Larsen Il Cannone Violin String Set with 'Warm & Broad' A String - 4/4 Size - Soloist Gauge
"Dedicated to the Artists"Paganini's dedication of his groundbreaking 24 Caprices, in 1820, was ". . . to the Artists". In this same spirit, Larsen created their latest violin string masterwork, new Il Cannone strings, in tribute to this greatest of all violinists, and to his magnificent violin, the Guarneri del Gesu that he called Il Cannone. Using the same new synthetic core technology as in their Virtuoso violin strings, Larsen set out to produce strings that would bring out the best in performances of "firework" pieces, such as the 24 Caprices. With a sound that artists have describes as "noble and powerful", "biting", and having "real punch", Il Cannone strings deliver that critical element that is necessary for a truly great performance. Offering good bow resistance, great hand feel and fast response, Il Cannones may well become your favorite strings.
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.
More about the 'Warm & Broad' A: During the development phase of Il Cannone violin strings, 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. Larsen listened to your feedback & is pleased to announce that the Il Cannone Warm & Broad A is now available as a permanent option!

Get Me 300 Cello Strings
When a friend asked "...I'd like you to hold of 300 cello strings for me!", Larsen promised to try, but quickly realized his folly - high-quality cello strings were simply not to be had. He felt obligated by his promise, however, and threw himself into independent production. "I was protected by my ignorance. Had I known what a monumental task was before me, I would have had second thoughts."
The String with the Special Sound
After 18 months of development, Larsen had a string that sounded right. Eminent Danish and German musicians tried the string and they all agreed: "It's a winner; we'll keep it." Rumors of the string with the special sound spread quickly. Before long there were orders from around the world, and the waiting lists grew, as did the company.
What drives us is our love of music. Our goal is to enhance the musical experience of the listener. And that's no small matter.
Ratings & Reviews
"These strings are perfect for my violin. I wanted something less expensive than Evah Pirazzi, but as close to the sound as possible. Based on Shar's chart, these were the closest. I love these even more because they have the bright brilliant sound like EPs in the E and the A string, but the G and D have a much warmer, fuller tone. The soloist gauge is no different in size from the medium gauge, the soloist possesses more power and sound though. My only complaint is that the strings have a metallic sound when they are slightly out of tune but ring like a bell when they are. So make sure the strings are in tune before playing."
