Good strings but consider the alternatives
23 out of 26 found the following review helpful

Pros: These are the most popular violin strings in the world, offering good performance at reasonable cost. People don't like the E string but it works ok for me.

Cons: I have had dominant As and Ds unwind after heavy use.

Other: As a fiddler (as opposed to a violinist) I prefer Thomastik's Vision strings - livelier, brighter and in my experience more durable, and with easier and truer intonation. I have a 1750s Cremona violin and a 1880s German one and that's my preference for both. My modern fiddles have metal strings.

Happy returning to the proven Dominants!
7 out of 8 found the following review helpful

Pros: I am satisfied returning to the proven Dominants! On my violin with a Codabow GX and Vision strings the sound became too bright. Now the tone is more rich, mellow and balanced.

Cons: Takes a few days breaking in. I am still no Jascha Heifetz..

Excellent quality strings that sound good and play
9 out of 12 found the following review helpful

Pros: Good sound, easy to play, reliable quality. Once broken in, these strings stay tuned very well over time (which is very handy for young players practicing without parental help). Durable. Pleasant looking coloured silk ends.

Cons: Not sure they are worth the extra money over the Thomastik Vision strings which appear to be just as good, but are 8 Pounds cheaper for the set.
