"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. 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.
During the development of the Il Cannone line, Larsen identified two trends in terms of player response to alternate A-string choices. One group of violinists gravitated to the directness and focus of the classic Il Cannone A while the other group preferred a warmer and broader feel achieved by partnering up Il Cannone with the alternative A. Try both options by choosing this promotional set. You will notice the difference, not only on the A-string itself, but how the change effects the overall sound of the set. Which will you prefer on your instrument?
