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 them on 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 they generate.

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.
I experienced what I’ve heard from others that every violin is different. I tried other strings that whistled or wolfed. I even had my luthier check our my violin! When a friend told me to try Dominants I was pleased. No steely whistle or wolf! Glad to have found a string that is compatible with my violin.
