The new Larsen Magnacore® Arioso C and G strings are great and powerful and have at the same time a “round” sound. Each string instrument needs a specific tension level to balance its inner resistance. Often an overload of tension reduces the vibrating capacity of the instrument. This is where the new Magnacore® Arioso strings provide a unique opportunity of creating a beautiful, wide and sophisticated sound at a lower tension level. Especially the upper strings gain freedom and volume from the lower tension level.
