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.

Medium tension strings. For other tensions please click the link above.

NB The set 135 with aluminium wound E is the traditional and well known version of these strings. The aluminium winding being a more suitable choice for learners as it is easier to produce a clear sound without whistles or overtones. The set 135B features a plain Chrome plated steel E which will appeal to advanced players for its clarity and projection.

Steel E set (135B) E has a loop end with a separate ball to fit if required.

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.

Good old Dominant

Pros: Reliability

Cons: None

Other: I have used dominant strings since learning the violin at school over 60 years ago and whilst there may be others with a sound that benefits a virtuoso but for most players they are perfect and reliable

Grade 8+

Good value for money. Easy to play on.

Pros: Used these strings to upgrade an old violin that I learned on over forty years ago! Wanted to have it playable and on stand by. Really enjoyed my old student violin. These strings were very easy to play on. Haven’t played on a set with fine tuners for a long while. Once the strings had settled my violin stayed in tune with very little adjustments making it easy/convenient to pick up/put down frequently throughout the day.

Cons: Sound nothing like as good as my gut strings on my other violin however great for playing fiddle music. Improved this particular instrument.
