Short Description

50 years after the debut of Dominant, Thomastik-Infeld presents its latest string revolution: DOMINANT PRO 

With this new product, Thomastik-Infeld are not aiming to change the basic character of DOMINANT, but rather to offer an additional, contemporary repertoire of strings.

  • Exceptionally powerful
  • Good balance of brilliance and warmth
  • Broad range of sound colours
  • 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


Individual string character:

Synthetic core – Aluminum wound

Vibrating string length: 32,5cm | 12,8"

The DOMINANT PRO A-string DP02 with Aluminum winding was designed to have more tonal core and energy in the keynote. Its metallic component is slightly lower, but it still projects sound beautifully and also responds very well in piano pianissimo ppp (very quiet) with a consistently high capacity for modulation. The string is very colourful, possesses a good balance between brilliance and warmth, an excellent response as well as good resistance to bow pressure.

When combined with the E-string DP01, it sounds even broader and more richly coloured.


What makes Dominant Pro so special?

DOMINANT PRO sound darker, more focused and respond more directly than Dominant strings. Despite their direct response, they give musicians the possibility to create a broad range of sound colours. The string tensions have been increased by an incremental amount to adapt the resistance to bow pressure to suit the extended playing requirements of musicians without overburdening their instrument.

DOMINANT PRO strings assert themselves very well against the sound of an entire orchestra and with corresponding dynamics and a capacity for modulation, they also offer excellent possibilities when used in chamber music.

Immediately after stringing, the DOMINANT PRO set DP100 sounds bell-like and fills the room. In the first three to five hours of playing, the 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.


"I am completely fascinated by the tonal warmth, balance and immense power radiated by these strings. I can warmly recommend these violin strings to all instrumentalists of every level."

Anton Sorokow, Violinist & First Concertmaster - Vienna Symphony Orchestra
