New from Larsen Strings
The Il Cannone celebrates Paganini’s legacy with what we believe to be a truly revolutionary sound.
In the design and development process, Larsen aims to produce the exceptional but it is only during the testing and trial process with hands-on musicians that we can truly know for certain. And we would seem to have succeeded. The feedback from musicians has confirmed that playability and feel on the fingerboard is excellent with a good resistance to the bow.
- Noble and powerful.
- A biting tone with a real punch.
- Highly colorful with many intricate harmonics.
- Clear. Open. Brilliant.
- A very fast and easy response especially in off the string strokes.
Currently available with removable Ball E-string only.
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 more moderate tension with an open, colorful, projecting, richer and powerful sound.
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.
-Sold as Sets only
String preferences are very subjective so take this with the appropriate sized grain of salt. I have a Holstein Amati replica and use the il Cannone Soloist for my G, D, and A strings. I use a Pirastro Number 1 E string with most of my violins and this one is no exception. The strings sound very even string to string and the Pirastro E blends perfectly with the Larsen G, D, and A. The strings are bright, focused and very responsive. I had tried dozens of brands and types of strings but all of them left me wanting. The il Cannones filled all the missing gaps, bringing added presence and sweetness to the sound of my Amati. The moment I first tried them, I knew I had finally found the right strings for my precious friend. I've been using them ever since and have no desire to try any other strings. In fact, I always ensure I have at least one spare set in my case at all times! :) https://fiddlershop.com/collections/violins/products/holstein-workshop-amati-violin
The il cannone strings are an excellent string. Very powerful.
These strings are amazing. Very colorful! They definitely ring clearly like a bell! Very powerful! I am very pleased with how they make my violin sound. Thank you to Michael O'Gieblyn for his great and accurate review.
