Description

The original and best known synthetic cored string. Regarded as the reference standard for this type of string. Well adapted to give excellent playing properties on any instrument.

Dominant strings give a warm and clear sound which closely approximates to a traditional covered gut string. Tonally stable and easy to play on they suitable for all players beginner to professional.

Available in three tensions in full size and medium tension in fractional sizes. Aluminium wound on a multi-strand synthetic core.

To check your instrument size measure the length of the back (LOB) excluding the 'button' which is the thumb shaped extension at the top where the neck is anchored. Old instruments can vary, if more than 1/2" over choose the next size up.

3/4 - LOB 330mm (13")

1/2 - LOB 305mm (12")

1/4 - LOB 280mm (11")

Excellent strings for a fair price
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: I have used Dominant Strings for years, mainly for Orchestral playing, but also for Quartets and solos. I have always found them to give a good tone, plus they are long-lasting and stay at proper tuning after only a short time. I have never experienced what some reviewers describe as early unwinding of Dominant Strings. Indeed, I have sometimes changed strings just to ensure a fresh, bright sound in case the strings have become physically flatened by long use.

Cons: Nothing

Long lasting strings with good tonal response.

Pros: Good quality and reliable strings with good response. Suitable for most instruments. This probably explains why Thomastik Dominant strings are used by professionals and amateurs all over the world.

Cons: None

Still good

Pros: Dominant strings are still excellent and the Stringzone is prompt and good value. Annoyingly I bought a full set of strings from my local music shop then found they were £20 cheaper on stringzone- I won't be making that mistake again!

Cons: None

This string does what it says on the packet

Pros: It came in good condition and was no trouble to fix. It hasn't lost too much pitch since I put it on.

Cons: Nothing so far. Rather too soon to say.

Other: As I said in a separate email I think asking for a review of a string is a waste of time. The string I buy is not usually fitted until the next one breaks. This was an exception.
