Alina Pogostkina
Virtuoso for Violin

‘Larsen Virtuoso: A string that certainly earns its name in combining virtuosity with superiority. An effortless and playful elegance.’

Prof. Friedemann Eichhorn

Larsen Virtuoso

We offer Larsen Virtuoso strings in two tensions, medium and strong. Virtuoso medium and strong are both somewhat lower in tension than their conventional equivalent gauges. The medium tension strings show extraordinary string response, playability and sound modulation capability. The strong version is more focused in sound, more ‘soloistic’ and with higher resistance to the bow.

Extremely well received and consistently reviewed as setting the new standard for the violin. The ambition was to create a truly innovative synthetic core string at only moderate tension yet capable of delivering a richly nuanced sound with exceptional volume.

Eminently playable and noted for its remarkable string response and reliability the Larsen Virtuoso is now available as sets or individual strings with E ball or loop end. Purpose designed with moderated tension we offer medium and strong options to suit warm to neutral sounding instruments.

Larsen Strings Reviews

Independent reviews submitted by musicians

“I have a beautiful violin, made by Vissenaire in France in 1859. Since I play with the Larsen Virtuoso strings, my violin sounds even better. With brilliancy and a very clear sound. They make my violin sound great, thanks to Larsen.”

“Very good strings, my favourite is definitely Virtuoso. Soft and nice sound.”

“Brilliant strings. I have played fiddle for 21 years and tried lots of string types. These Larsen strings give unparalleled sound playability and durability compared to any other string I have played. Excellent first class product.”

“Larsen Virtuoso strings are clear and loud but with a feel and playability of a warm synthetic string. If your instrument is relatively dark sounding but cannot handle a lot of tension these are the perfect strings for you.”

“Excellent products and fantastic people. That is what comes to my mind first when I think “Larsen Strings”. I give 5 stars just because cannot give more”

“Invited to come and visit the LARSEN STRINGS factory in Sonderborg, I really appreciate the professional and human behaviour of the staff. They just want to produce the best strings! Their enthusiasm is contagious.”
