The Larsen Original Viola A string has very nearly become the default choice as the foundation for the ideal viola set up. Offering versatility and projection combined with long-lasting and consistent performance. The medium tension string lends a lovely mellow sound, while the strong offers brightness and power.
All four strings are offered in two tensions, medium and strong, the A string is also available in soft. The strong tension strings offer more volume and higher resistance to the bow.
The Larsen Original Viola A string is made on a solid steel core. It is wound with precision rolled stainless steel flat wire. The C, G and D strings are made with a unique multi-filament nylon core. We use windings of precision rolled silver flat wire for the C and G strings, and aluminium for the D string.
