Item Description

Ball End Medium, Synthetic 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.

Beautiful sound for a reasonable price
December 19, 2018
I have had Thomastik's Violin-Saite Dominant strings on my violin for over 15 years now. I love their rich, mellow sound, definitely my favorite strings in this price range. Last week, my A string snapped while tuning, which is hardly surprising given that they're several years old. The description says they should be change at "appropriate intervals." I am not sure exactly how long is considered appropriate; however, I didn't notice any appreciable change in sound quality or intonation in the time they have been on my violin. I do clean my strings thoroughly after playing and have dry hands in general, which seems to help with longevity. The strings hold tuning well and are responsive. Overall, they are a very good value with a fantastic sound.
