Larsen Virtuoso E vs Tzigane E
Hello all: To those who have tried the Larsen Virtuoso E and /or Tzigane, how do they feel in comparison in terms of sounds/volume and character? (or to your other favorite Es)
E strings are incredibly personal to the violin. How an E modifies the sound of someone else's violin will be nearly irrelevant to what it does for yours. Buy and try, or go to a shop that has tester strings.
Between these two, I have only used Tzigane E while have Virtuoso E (stark) as one of spare Es.
Thank you for your comment Zhi Yi (like the famous actress...? :)
I played a Tzigane E string once. I thought it was a good E string for my violin. But Goldbrokat is just as good and a lot cheaper. I still have a Tzigane in my case that I'll use someday if my string breaks.
I'm a big fan off the amber e which I've used with a few different string asserts on a couple of different violins.
