In the design and development process at Larsen, they always aim to produce the exceptional but it is only during the testing and trial process with hands-on musicians that they can truly know for certain. With the Cannone they 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.

A little history on the Il Cannone Violin:

The Violin: The ‘Il Cannone’ Guarnerius violin, 1743, was made by Giuseppe Guarneri ‘del Gesù’ of Cremona (1698-1744). The violin acquired its name from the former owner and virtuoso Niccolò Paganini (1782–1840). Il Cannone is known for its resonance and power and is so deeply associated with Paganini that the violin is often known as simply Il Cannone, ex-Paganini.
The Virtuoso: Niccolò Paganini’s exceptional virtuoso talent and his remarkable dexterity and flexibility accorded him an almost mythical and rather
mystical reputation during his lifetime. Paganini possessed unusually long fingers and was capable of playing three octaves across four strings in one hand span. His talent was viewed as so extraordinary, verging on the unnatural, that he was seen as having associations with the supernatural. Something that he apparently did nothing to discourage given the publicity and notoriety that he was subsequently rewarded with.
