Larsen Strings has this week announced the launch of the new ‘Virtuoso’ completed viola string set – designed to accompany the original ‘Virtuoso’ viola A string, first released in 1995.
“With the development of our new Virtuoso Viola strings the focus has been upon creating a new offering for viola D, G and C … built upon the firm foundations of our tried and trusted A,” Larsen Strings CEO, Laurits Th. Larsen has told The Violin Channel.
“With these strings, violists can find a balance of qualities to complement and mutually enhance something old with something new,” he has said.
The new completed set has been described by testers as having a “golden, open and clear tone … with a nice balance of warmth and brilliance.”
The sets come in both medium and soloist variants – and are available now internationally.
Individual strings are also sold separately.
