirazzo bass stringsEvah Pirazzi upright bass strings are the new "hybrid" bass strings!  That is, they are attractive to both the jazz and classical player because work both really well for bowing and plucking.  The new Eva Pirazzi upright strings are made with a new synthetic core and hey are probably the 'darkest' sounding bass strings on the market.  This is probably the only string that was designed as an arco string, that sustains so well for jazz playing.

Upright basses seem to respond well to the 'Evahs' because of the low tension which in return tends to free up the vibration and response of the top of the bass.

Some other suggested jazz set ups:

1) Evah Pirazzi G and D, with Thomstik Spirocore E and A (keep the growl of the lower end of the bass, with very similar sustain on the upper two strings (being able to arco better.)

2) Spirocore E and A, with Pirastro Permanent G and D, will offer more power, but depends on the character of the bass. (i.e. not for super bright basses.)

We have the lowest price bass strings in the world.
