Thomastik Dominant Violin String Set with Wound, Ball End E String, 1/16 size, Medium gauge

Steel or Wound E String?
The steel core, aluminum wound E string in this set is designed to produce a slightly warmer tone than a plain steel E string, which is brighter but offers more projection. The wound is slightly more expensive. Set with the steel E string: D129S

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.

Description
Thomastik Dominant, or simply called Dominant strings possess a warm, round sound quality, are extremely durable, and have a fast, easy response; usually right from the moment you put themon 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 the 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.
