‘I love playing the Larsen strings, mainly because their sound is large, aristocratic and resonant as well as seductive, highly efficient and very noble.’

Our A and D strings are wound with a special precision rolled stainless steel flat wire. Meanwhile, the G and C strings are wound with tungsten, providing a deep, warm and focused sound with great power and personality. All four strings are offered in tensions soft, medium and strong.
