Il Cannone Model

The Il Cannone violin model originated from an unlikely source. The Italian violinist Paganini lost his instrument to gambling, and was given a seemingly substandard model by luthier Giuseppe Antonio Guarneri. Paganini loved the instrument so much that he used for the rest of his life, keeping it in perfect condition. The violin later became widely recognised for its exceptional playability and comfortable feel. The loud projection and open resonance makes it ideal for soloist players, whilst its ability to play fast also assists with scaling the higher frets.

Stunning Tonewoods

The use of maple and spruce is a tried and tested combination used in superior quality violins. This combination produces a focused, powerful sound with plenty of body and tonal warmth, which will only improve over time. The woods are hand selected based on their age and narrowness of grain, before being hand carved for a sound and appearance full of heritage. The distance between the grain affects the resonance of the instrument, with a narrower grain resulting in a more responsive, full bodied and weighted sound with a strong tonal core. The maple back and sides help provide a hard-wearing violin that works with the narrow grain spruce, to provide a unique instrument with incredible response, projection and full tonal body.

Larsen Virtuoso Strings

Larsen's aim was to set a new standard of strings for the violin. Using an innovative synthetic core with only moderate tension, the string is capable of producing a rich nuanced sound with remarkable projection. Larsen has produced a consistently reliable string with fantastic playability and great string response.

Marco Raposo Violin Bow

The Marco Raposo VB031 Violin Bow demonstrates elegance and durability with a timeless feel. This bow combines intricate hand crafting methods with modern technological advancements for an impression that?s both familiar and consistent. The rounded stick is ergonomically designed for a comfortable grip. The Brazilian Pernambuco wood stick translates the subtle nuances and expression in your performance for an open weight on the strings. This violin bow enables the advanced and musician to develop and articulate their own tonal characteristics and playing style.

The case has a blue micro fibre suede interior with one large accessory pocket. This case also features a high quality German lock to keep your instrument safe and secure.
