Tzigane for Violin

‘When I discovered the Tzigane strings I found the warmth, strength and subtlety I had been looking for. With Larsen I can continue my musical exploration knowing that I can trust these strings to deliver’.

Caroline Pearsall

Larsen Tzigane

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.
