Evah Pirazzi upright bass strings
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. These
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 they
do not require a super tight tension to play. That does not
mean exclusively that they are lighter (less tension) on the bass.
Pound per pound they are about the same, but they just 'feel' easier
and lighter to play.
Some other suggested 'combined' jazz set ups:
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. This is a very popular set with our
customers. First, you can get the nice growl and
power of the famous Spirocore EA and then for those that think there
is too much edge on the Spirocores, or just don't have the time to
wait for the Spirocore D and G strings to 'settle' in. The
Evahs combine very nicely on the bass. One won't notice a
tremendous fall-off or difference. With this set, you have a
nice mellow D and G and very warm bowing tone for those that play
both Jazz and Classical. This is also a nice option for those
that are working on and/or studying both genres of music. See
our nice prices below.
Different gauges: On the combined set below
(Spirocore/Evah Pirazzi set), we suggest that unless you know
specifically what you or your bass needs, it's usually best to keep
the tension the same. Having said this, we counter by saying
you add in a medium E for a tad bit more power and it usually
doesn't offset the bass tension spread. Also, some like to
select a medium E,A,D and then add on the weich G if their G feels
too hard or strident.
