In addition to the Larsen Aurora strings for cello, Larsen has just launched the Aurora strings for violin as well. Taken directly from the Larsen website:
"The predominant theme of our new design was to create a string for all. A new string for all instruments and players adding a faster response and deeper density, reaching that sweet spot of balance between brilliance, warmth, breadth and focus for almost all violins.
Aurora violin is a string for all ages from the youngest student starting at the very beginning to the seasoned professional looking for a new, higher quality, reference standard for violin strings. Offered in full size medium and strong and medium fractional sizes from 3/4 to 1/16, Aurora violin opens the opportunity for all to learn, develop and perform with professional grade strings at an accessible price.
The E features a unique bespoke developed carbon steel core whilst the A is aluminium wound on a synthetic core. The D is available as either double wound aluminium or as D Silver which is wound with layer of aluminium and one of high-grade silver. The G is wound with the same high grade silver which is of an even finer quality than sterling silver.
Aurora Fractional: purpose designed, perfectly proportioned versions of our full size Aurora offering quality strings for smaller instruments."
The Larsen Aurora set consists of:
- E: Carbon Steel
- A: Aluminum wound over synthetic
- D: Aluminum or Silver wound over synthetic
- G: Silver wound over synthetic
