Frequently bought together:


Dominants are a long-time favorite of a lot of players due to their gut string-like character with more stable intonation, and less susceptibility to changes due to temperature and humidity.

They have a highly flexible, multi-strand Perlon (like nylon) center core, with a very smooth steel flat-wound outer winding. They are comfortable under the hands, and very smooth for excellent bowability.

For pizz, they are pretty responsive for a stranded perlon core, with a nice "thump" and a lower level of sustain.

They are quite desirable for bowing, with a warm, full-bodied timbre. They work well for traditional music, as they are good for emulating a bit more of an "old school" vibe of gut strings, with their traditionally shorter sustain characteristic.

The standard orchestral gauge strings have a medium tension, and Dominant strings are also available in a Solo gauge (on a separate page), for solo repertoire (or down-tuning to standard pitch to approximate a "light" gauge.) We sell the strings in full sets as well as in single (individual) strings for your convenience. See the drop down menus above for pricing.
