Item Description

Ball End Medium, Steel Core, Aluminum Wound Comparable in sound to natural animal material but without the disadvantages. These strings have a highly flexible, multi-strand nylon core and cater for artists who feel uncomfortable with steel strings. The resounding success of our Dominant string owes a lot to its similarity in tone and response to gut strings, without gut's attendant drawbacks. The sound of the Dominant string is full and mellow, yet rich in overtones. Its radiance, its ability to project sound without being metallic, comes to the fore both in arco and pizzicato. Other advantages are Dominant's effortless response to intricate fingering and its tuning stability even under extreme atmospheric conditions. But Dominant's beauty of tone is not as long lasting as that of a steel string, a price the discerning musician will be prepared to pay for this quality of sound. Dominant strings should be changed at appropriate intervals to ensure continuity of tone color. N.B. The playing and tuning peg length of the string are critical, so the string used should be exactly matched to the instrument's measurements.

Great 1st String

I've never been a fan of silver tinned E strings. Maybe it's just me, but on electric violins/fiddles they just sound too thin. THIS string does not sound thin. The winding really grabs the bow, allows for a much fuller sound, especially in higher registers.
  • Deeper tone, not shrill. Allows for better bowing.
  • Have to buy it separate. Maybe thats not a real "Con" ?
