Dominant Strings

Thomastik Dominant strings possess a warm, round sound quality, are extremely durable, and have a fast, easy response; usually right from the moment you put them on your instrument.

Why the price increases?

With the dollar stronger against the Euro, why doesn't the price decrease? Someone is gouging the consumer. But I do purchase these strings like so many others.

You can't go wrong with Dominants

I had these strings on my student violin and professional violin, for some time on and off trying to see the differences, and these are direct, warm, fairly soft, and last for around 4 months of heavy playing before "degrading". I'd recommend them to anyone regardless of style.

Beautiful Sounding Strings

These low tension strings are perfect for an antique violin that needs a "middle of the road" balance between tension and sound production. Thomastik has pulled it off with these strings. I've tried many string combos to see what works on my fiddle and none produce the sound Dominants make. I order the standard set with the chrome steel E and it works beautifully. My violin goes mad if I try and change to any other brand. I have tried various E strings with them and the Pirastro Gold E works but can tend to mute the lower strings while making the A string a bit shrill. The Goldbrokat E made my A string warmer but brightened up the G and D. The Larsen Tzigane E is nice but tends to make the A string too warm while making the others louder. I did try the Tin plated Dominant E but it is too thin and shrill. The Chrome steel Dominant E is the best fit for this set, at least on my violin. I still will use the Gold E or Goldbrokat in a pinch but the Dominant chrome steel E seems to bring out the best in the set. It's warm, powerful, thick under the fingers and makes all the other strings sound as they should. Who knew? I didn't even need to switch out the E after all!
