The New Larsen Virtuoso for Viola – A Complementary Balance – Available soon
If something works then why change it? Since its original launch back in 1995, the Original Larsen Viola A string has become almost the default choice for viola players.
Offering excellent projection with a broad spectrum of sound colours combined with a long lasting and consistent performance.
With the development of our new Virtuoso Viola strings, launched in January 2018, the focus has been upon creating a new offering for viola D, G and C, built upon the firm foundations of the tried and trusted A string. Finding a balance of qualities to complement and mutually enhance something old with something new:
‘A golden, open and clear tone with a nice balance of warmth and brilliance.’
The new Virtuoso for Viola, available as individual strings or as sets in Medium and Soloist variants, achieves that complementary balance. The Medium set delivers a rich sound texture whilst the Soloist is more focused and brings greater volume to the instrument.
Please note: The Original A string, medium is supplied as the ideal partner for both Virtuoso Medium tension and Soloist combinations packaged as sets.
The Original Viola A string is based upon a solid steel core, wound with precision rolled stainless steel flat wire. The Virtuoso Viola D, G and C strings build upon a synthetic multi-filament core and are wound with pure silver
