D'Addario developed the Passione string set with the aim of reducing the playing-in-time of traditional gut strings and to increase their tuning stability without loosing the beauty of the gut sound. The gentle processing of the gut core is key to the conservation of the beautiful sound of gut strings.
The combination in manufacturing of modern synthetic and traditional gut technology made it possible to retain the sound beauty of gut core strings and to significantly increase the tuning stability and the break-in-time.
Passione strings possess a fascinating diversity of sounds, which allows musicians to alter their tone as desired. To such an extent, this is still only possible with gut core strings. The core sound is full, round and warm and has a complex overtone spectrum causing brilliance and clarity and a great power of projection.
Passione's sound can be big and powerful as well as gentle and tender. Passione is a modern reliable gut string for the demanding violin professional. The set is well-balanced and the response is easy on all levels of the dynamic range. The accuracy of contact point is easily manageable, similar to Obligato, Wondertone Solo and Evah Pirazzi.
A, D, G and E strings come with a ball end in order to facilitate the installation.
The length of the coloured peg end of the Passione G string is different than the length of the A and D strings. This is on purpose and part of the construction of the G string. The special length of the G string's colour winding at the peg end prevents the string from breaking in the peg box. At the latest, after two to three days the stretching process will be finalized. As a result the silk winding will no longer reach over the nut. Numerous tests have been made with this special G on various violins, all differing in size and the string has always fitted.
There is no need to change the height of the bridge for using Passione strings.
