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.
Direct & Focused or Warm & Broad?
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.
Try it for yourself, we’d love to hear what you think.
A ready-made toolbox of string options avoiding the expense and frustration of unreliable trial and error. You can modify and control the tone of your instrument in a way that is easy to predict.
