Violin strings Larsen Tzigane
Larsen Tzigane violin strings are very warm, dark sounding strings with low tension that are ideal to give bright or sharp instruments more depth. Because their tension is low, they usually have a very good bow responsiveness (but attention: our experience learns that the low tension may cause on some instruments problems with left hand responsiveness/articulation). They produce a wide range of overtones, which results in a rather good projection.
Larsen Tzigane violin strings are available in tensions medium and heavy, where the heavy tension variety is advized for very sharp/loud sounding instruments.

Ball or loop end?E strings on a violin and A strings on a viola can come in two versions: with a ball end or with a loop end. The ball end string has a small ball at the end that you insert into your (finetuner) tailpiece. A string with a loop end has a small loop that fits over a small hook on the E or A string side of your finetuner tailpiece.

- Medium tension: this is the most used tension, because the manufacturer has taken it as a standard that works well for most instruments. If you're not sure which tension you need, always take medium tension.
- Strong tension: thicker string, that usually sounds louder than medium tension but is less responsive and more difficult to play.
- Light tension: thinner string that sounds slightly less loud, but usually is more responsive and easier to play.
