Thomastik Dominant
Violin Strings

Thomastik Dominant strings have a nylon core which gives them the warm, gut-like tone preferred by players worldwide. Aluminum E is wound, which makes it thicker and provides a less piercing tone. The response of this string is slower though. Silver D is thinner, and more responsive. Consider substituting your favorite E with a Dominant A, D and G. Gold plated E is like plain steel but has a slightly warmer tone. Gold E strings have a greater tendancy toward "Whistling"
