 Il Cannone® for Violin

Il Cannone by Larsen Strings

‘For years I have struggled to find that elusive combination of great response, great quality and great projection in a violin string.
In the Il Cannone I have finally found just that. They are, in many ways, the perfect strings.’

Benny Kim Il Cannone

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.
