Comparable in sound to gut, without gut's disadvantages.
These strings have a highly flexible, multi-strand nylon core. The resounding success of Dominant strings is due to its similarity in tone and response to gut strings, without gut's attendant drawbacks.
The sound is full and mellow, yet rich in overtones. Its ability to project sound without being metallic comes to the fore both in arco and pizzicato. Also offers effortless response to intricate fingering and tuning stability even under extreme humidity and temperature conditions. Dominant strings should be changed at appropriate intervals to ensure continuity of tone color.
We invite you to see why Dominant strings are called "The Reference Standard" and are used by professional players as well as students of all levels.
Steel or Wound E String?
The tin-plated E string in this set is modeled on the highly successful Peter Infeld E, and is a long-sought after addition to the Dominant string sets. The plain steel E string set produces a bright sound with great projection (D129S). The wound E string is designed to produce a slightly warmer tone, and is slightly more expensive but equally popular (D135S).
Loop-End or Ball-End E String?
This set features a ball-end E string, which is best suited for fine tuners with 2 prongs. Generally, most full-size instruments are set up with a single prong fine tuner, which is designed for a loop-end E string.
