Original Viola

Larsen Strings Original

Our Larsen Viola A has very nearly become the default choice as the foundation for the ideal viola set up. Offering versatility and projection combined with long lasting and consistent performance. Medium lends a lovely mellow sound, while strong offers brightness and power.

All four strings are offered in two tensions, medium and strong, the A string is also available in soft. The strong tension strings offer more volume and higher resistance to the bow.

String Details. Original Viola. Our Viola A string is made on a solid steel core. It is wound with precision rolled stainless steel flat wire. The C, G and D strings are made with a unique multi-filament nylon core. We use windings of precision rolled silver flat wire for the C and G strings, and aluminium for the D string.
