Evening everyone!

 

Can anyone help me ID these strings? I really like them but can't seem to match them up on any string charts I've come across online.

They are teal with a bit of red at the peg end across all 4 strings, the tail end are gold wound with either black or navy blue (hard to tell). The e is gold at the tail.

Edit: appears I can't type tonight, sorry for the typo in the title.

Hi Christine,

I think they are Larsen Tzigane.  Here's a site that has review & pictures:

There are various webpages such as these:-

https://www.violinstringreview.....or-id.html

I see the problem - the lashof pictures are better, but they don't illustrate Tziganes.
