Pirastro Universal Violin E - Old Packaging

Pirastro describes the Universal E as follows:


  • The No.1 E-string has a coated carbon steel core material with a high-tensile strength and is wound with a very thin chrome steel flat-wire.
  • warm, sweet and brilliant sound
  • outstanding response
  • no whistling of the open E-string
  • As the No.1 E-string is wound with chrome steel, it is long-lasting. Chrome steel cannot corrode and is not affected by hand perspiration.
