'Can you make me a cello A string?'

The answer was anything but simple but that chance remark led to the creation of Larsen Strings. The first Larsen cello A was successfully delivered from the Larsen family garage and the Larsen family of strings began to grow along with the realisation that:

Although some of the best things happen by chance we can make them truly remarkable by design.

At Larsen Strings we develop, produce and market strings of the finest musical quality for bowed string instruments.

Virtuoso® for Viola

With the development of our Virtuoso Viola strings the focus has been upon creating a new offering for viola D, G and C, built upon the firm foundations of our tried and trusted A. Now also available as Medium Extra Long.

‘Finding a balance of qualities to complement and mutually enhance something old with something new.’

Il Cannone® for Violin

Designed to bring out the best in your violin, Il Cannone individual strings and sets are available as two versions. The Medium variant has a more moderate tension with an open, colourful, projecting, richer and powerful sound whilst the Soloist brings a fuller tone, with even more presence and focus. Rusanda Panfili performs with Il Cannone.
