New from Larsen Strings: A Complementary Balance…

Larsen Virtuoso® Viola

‘A golden, open and clear tone with a nice balance of warmth and brilliance.’

If something works then why change it?

Since its original launch back in 1995, our Original A has become almost the default choice for violists. Offering excellent projection with a broad spectrum of sound colours combined with a long lasting and consistent performance.

With the development of our new 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.

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

String Details
The Original Viola A string is based upon a solid steel core, wound with precision rolled stainless steel flat wire.

The Virtuoso Viola D, G and C strings build upon a synthetic multi-filament core and are wound with pure silver.

Viola Virtuoso Complementary Balance

The new Virtuoso for viola, available as individual strings or as sets in Medium and Soloist variants, achieves that complementary balance. The Medium set delivers a rich sound texture whilst the Soloist is more focused and brings greater volume to the instrument.

Virtuoso Viola Medium and Soloist Sets

Original Viola A Medium is supplied as the ideal partner for both Virtuoso Medium tension and Soloist combinations packaged as sets.

Once Upon a Time…

‘Where words fail, music speaks.’

Hans Christian Andersen

As a Danish company we may be forgiven for referring to one of our most noted literary figures in telling our story.

Join us for the journey of an individual string. Each Virtuoso or Magnacore, each and every one of the strings that reaches you freshly packaged and authenticated by the red Larsen Strings seal, has been on an eventful individual journey before it leaves us. So let’s start at the very beginning…
