Thomastik Dominant Strings
This is the original and best known synthetic cored string and regarded as the reference standard for this type of string. These strings are well adapted to achieve excellent playing properties on any instrument.
Dominant strings give a warm and clear sound which closely approximates to a traditional covered gut string. Tonally stable and easy to play on they suitable for all players beginner to professional.
NB The set 135 with aluminium wound E is the traditional and well known version of these strings. The aluminium winding being a more suitable choice for learners as it is easier to produce a clear sound without whistles or overtones.
Various E string options are available which will appeal to advanced players for greater clarity and projection.
