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.
