Special Features:

The length of coloured silk at the peg end of the Passione G-string is different than the length of the A- and D- strings. This has been done intentionally and is 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.  We have made numerous tests with this special G on various violins all differing in size and the string has always fitted.  On some violins it takes longer, with other violins the string even fits from the beginning.
