"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!

"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."
