"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.

Larsen Violin Strings

I’m sorry to say that I’ve been disappointed in these violin strings. I use Larsen strings on my viola, but these violin strings do not have a full sound, nor are they responsive. There’s always a little hesitation before a sound comes out.

Decent quality strings

Larsen II Cannone Violin String Set for 4/4 Size is a decent quality string set. I recommend it to those looking for broader and more powerful sounds. However, only the A string keeps producing a metallic sound with my violin, which I did not expect nor look for. I hope that particular metallic sound disappears as I keep playing with it.

I love these strings

I love these strings because of the warm sound they bring but also bright mixed with that it has been my favorite strings so far.

Absolutely Phenomenal

These are the best strings I have ever used in any price range. I have used numerous Pirastro strings, even the expensive Olivs. I have tried synthetics, guts, and pure guts. These strings top them all. Their "beauty" only last for about 3-4 months for me, but I play about 20 hours a week. They are great strings, but I prefer them only within the first few months. I have a very dark, rich violin. These strings work perfectly in creating a nice, direct sound. They are loud, direct, but don't overpower the natural warmth of the violin. 10/10 recommend.
