Professor Ma Wen plays Larsen Il Cannone for Cello.
“I always like to use Larsen strings. This time, I tried the Larsen “Il Cannone”, and I felt very good, the sounds with pure and transparent timbre and extremely expressive. The A string is bright and textured, and the bass string is rich and powerful. It was very nice, I highly recommend it.”
