Expanding the Il Cannone Universe

For our new Il Cannone Violin Direct & Focused in Medium & Soloist editions our aim was to develop a silvery and lustrous clarity of sound to enrich your style & instrument. Aimed at leading professionals and soloists as well as inspiring aspiring student and amateur violinists, we have developed an entirely new synthetic core at the heart of this new sound. Combining a new winding process we have further enriched the colours of this unique new formulation.

“My passion is pushing materials & technology to the limits of possible. The insight of musicians in the development process has been essential…& now it’s over to you!”

Dr. Thomas Zwieg

Vice President, Product Development.

The new Direct & Focused sets have already travelled the world. Tested with musicians extensively in Europe, North America and Asia on both new instruments and old Italian instruments including Strads and del Gesù. Violinists describe the strings as having empowered the whole instrument with more colour possibilities, more clarity, more edge and greater gain.
