These strings have a highly flexible, multi-strand nylon core and cater for artists who feel less comfortable using steel strings. The resounding success of Thomastik's Dominant range owes a lot to its similarity in tone and response to gut strings, without gut's disadvantages.
The sound of the Dominant string is full and mellow, yet rich in overtones. Its radiance, its ability to project sound without being metallic, comes to the fore both in arco and pizzicato. Other advantages are Dominant's effortless response to intricate fingering and its tuning stability even under extreme atmospheric conditions.
