Thomastik-Infeld Dominant Pro DP100 Violin Strings
DOMINANT PRO® The strings you should PRO for

Excellent PROjection. PROmpt response. PROactive modulation. 

Immediately after stringing, the string set sounds bell-like and fills the room. In the first three to five hours of playing, the Dominant Pro DP100 Violin Strings feel a touch softer and sound a little warmer than they do for the rest of their lifespan. Then the strings open up, sound more brilliant and open, and feel a little tighter beneath the fingers. The bell-like sound that fills the room decreases slightly in the last third of the strings’ life and they sound more direct – from this point on, the tonal character of the strings barely changes.

  • Exceptionally powerful
  • Good balance of brilliance and warmth
  • Broad range of sound colors
  • Supports the radiance of the instrument in the long term
  • Reacts immediately with a focused sound core
  • A sound that fills the room
  • Bell-like tonal character
  • High resistance to bow pressure
  • Suitable for soloists
  • Very high level of dynamics (can be played very quietly and very loudly)

  1. The plain DOMINANT PRO® E-string DP01 with a core of carbon steel is tin-plated. A protective layer of nickel is placed between the outer coating of tin and the steel core. Thus increasing the corrosion resistance compared with conventional tin-plated strings!

    The string has a very good response, barely whistles, and is well-balanced in its brilliance and warmth. It supports the equilibrium with the A-string and promotes its capacity to carry sound. A specially developed wire treatment makes the sound soft enough that it does not have a screeching effect. It is also brilliant enough that it offers sufficient radiance, projection and resistance to bow pressure. Despite its small diameter, the string sounds broad and brilliant even without applying much pressure.

  2. The DOMINANT PRO® A-string DP02 with aluminum winding was designed to have more tonal core and energy in the sound foundation.

    Its metallic component is slightly lower, but it still projects sound beautifully and also responds very well in pianopianissimo (ppp) with a consistently high capacity for modulation. The string is very colorful, possesses a good balance between brilliance and warmth, an excellent response as well as good resistance to bow pressure. The NO.DP02 sounds even broader and more richly colored when combined with the E-string DP01.

  3. With the help of a novel silver alloy, we were able to combine the advantages of a silver string with those of an aluminum string in the DOMINANT PRO® DP03A, while also eliminating their drawbacks. 

    Thus, the DOMINANT PRO® D-string offers a very refined bow noise, brilliance and pronounced sound color with a good deal of modulation capacity. This combination guarantees an ideal ability to sustain sound and projection in halls. Unlike conventional silver D-strings, it has a more direct bow response. It also does a better job of suppressing wolf tones in combination with the new G-string. The diameter is somewhat smaller than that of a synthetic A-string. This makes the string pleasant to play and means that it feels at once both supple and resilient beneath the left and right hand.

  4. The DOMINANT PRO® G-string DP04 has a very low metallic component, less bow noise, and a more direct response. 

    It is a good fit for the majority of new and old instruments. This is ideally suited for soloists, chamber musicians, and use in orchestras. Due to the slightly increased string tension it also offers increased resistance to bow pressure without putting too much strain on the instrument. The new string feels soft beneath the fingers but stands out with its high resistance to bow pressure with an extreme capacity to sustain sound and outstanding radiance.
