Il Cannone for Violin

It’s the perfect string for a powerful soloist who needs that extra kick of sound.’

Rusanda Panfili


The Il Cannone ® celebrates Paganini’s legacy with what we believe to be a truly revolutionary sound.

In the design and development process here at Larsen we always 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. And we would seem to have succeeded. 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 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. 

Descriptions of the sound that our 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.

Looks great. Will try them when I replace the strings on the violin.
