New ‘Passione’ Strings (Pirastro) for Bass

I haven’t written about bass gear lately, but this is probably worth mentioning.  It seems as though Pirastro has relatively recently added another type of string to their line of high quality bass strings.  I use Pirastro exclusively and love their sound on my instrument.  I really wished I could have afforded ‘Evah Pirazzi’ strings when they came out a couple years back, but now I’m really wanting to try out their newest: ‘Passione’.

Gollihur Music has a webpage devoted to these new strings:
