Some of the best thing in life happen by chance. A seemingly insignificant conversation and coincidence of events that ended with a simple question:

The Stradivari Challenge
‘Chaconne’ Stradivarius (1725) versus ‘ex-Hämmerle’ Stradivarius (1709)
Il Cannone® for Violin with both instruments played by Rainer Honeck, Concertmaster, Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. Laurits Th. Larsen visits Vienna and talks us through a Stradivari challenge at Marcel Richters’ studio. Please view and see and hear the results.
Virtuoso® for Viola
With the development of our new Virtuoso Viola strings the focus has been upon creating a new offering for viola D, G and C, built upon the firm foundations of our tried and trusted A.
‘Finding a balance of qualities to complement and mutually enhance something old with something new.’
Il Cannone® for Violin
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. Rusanda Panfili performs with Il Cannone.
