Larsen Strings Seal


Some of the best thing in life happen by chance. A seemingly insignificant conversation and coincidence of events that ended with a simple question:

“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. Combining practical, creative, musicianship with the experimentation of an enquiring technical mind the 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.
