Strings of power and nuance
If you enjoy a string with great power, brilliance, and projection but want to avoid high tension, the new Larsen Virtuoso may be the string you’ve been looking for. Manufactured at a medium level of tension, the Larsen Virtuoso will allow your violin’s tone to blossom and open up its natural range of sonority, yet allow you to fill the concert hall with sound all the way to the back chairs. Soft feel under the fingers, yet extremely articulate and responsive. Synthetic core with fast settle-in time. Medium tension.
These strings are fantastic! I have tried several sets of various strings on my very dark sounding Holstein Bench Lord Wilton violin and these were the ‘ones’ that brought my violin to life! The lower end (G string) on my violin was having a bit of trouble getting the volume/projection of the other strings. I had also tried the Peter Infelds which were a close second, but seemed a bit too high tension for my instrument and we’re still not letting it open up all the way. These Larsen strings really made the lower end of my instrument brighten up and overall made the violin sing! These will be my choice of strings from now on.
After receiving 3 A strings, I finally got the 3rd replacement A string to stay on the peg without snapping and breaking. So, all 4 strings are on the violin and I am satisfied...thank you for sending 2 replacement A strings. Great service.
To be honest I was expecting more from this set , But they really Did not sound well on my violin . I read that they needed some time to blossom , Two weeks later and somewhat better but not as good as the Helicore mediums I had on before , there is no magic , I will continue to use then but when they are done I will go back to Helicore medium !
As I was putting the strings on and just plucking to tune, I could tell they were beautiful mellow and smooth. I put the whole set on and I love the gorgeous tone. The E string is mellow and smooth. I have never had strings sound this beautiful. As usual the customer service at the Fiddlershop was top NOTCH and personal. I recommend this strings. I use them on my MJZ 905 violin. The are a superior in my opinion to the Larsen regular. As others have mentioned they play nice, sweet and soft and yet if a big sound is needed they really can blast a beautiful tone. Five Stars from me.
These are beautiful strings and gave the 925 its distinct character when it arrived.They are not warm like say Zyex but have a sparkle and interesting sound that is instantly compelling.The G string in my opinion is really important and defines the entire set:it has outstanding projection and focus of sound and is never dull;its tone is hard to put into words but is beguiling non the less.The middle strings are sublime too because of certain overtones and one wants to continue playing.They have a comfortable feel and respond well.The E string was a Lenzner so not here but there.
