Presenting Il Cannone® for Violin

Our thanks go to Josef not only for this video but for his kind assistance in the development process. We work with musicians that we know personally and who choose to work with us in the trialling and testing of new strings. This provides an essential and invaluable contribution in the evolution of our products.

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.
