Larsen Tzigane: Directly inspired by Ravel’s Tzigane and so delivering a richly smooth, saturated, sound with an overlay of sensual warmth. Rapidly played in and eminently playable with excellent focus and projection. A mellow accompaniment for the brighter to neutral sounding instrument.
The strings are offered in two tensions, 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.
String Details. The Larsen Tzigane G, D and A strings are made using a multi-filament nylon core. The G and D 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.

“I really fell in love with Larsen ‘Tzigane’ strings! Since I play on them, it’s like I have found my own identity. They respond right away and they are wonderful, both for musical or technical passages.
I also want to mention the kindness and high professionalism of the staff at ‘Larsen Strings’. And I wish you lots of success in the future! Many thanks!”
“An exquisite sound for a great price. The Tzigane strings really lift up the sound of a cheaper instrument. Especially the E string.”
