Oh yes please!
Allen, 30.12.2014
I purchased these at the same time as a Thomann 22 double bass. I decided to leave the strings that came with the bass on it for a week or so to see how I got on with them, and if I would notice the difference between them and the no-name pre-loaded jobbies. To say the difference is dramatic, is putting it mildly! ...

The first thing I noticed while stringing up is the Evahs were silkier under the finger, and once I had them tensioned, and mid-change between the two sets of strings, I noticed a very definite difference between the finish of the strings. The Evah is a much brighter metal, whereas the stock strings were that bit duller.

As an aside - here's a tip, if you are buying strings, don't forget (if you haven't got one already), to buy a specialised double-bass string winder! ... there is a very good one here on Thomann that's only a few quid but your wrists will very much thank you for the purchase!

So - once I had them all strung up and roughly in tune, I started some basic playing to stretch as I brought them into tune. The next thing that struck me was the far lower tension compared to the stock strings ... far far easier to play. And finally, once everything was in tune and I started some pizz and then arco, boy, was I blown away ... these strings gave a deep, full, rich sound that have made a huge difference to my bass ... I am extremely happy I coughed up the few extra quid (they are costly) ... these strings and I are going to have a long relationship. I am superbly pleased with my purchase, highly recommended!

Great strings
Peter936, 27.07.2015
As a newcomer to double bass I was aware that the stock strings on my Thomann Model 22 3/4 bass could be improved upon.

The G string especially was quite harsh compared to the other strings when trying Arco.

Having done much research and gathered as much information as possible I decided to invest in a set of Eva Pirazzi Weich and I am so glad that I did.

The strings are slightly more flexible and therefore easier for Pizz with a broader sound. Similarly for Arco I experience a much fuller tone and they really help the bass to 'speak' with a consistent experience across all strings.

I would say that the strings would suit most styles of playing.

Absolutely great quality strings
Eleazar R., 02.11.2015
There's no doubt Pirastro is one of the best brands for string instruments.
I have been playing gut string for long time (either corda or eudoxa or oliv are fantastic), and even tho I prefer that old school sound; it's a bit difficult sometimes to have a proper live sound.
So I was thinking on trying these strings cause not long time ago, I did a recording with a rented bass and they were having Eva Pirazzi.
The volume and the sound are great. Wormer then the common metal strings, perhaps thanks to their synthetic core. Some times I may find them a bit tooo middely, but you can change it with your EQ.
Anyway, the deepnes you need in bass sound, is there.
They're great for both; pizzicato (obviously) and arco (or at least most comfortable then I thought); and I didn't have any problems with the transition from gut to metal strings
There's no dissapointments in sound, quality, playability; and they have a great price

Fabulous Strings
David3021, 08.03.2015
When you open the string packet under the leaf it says "I was so happy I couldn't stop playing". OK no pressure then. I had heard about the Evah Pirazzi strings on various bass blogs and websites and after about 3 years with my last set of Pirastro hybrids I thought I would take a chance. Being a double bass player is a hard job. It looks easy and bass guitarists usually think it's a bit like playing a big acoustic but the wear and tear on muscles and fingers can be serious. I needed a hybrid string because I play jazz and also work with a couple of local orchestras. Some strings don't work for both.
These strings do. They feel light and slightly rubbery and it takes a few minutes to get the feel. The first thing I noticed was the sustain on the bottom strings. It sings beautifully. The attack on the pizzicato is wonderful and although these are not going turn you into Scott La Faro they are the nearest thing to gut you will find. Bowing is good. Certainly better than anything I have experienced before. I had to lighten up with the bow as the sound was so loud. Three days after fitting them I played Mahler 4 and I was delighted with the control I achieved. I bought the weich version of this string to help my fingers cope with an increased workload and I can heartily recommend these strings. OK I was so happy I couldn't stop playing....
