Set with a core of new synthetic fibre, the E-string has a plain steel core and ball end. The Violino strings from the Pirastro company have a modern synthetic core. The outstanding price/quality ratio makes them also suitable for beginning players and students. Compared to the Evah Pirazzi and Obligato strings, the Violino strings have a lower string tension and are especially suited for violins which are unable to cope with tension of other synthetic core strings. They have a sound which can be described as smooth, very warm with a lot of colour to them to allow the nuances of the music to be interpreted well. The strings are well balanced and very stable. They are very easy to play, have a soft and gentle touch and a fast response.
