About This Item

Dominant Synthetic Core Strings
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 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, but we find, just as popular. 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.

About This Brand

Handmade Strings Since 1919 from Vienna, Austria

In 1919 violin maker Dr. Franz Thomastik and civil engineering specialist Otto Infeld founded the company, invented the steel string and caused a revolution in the music world. Suddenly the conventional gut string was challenged by a new string with the highest quality of tone, precision and reliability. It was received enthusiastically by virtuosi across the world.

The string makes the music. The diversity and beauty of the musical timbre depend upon, on the one hand, the type of material used for the core and on the other hand, the material spun around the core. For a perfect sound, Thomastik-Infeld has consistently chosen steel and nylon as the string core material for bowed and plucked instruments.

The highest standards are guaranteed by ongoing research in Thomstik-Infeld's own research lab engaging a team of highly specialized technicians. However, tone perfection is achieved primarily by the delicate touch of fingers and the highly qualified staff in the workshops: Every string at Thomastik-Infeld is wound and checked by hand.


Does It Matter Which Type of String You Put On Your Instrument? Absolutely!

Choosing the correct strings has a huge influence on its tone, ease of playing, and even its well-being: the best and most expensive instrument will only sound average if it is incorrectly strung, while an average instrument can transcend its own limitations with the correct choice of strings. As a matter of fact, switching to better strings is the shortest and easiest way to producing better sound.

From nine decades experience with string research, string development and string production we can safely say that while "the one perfect string for everyone" does not exist, the perfect string for your instrument, playing style and musical repertoire is most likely a Thomastik-Infeld. Up-to-date know-how and long experience enable us to bring out the best in each stringed instrument, revealing and enhancing its tone, color and quality.

Thomastik-Infeld offers a broad choice of products to fit every instrument, musical style, and playing situation. All products are handmade in Vienna to highest manufacturing standards, satisfying the most discriminating musician.
