About This Brand

Larsen Strings
Made with love and passion.

Get Me 300 Cello Strings
When a friend asked "...I'd like you to hold of 300 cello strings for me!", Larsen promised to try, but quickly realized his folly - high-quality cello strings were simply not to be had. He felt obligated by his promise, however, and threw himself into independent production. "I was protected by my ignorance. Had I known what a monumental task was before me, I would have had second thoughts."

The String with the Special Sound
After 18 months of development, Larsen had a string that sounded right. Eminent Danish and German musicians tried the string and they all agreed: "It's a winner; we'll keep it." Rumors of the string with the special sound spread quickly. Before long there were orders from around the world, and the waiting lists grew, as did the company.

What drives us is our love of music. Our goal is to enhance the musical experience of the listener. And that's no small matter.

POPULAR SHAR STAFF QUESTION
From ANN ARBOR, MI

Asked On: 07/20/2016

I’m just learning to play. What does medium, heavy, light gauge mean? What does dolce and forte mean? Which one should I buy?

SHAR Answer:

Strings are able to stay in place on a cello because they are held there by tension/traction (they are not glued onto anything). Strings have two ends; one end that gets threaded into the peg and the other end that gets attached to the tailpiece via a fine tuner (also called string adjuster). They form tension/traction between the two ends of the instrument; that’s what makes them have sound when played. When you hear someone refer to medium, heavy or light gauge (or tension), they're referring to the thin or thickness of a string, which can impact the sound and response of a string.

If you're just starting out, I would recommend medium (also referred to as medium/standard gauge). If you’re a parent buying replacement strings for the first time and you’re not sure, I would stick with medium/standard gauge. Without getting into too many complex details, just know that there are many factors (diameter/thickness/gauge, raw materials, pitch) that determine your string tension. Your string gauge/diameter alone does not determine a string’s tension, but can play a part in it. Buying a matched set of strings (all medium, for example) could give you the confidence that the gauges work well together. The choice of which gauge to use is a personal one, based on your playing style and the tone you are trying to achieve. As you progress and become more advanced, you’ll likely develop more of an opinion about what types of strings (including their material and their gauges) that you like best.

Dolce refers to a light gauge (thinner string and lower tension) which usually means more flexible and lighter (dolce means "sweet" in Italian). Forte refers to a heavier gauge (thicker string and heavier tension) which usually means more volume, more powerful but can also mean a slower response time when you place the bow on the string (forte means "strong" or "robust" in Italian.)
