With the new Soloist A and D strings we added a lovely edge to the sound - nice and bright so it carries but still with the famous Larsen roundness. These strings offer many sound colors, from bright to dark, combined with a new clarity and brilliance - a truly singing sound. Our Larsen Magnacore G and C strings have an incredible warm and focused sound. They offer a wealth of overtones, tremendous volume and exceptional string response - even when played in pianissimo. The playing-in time has been reduced to an absolute minimum, delivering outstanding string performance instantly.
