Larsen Strings

Welcome

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

Il Cannone® for Violin

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.
