Well-regarded synthetic strings with good projection, warmth, and a bit of an
edge to their tone. Larsen strings are popular with some fiddlers for their unique combination of bite and full-bodied tone.
The plain steel E offers brilliance and clarity. The alternate gold-plated E is warmer and richer in overtones, but is also more prone to whistling, particularly on high-end instruments.
An alternate aluminum-wound steel A is available to order from the
Individual Strings page. The steel core provides a smoother transition between the E and A strings, and produces a brighter, more focused tone.
A silver-wound D string is available to order from the
Individual Strings page. Silver-wound strings produce a clear, rich tone, and last longer than aluminum-wound strings.
Larsen Violin strings offer a warm, yet direct and determined sound. They quickly reach tuning stability and deliver excellent projection. Larsen Violin strings are reliable and highly suitable for bright sounding instruments in need of extra warmth.
