Paganini's dedication of his groundbreaking 24 Caprices, in 1820, was ". . . to the Artists". In this same spirit, Larsen created their latest violin string masterwork, new Il Cannone strings, in tribute to this greatest of all violinists, and to his magnificent violin, the Guarneri del Gesu that he called Il Cannone. Using the same new synthetic core technology as in their Virtuoso violin strings, Larsen set out to produce strings that would bring out the best in performances of "firework" pieces, such as the 24 Caprices. With a sound that artists have describes as "noble and powerful", "biting", and having "real punch", Il Cannone strings deliver that critical element that is necessary for a truly great performance. Offering good bow resistance, great hand feel and fast response, Il Cannones may well become your favorite strings.

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, colorful, projecting, richer and powerful sound. 
  • The Soloist brings a fuller tone, with even more presence and focus.
