We have added a lovely edge to the sound, nice and bright so that it carries but still with that characteristic Larsen roundness. These strings offer many sound shades, from bright to dark, combined with a new clarity and brilliance -‘a truly singing sound’.
While the D medium and strong have almost the same tension level, they differ in sound colour. The medium delivers a rich depth to the instrument whilst the strong provides a brighter almost song-like clarity.
Magnacore G and C
These two strings produce an incredibly warm and focused sound offering a wealth of overtones, tremendous volume and exceptional string response –even when played in pianissimo. Playing-in time has been reduced to an absolute minimum to deliver outstanding string performance instantly.
The Magnacore medium configuration offers a wonderfully sonorous and broad sound with a unique ease of playability which is particularly suited to cellos with a neutral to bright timbre. Our strong variant is even more powerful, focused and direct. We can recommend Magnacore strong for all set ups but in particular for the darker and deeper sounding instrument.
Larsen Magnacore Arioso for Cello
New to the Magnacore menu: The Arioso A and D strings complementing the G and C and completing the set. Experience a new freedom of expression without a compromise in power. Well suited to both older Italian as well as modern instruments. For the gourmet musician experimenting with new combinations of sound texture and colour.
The Magnacore A and D are made on a solid steel core and wound with high quality precision rolled flat wire. Magnacore G and C strings are made on a concentric multistranded steel core and wound with high grade tungsten and precision rolled flat wire.
