Larsen Tzigane® strings provide a rich and saturated sound with a sensual warmth. They are remarkably easy to play and give fantastic focus and projection. Their mellow character delivers a perfect balance with bright and brilliant sounding instruments, for players seeking a warmer timbre.
The Tzigane® G, D and A strings are made using a multi-
filament nylon core. The G and C strings are wound with precision rolled pure silver flat wire, the A string with aluminium. The E string is made of a unique carbon steel.
The strings are offered in three tensions, soft, medium and strong. The strong tension strings offer the most volume and resistance to the bow. For very bright sounding violins, Tzigane® strong tension is the ideal choice.
