Composite core string technology is the string making technology of the future, today. Strings of this type tends to be among the most expensive. However Pirastro offers Violino, and Thomastik has Vision which are composite core, but priced for a budget.
|While Thomastik Dominant has dominated violin string sales for years, the names of new string choices have fallen on deaf ears in the United States. There are many other strings on the market today that are good alternatives toDominant. Strings are such an important factor in the tone production of an instrument, serious players need to experiment to find the optimum choice for their instrument.

A new string type-Strings have historically been made from sheep gut. Then came steel and synthetic string making innovations. In the 1990's, composite materials were being used for the first time. This new category of string has many of the same advantages of synthetic core strings, but often an extended life span. This feature is due to less tension lossduring the life of the string.
