Violin strings Larsen Il Cannone
Named after Paganini's famous Guarneri violin, these brand new strings from Larsen are some real cannons! They are within the sound range of Larsen's popular Virtuoso strings, but go even further. Larsen Il Cannone offers a sound that is rich in harmonies, with great projection and a spicy sound with unmatched responsiveness.
The strings are available in two versions: the regular medium version offers a slightly more rich, warm, open and mild sound, while the Il Cannone Soloist strings offer a more projecting, focused sound and are slightly higher in tension. The new top strings from Larsen!
The Il Cannone A string is available in two versions:
- An A string with a focused, direct sound. This is the A string from the standard set as it was developed originally.
- An A string with a warm, broad sound. This is a new version.

The ball end string has a small ball at the end that you insert into your (finetuner) tailpiece. A string with a loop end has a small loop that fits over a small hook on the E or A string side of your finetuner tailpiece.

- Medium tension: this is the most used tension, because the manufacturer has taken it as a standard that works well for most instruments. If you're not sure which tension you need, always take medium tension.
- Strong tension: thicker string, that usually sounds louder than medium tension but is less responsive and more difficult to play.
- Light tension: thinner string that sounds slightly less loud, but usually is more responsive and easier to play.
