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.
Ratings & Reviews
Dominant strings with Gold Label E
Great combination of strings. It produces warm and clear sound. I've been using these strings for a long time and it has never disappointed me.
Is my E string here yet?
I bought a set of Dominant strings for my 3/4 violin. It came without the E string. Shar told me that they were having difficulty getting them, and asked if I was willing to back order. I said yes. A few months later I was asked if I was still willing to wait (which I appreciated). I said yes. It’s been several months, and I’m still waiting. Haven’t heard anything more since then. I assume Shar is still having trouble acquiring the 3/4 Dominant E string? Would you please let me know what comparable 3/4 E string I should purchase? Will I have to purchase an entire set to get it? I don’t even remember whether or not I already paid for the string, since it was supposed to come in the set. Thanks for any help you can give.
Great combo set
I recently wrote a review on the Dominant set with the chrome steel E and while I like that E string, it doesn't do my antique violin justice with the Dominants like the Pirastro Gold E. It really does balance out the set to make it warmer and more smooth sounding (gut like). I use a Weich or Soft A and it's perfect!
An Ouststanding String Combination!
These strings are perfect for my violin! The warmth and clarity of the Dominant Strings is combined with the brightness and volume of the Pirastro E String. The perfect Violin string combination brought together in one perfect string package!
