What Larsen Strings say about the new Il Cannone Violin Direct & Focused :
“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.
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.”
The Il Cannone E string is made using a unique carbon steel, whilst the A, D and G strings build on a new, synthetic
core with a new winding process. The A string is wound with precision rolled aluminium flat wire and the D and G
strings are wound with pure silver. Available as sets or as individual strings. Soloist Direct & Focused variants are
marked with a red band.
