Larsen Il Cannone Cello Strings
The new Larsen Strings Il Cannone cello range has been hailed as a step change in cello string development. Available in two variants, Direct & Focused and Warm & Broad. All eight strings are mutually compatible and fully interchangeable. By design. Il Cannone for cello gives you a toolbox of options to choose from to optimise your individual sound.
Please note, only sets available at product launch. Stay tuned for single strings to be available in the coming months.
As a key element of the development process we work with musicians, one on one, testing string prototypes. The responses and insights gained directly influence the formulation of new designs with the final phase being live performance playing the final design over many months. World renowned cellists such as Sheku Kanneh-Mason, Nicolas Altstaedt, Narek Hakhnazaryan and Jian Wang are currently performing with Il Cannone for cello. During their own personal workshops they found their ideal strings amongst the same selection that is now available to you. The core sound can be blended with any Il Cannone string combination(s) because all of the options are of a similar moderate tension and engineered to complement one another. For example, combine the Warm & Broad C with the Direct & Focused G and you will notice that C becomes more focused and the G becomes warmer.
ADDITIONAL A & C STRING OPTIONS Built upon the powerful foundations of a rich and expressive core sound, Il Cannone for cello offers you a rich palette of set up combinations. With our launch set we are delighted to include two additional strings, upper and lower, to experiment with the options. The launch set is supplied as ADGC Direct & Focused with additional and complimentary A and C, alternatives.
