Pirastro Perpetual cello strings are part of Pirastro's newest developments. They have a clear but warm sound that has great projection. Moreover they have great responsiveness, despite the high tension.
The sound of Pirastro's newest Perpetual cello strings is crystal clear and precise, powerful and grand. Each string responds easily and directly. This is especially impressive with the G- and C-strings which respond immediate to the lightest bow techniques.
- A string: The tone is clear for the first few minutes, then gently settles into a full, round, and lush dark timbre. A string that truly touches with its warm mellow tone.
- D string: A »strong« string with incredible depth and volume. Full of body and abundant power; always warm and strong. Delightfully easy to play.
- G string: A string that wants to be tamed, inspiring the cellist and giving the entire set a more brilliant and a tempestuous sound. A focussed tone with a colourful spectre and warm undertone.
- C string: Sonorous and deep, yet direct and clear. Very large volume. Even with the smallest of bow movements you can still hear the keynote. Long sustaining power and impressively precise sound.
The G and C string are available in medium and heavy tensions. The heavy tension version has a slightly more focused sound.
