The Il Cannone celebrates Paganinis legacy with what Larsen believe to be a truly revolutionary sound.

In the design and development process Larsen 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. The feedback from musicians has confirmed that playability and feel on the fingerboard is excellent with a good resistance to the bow.

Designed to bring out the best in your violin, Il Cannone individual strings and sets are available in 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. 

Descriptions of the sound that Il Cannone sets deliver include: ‘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.‘

The Il Cannone E string, now available with a dedicated loop option, 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.

Il Cannone A Options

During the development phase of Il Cannone violin with musicians, Larsen identified two trends in terms of player response. One group of violinists preferred the directness and focus of a set using one prototype A whilst the other group chose the warmer and broader feel of an alternative A variant.

Warm & Broad or Direct & Focused? Larsen have completed an extensive trial testing Il Cannone A options. They listened to your feedback & are pleased to announce that the Il Cannone Warm & Broad A is now available as a permanent option.
