Larsen Il Cannone Solo Violin Strings 4/4
Larsen Il Cannone violin strings celebrate Paganini’s legacy with what Larsen believe to be a truly revolutionary sound. In the design and development process here at Larsen we always aim 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 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 individual strings and sets are available as two versions. 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.,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.
When Larsen Strings developed the Il Cannone for violin string set, they tested extensively with violinists. During testing, they identified two different trends: By using two different A-strings they were able to achieve a direct and focused sound, or a warm and broad sound for the whole set. When Larsen Strings introduced the Il Cannone set, they selected the direct and focused sound. Since the successful launch of Il Cannone, Larsen have continued their close contact with violinists and have learnt, that some musicians are still searching for the warmer and broader sound, which is why they have introduced the warm and broad set, and warm and broad A, in addition to the direct and focused sound of the original set and A string.
