Dominant strings for reliability.

Pros: Generally a long lasting and reliable string that stays in tune and has a good tone.

Cons: Not as good a tone as a covered gut string.

Other: I've used them for decades as a professional player.

I am happy with Dominant strings
0 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: I have used Dominant strings for years. They are a good compromise between quality and price. I play in a good non-professional orchestra and Dominant strings give me (generally) a sound I like, but...

Cons: The A string is sometimes a bit "bright" and slightly out of kilter with the remaining strings. HOwever, they are good overall for the price.

Pros: Used these for years, all OK. Note there are different lengths depending on your scroll length.

Cons: Seem to fray alot quicker than they used to - previously had one on for nearly 10 years, been through 6 in the last 18m now.

Other: Paid for speedy delivery as needed them urgently, but still took 3 w/ds to arrive. Last time I just went with the standard service and arrived in the same time.

Dominant viola strings. Excellent value product.
0 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: I have been using these strings for about 35 years ( playing the viola for some 58 years) and found them durable and of consistent quality. It is the A string which usually breaks, with the other strings I tend to ware the winding away after about 15 years! The strings suit my instruments.

Cons: None

Other: Very pleased with the String Zone service and Dominant strings in particular. A very good mid range product for playing in Orchestra and string quartet.
