Thomastik Dominant Violin Unpackaged String Set with Steel, Loop-End E String 4/4 size, Medium Gauge _________________________________
Steel or Wound E String?
The plain steel E string in this set produces a bright sound with great projection. The wound E string is designed to produce a slightly warmer tone, and is slightly more expensive, but we find, equally popular. Set with the wound E string: D135S
Loop-End or Ball-End E String? This set features a loop-end E string, which is best suited for fine tuners with 1 prong or a hook for the end of the E string. Ball-end E strings are designed to be used with 2-prong fine tuners. Generally, most full size instruments are set up with a single prong fine tuner, which is designed for a loop-end E string.

Description
Thomastik Dominant, or simply called Dominant strings possess a warm, round sound quality, are extremely durable, andhave a fast, easy response; usually right from the moment you put them on your instrument. This has made them one of the most popular strings for almost every violinist and violist, intermediate level to professional. Many teachers recommend them to their students over brighter steel strings because of the warmth and depth of the sound they generate.

History of the Thomastik-Infeld Company
In 1919, 2 former officers of the Austrian monarchy, Dr. Franz Thomastik, and Otto Infeld co-founded the Thomastik-Infeld Stringcompany and created a brand new steel string. At the time, violinists and violists were playing on gut core strings. The conventional gut string was suddenly challenged by strings that could produce the warm, pleasing sound of gut, with a durability and playability never seen before. Very soon, almost every player was using these strings, and they still hold up to the highest standards even today.
