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. Silver 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.

1/2 - LOB 305mm (12")

Reliable service and excellent range of products.
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Excellent quality and good packaging.

Cons: Chose the free delivery instead of paying the extra £2 like we did last time to try it out. With the free delivery it took over a week to arrive but for £2 it takes 2 days so is really worth it.

Brilliant Christmas gift

Pros: My niece told me she would like a dominant G string for Christmas. Hmmm. This proved to be easy to get, cheap to post and exactly what she wanted. It was also good to write "I hope you enjoy your new g-string" in her Christmas card, and be told this nearly made my sister choke when it was read out. As my niece is a musician I'm sure she will enjoy the Dominant G string.

Cons: What's not to like?

Professional

ease of use yet satisfying resistance
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Dominant is the string for you if you want some of the resistance of a wound gut string (eg Eudoxa) but without it going out of tune so much. Light tension Dominant is good on a bright sounding modern violin.

Cons: Can sound a bit dull after two months or so

Did you find this review helpful? Yes No
