The Larsen Il Cannone Violin string set has a synthetic multifilament core with a carbon steel E string. The Larsen Cannone I1 string celebrates Paganini’s legacy with what we believe to be a truly revolutionary sound.
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.
It is Noble and powerful. A biting tone with real punch. Highly colourful 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 is available as Medium here or soloist (click here): The Medium variant has a more moderate tension with an open, colourful, projecting, richer and powerful sound whilst the Soloist brings a fuller tone, with even more presence and focus.
