Larsen Tzigane violin strings, without exaggerated tension, are built on a newly developed composite fibre bundle core. Tension creates volume rather than carrying power. The unique combination of overtones makes for a quality sound not unlike that of a great singer - a sound that carries while, at the same time, is pleasant to the ear of the player. Tzigane strings offer a sound and response similar to gut strings, providing a broad range of tonal colors. A complex, rich tone with good focus and projection.
