Larsen Il Cannone Strings
There are some past threads that are archived and they're kind of old too. Anyone currently using these? Specifically the solo ones and what do you like or dislike?
I have been using the Cannone not the solo on my Vuillaume and loved them. Tonight I changed the G to a Rondo and really prefer it.
I posted my impressions sometime back:
I have only ever used EP Gold on my viola, and they still sound decent ish after almost a year on it. I've never really thought about trying different strings
Lydia, I've been hooked on Rondos too and believe we had a discussion about them not too long ago!
A box of new Il Cannones and a box of new Rondo violin strings have been waiting in my string drawer for a few years now and I may try them.
Because new strings are always much better than old strings (even strings that just a few weeks old), we always perceive a huge delta between what we have and what we're putting on.
Maybe not the perfect place to mention marital issues but also there are many studies showing that simple things to plan for in marriage reduce divorce rate significantly
One thing I've been wondering about recently is the new formulation of strings and what it says about new violins. After all (we might say), the best antiques sounded just fine with gut strings, and then Eudoxas, and then Dominants. Is adding a sexy synthetic to a new violin sort of like putting ice and lemon in a New World Cabernet to make it competitive with Bordeaux?
