Giorgio Pirazzi

You may have noticed that Pirastro has updated its website. The website features a user friendly design and a large resource of product information which will be very useful to players, e.g. size, gauge, characteristic features, winding materials, colours at peg end and tailpiece end. Pirastro strings continue to receive very positive reviews on and new products such as Evah Pirazzi Gold violin strings (released in 2012) have proved extremely popular. Pirastro's journey began in 1780 when Giorgio Pirazzi, a miller's son, was sent at the age of fourteen to learn the craft of string making in Naples and Rome. Henning and Annette Müller-Zierach are the 6th generation of the family to lead the company.
