Complementing the Original range and purpose designed for enhanced projection, focus and volume particularly at the higher harmonics as demanded by the professional solo player. Our Soloist Edition is offered in soft, medium and strong for A and D and medium and strong for G all optimised slightly above the Original equivalents.
The strings are based on solid steel cores, different in properties and dimensions from their Original cello counterparts. The A and D wound with precision rolled stainless steel flat wire and the G with tungsten/flat wire.
Choosing G & C?
Complete the Sound of Your Cello with Il Cannone G & C
Larsen A & D have become the default choice for the discerning cellist but completing the set up has always felt like a compromise. We recommend combining Larsen A & D with Il Cannone G (Warm & Broad) & Il Cannone C (Direct & Focused).
“This combination delivers a sound that is both familiar & yet considerably richer in character. The old sound of a familiar set up enhanced by a little Larsen magic.”
Our Recommended Hybrid Combination
‘When you find the right combination (of strings), it’s a wonderful feeling. It gives you a direct connection between you and the instrument’.

Aiming for sustainable solutions
Our ambition at Larsen Strings is to progressively work toward sustainable solutions in the way that we operate as a company. Some steps are small and some, such as our decision to upgrade to a C0² neutral electricity plan, are larger steps towards our destination.
