    I've used Pirastro strings for a number of years. I've never used a gut string before and thought that Pirastro's new go at it would be a good one to try. That being said, I can't really say how the Passione compares with other gut strings, but I can say that I have not enjoyed them at all. Pirastro does give you a little forewarning that the break-in time is going to be longer than with a synthetic core stirng. They were right. The break-in time was terribly long. It was maybe a good week before the strings settled down, but even after that they weren't nearly as stable as Pirastro's other strings. It's bad enough that if you were playing a long piece you would need to worry about checking the tuning. I'm not overly enamoured with the tone either. The timbre is neither as bright as the Pirazzis, nor as rich as the Obligatos. The biggest draw back is the lack of playability. I don't really know how to describe it, other than to say that they seem "stiff". I've been using them as I've been working on the Brahms concerto. They are extrordinarily difficult to use with multiple stops. They just don't want to take it. Pirastro strings are by far the best, but I was disappointed with this example. As I said in the beginning, I've never used a gut string before and can't say if these are better or worse than others. But I can say that I'm (despite the large cost) ready to get rid of the set! Stick with the Pirazzis or the Obligatos. You'll save a few bucks and be happier with the result.

    Sound to die for. Feels great on the fingers. Somewhat expensive though, but they last!

    Pirastro Passione Strings. These strings combine a gut core with a synthetic polymer warpped, as usual, in various metals. Pirastro claims these strings have been many years in the making, and that they are truly unique. From my experience with gut core strings, (such as pirastro oliv or gold label), they can seem quite unresponsive, feel odd and soft under the fingers, and “die” quickly (as might be expected from a string incorporating organic material). With the passione string, however Pirastro has sought to combine the warmth of gut with the stability of pitch and easy response of synthetic core strings. But do they succeed? My feeling is yes and no. When first installed, these strings are very responsive, aside from the G string, which feels a touch loose (i.e. unresponsive). For a few months, they do seem to add warmth and color that I have not seen in any other synthetic core string, while, for the most part, retaining playability consistent with other synthetic-core strings. One downside is that these strings are very expensive, and, considering their shorter life-span, many violinists might be turned off by this alone. Additionally, despite their relatively easy response, they still feel a bit soft under the fingers, which for some violinists feels good but for others is a very foreign sensation. Finally, another quality of the passione strings is that they are a lower tension string, and thus optimal for certain violins (especially highly arched violins) that can respond to higher tension strings with a choked and muted sound. There are a lot of strings on the market, and the major players (primarily D’Addario, Pirastro, and Thomastik-Infeld) seem to come out with new additions every few years. I do believe that choice of strings does affect the sound, but, as “everything affects the sound,” sometimes there are other factors (such as an ill-fitting bridge or sound post) that are impacting the violin even more significantly, and fixing these rather than searching for the “perfect string” is of paramount importance.
