Larsen Il Cannone Violin Strings
The II Cannone celebrates Paganini’s legacy with what a truly revolutionary sound. The feedback from musicians has confirmed that the playability and feel of Larsen strings on the fingerboard is excellent with optimal resistance to the bow. The sound that Il Cannone sets deliver has bee described as "noble and powerful. A biting tone with real punch. Highly colorful with many intricate harmonics. Clear. Open. Brilliant. A very fast and easy response, especially in spicatto."
Designed to bring out the best in your violin, Il Cannone individual strings and sets are available as two versions. The Medium variant has a moderate tension with an open, colourful, projecting, rich, and powerful sound whilst the Soloist brings a fuller tone, with even more presence and focus.
The Il Cannone E string is made using a unique carbon steel, while the A, D, and G strings build on a new, synthetic multi-filament core. The A string is wound with precision rolled aluminium flat wire, and the D and G strings are wound with pure silver.
