Leonid Kogan used two Guarneri del Gesù violins : the 1726 ex-Colin and the 1733 ex-Burmester. He used French bows by Dominique Peccatte. Many speculate that he played on all steel strings, though there is not an outright confirmation. While his close associates indicate he played on gut strings with a steel 'e', it is most likely that he used different combinations over the course of his career. 

The EMI Kogan recordings from 1950s and 1960s used to belong to Columbia, who released about five stereo recordings : Brahms Violin Concerto (SAX 2307), Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto (SAX 2323), Lalo Symphonie espagnole (SAX 2329), Beethoven Violin Concerto (SAX 2386), and Leclar/Teleman/Ysaye Sonatas for Duo Violins (SAX 2531). Today these original records are among the most sought-after for classical vinyl collectors; for example, the Beethoven Violin Concerto (SAX 2386) soars up to 10,000 sterling pounds in eBay auctions (ref : www.popsike.com).
