Thomastik-Infeld Dominant Violin Strings
We think we can safely say that Thomastik's Dominant Violin strings are the world's most popular strings. They're the holdover, mainstay, 'Mr. Dependable' violin string. As the old saying goes: “If it ain't broke…don't fix it!"
The Dominant violin strings come in 3 gauges: Weich (which means 'light'), medium, and stark (heavy). They are made with a nylon core and come with several different choices for E strings. Even still, many prefer to order a different E (like a Gold Label E ). The Gold plated E looks and feels like a steel E, but sounds warmer than one. The Aluminum E is a wound string, a tad bit fatter, but warmer than any of the other E strings (of the Dominant brand. In general (with violin strings) players tend to prefer ordering a Silver D as opposed to a regular D. The Silver will be a tad thinner gauge and more responsive. If you are new to Dominants we recommend just a medium base set. Once you have these on, you can play them in and see how you like them and then later on, with your next set, change a string or two to accommodate your specific style of playing preferences and your violin.
Another alternative string set (similar) to the Dominant brand is Pirastro's Tonica strings. We are running a special 'packaged deal promo' to buy and try both sets at the same time.
