Special Order ItemThis string set is a "special order item," which means that it is normally a non-stock item. This means that, if you purchase these strings, we will need to acquire the set from the manufacturer or a distributor, which may take anywhere from a couple days (normally) to a couple of weeks (rare, but we'll let you know). It also means that we are unable to provide overnight or two-day options for these strings.

We offer this set as a non-stock item because customers have asked for them, and they're not always easy to find at retailers. Due to their non-stock status, we only sell complete sets -- no "singles" can be purchased for this set. Also be aware that as a special-order item, the strings are not returnable.

Pirastro Flexocor

The core material of this string is a high-tensile rope made from carbon steel which is wound with chrome steel. It is a very good all-around orchestral string, as it has a very familiar and typical warm bowed tone with a quick response and short sustain. Very stable string with very short break-in.

Since we're not as personally familiar with these strings, our descriptions of them are primarily based on manufacturer information, but we're happy to add more info as we discover it -- and feel free to Email us your experiences with them!

Pirastro's "rope core" (steel strands wound like rope) are excellent arco strings, with a warm, full tone and easy playability. Nice pizz tone, too, if you favor a slightly more "old skool" vibe -- with less bright detail, a thumpier sort of attack, and strong fundamental.

SPECIAL ORDER ITEM - This rope-core string is reportedly outstanding for arco, as it can withstand a powerful and heavy bowing arm. It has a brilliant sound with a short sustain, with great projection and "big tone volume."
