Comparable in sound to gut, without gut’s disadvantages These strings have a highly flexible, multi-strand nylon core and cater for artists who feel uncomfortable with steel strings. The resounding success of our Dominant string owes so much to its similarity in tone and response to gut strings, without gut’s attendant drawbacks. The sound of the Dominant string is full and mellow, yet wealthy 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. But Dominant’s great thing about tone isn’t as long lasting as that of a steel string, a price the discerning musician shall be prepared to pay for this quality of sound. Dominant strings will have to be changed at appropriate intervals to verify continuity of tone color.
