Dominant Synthetic Core Strings
Comparable in sound to gut, without gut’s disadvantages.
These strings have a highly flexible, multi-strand nylon core. The resounding success of Dominant strings is due to their similarity in tone and response to gut strings, without gut’s attendant drawbacks.
The sound is full and mellow, yet rich in overtones. Its ability to project sound without being metallic comes to the fore both in arco and pizzicato. Also offers an effortless response to intricate fingering and tuning stability even under extreme humidity and temperature conditions. Dominant strings should be changed at appropriate intervals to ensure continuity of tone color.
We invite you to see why Dominant strings are called “The Reference Standard” and are used by professional players as well as students of all levels.
