The string with 'zing'
Pros: I purchased a Larsen Tzigane violin E string as a replacement for a Dominant E string (love Dominant strings but not their E strings!). The Larsen Tzigane is a synthetic core string. I have found the string responsive with a pleasing clear tone and timbre. It didn't take very long to 'play in' the string and has only required slight tuning adjustment since installation. I have never used this brand of string before, but will probably continue to use the Larsen Tzigane E string in the future. Good value for money and not very expensive!
