Strings always have to balance the equilibrium between a big sound (which usually requires a higher tension string) and good bow responsiveness (which is a lot easier on a low tension string). Larsen Virtuoso violin strings try to combine a low tension with a nonetheless projecting sound, and they do the job quite well! They are therefore an excellent tool to give warmer or neutral instruments more spice, without giving up on good bow responsivity.
Larsen Virtuoso violin strings are available in tensions medium and heavy. The heavy tension variety has a slightly more focused, soloistic sound.
