Set details

Since 1970, Dominant strings — with their iconic, revolutionary string design — have been a reliable partner for generations of diverse violin players and rank among the worlds most used violin strings. Honoring the sound qualities of the great old master-players, they deliver a vibrant tone due to their broad sound, dark core sound and brilliant overtones with a metallic sparkle. Using a balanced mix of bow speed and bow pressure on different positions of contact, they allow violinists to easily modulate a wide range of colors with a refined bow noise. This unique mix of sound qualities leads to an exceptionally true character that emphasizes a violin’s individual sound. Dominant’s concept of low tension relieves the instrument of undue stress and offers a sustainable string choice for old and precious violins. These comprehensive attributes have also made Dominant the reference standard for luthiers seeking to assess their instruments. With their wide range of sizes and tension options, Dominant strings work well with most instruments making them a universal choice for generations. The set 135 has a brilliant character with a higher metallic sound component and fast response. The sound quality of its bow noise is closer to plain gut strings, which is preferred by most Dominant players. The E-string included in the set is a non-whistling string, whose warm character nicely rounds up the sound of the whole set. The set 135A has an open and focused sound with a more refined bow noise leading to a generally warmer character of the set. It is possible to modulate even more colors due to a slightly less direct bow response. The set 135B has a brilliant and open sound with pronounced clarity. This set´s extremely corrosion resistant E-string supports these qualities by giving it an even faster response and direct sound character. The set 135BA has a direct and focused sound with a slightly warmer character compared to the set 135A. It has a great ability to modulate sound colors and good projection due to the amount of its refined bow noise.

Single string details

The set 135 includes the strings 130, 131, 132, 133.
The set 135A includes the strings 130, 131, 132A, 133.
The set 135B includes the strings 129, 131, 132, 133.
The set 135BA includes the strings 129, 131, 132A, 133.

NO. 129 | PLAIN
The E-string 129 has an excellent response with a clear and direct sound. The string is extremely resistant to corrosion and provides a brilliant sound and more colors in comparison to E-string 130.

NO.130 | ALUMINUM
The E-string 130 is a non-whistling string with an excellent response due to its aluminum winding. Its dark and warm sound with a soft feel pleases the ear and is more suitable for smaller halls due to its low volume and projection. Because of the string´s low tension (7.2kg) it doesn´t overburden the instrument.

NO.131 | ALUMINUM
The A-string 131 is a brilliant and bright string with high resilience to bow pressure and a direct response. With its tonal richness and broadness of sound it provides optimal support for the rest of the set. To achieve its full sound, the string needs to be allowed a few hours of break-in time.

NO. 132 | ALUMINUM
The D-string 132 has an excellent bow response and rich overtones with a pronounced metallic sound component. This leads to better projection and a good ability to carry sound in a hall, especially for very dark sounding instruments. The D-string is the leading string of a violin set and therefore influences the disposition of its neighbors. In the case of the D-string 132, the whole set becomes more open. Due to the string´s larger diameter, the upper saddle groove needs to be well adjusted.

NO.132A | SILVER
The D-string 132A has a warm sound with a refined bow noise and a wide range of sound colors. As a leading string it adds warmth and a darker tonal character to the whole set. The brilliance, the metallic sound component and the projection are less compared to the aluminum-wound model 132. Its diameter is much smaller than that of 132, being more similar to the diameter of the A-string.

NO. 133 | SILVER
The G-string 133 has a great dynamic range and excellent possibilities for modulation. This string boasts an excellent balance between warmth and brilliant overtones which makes it a great fit for a lot of instruments that require good projection.

Mix and match

Dominant Violin strings are offered in four different set combinations: 135, 135A, 135B, 135BA. To shape the sets’ characters to your individual needs, you can mix them with different single strings.

Within the Dominant product line

NO. 130MS | ALUMINUM
The E-string 130MS is aluminum-wound and made with a loop end for fine tuners with 1 hook. The design of this string is the same as the E-string 130 (which is made with a ball end and is included in the set 135 and 135A). This dark sounding and low-tensioned string provides stress relief for the violin´s top plate while delivering a faster and more responsive character.

NO. 129SN | TIN
The tin-plated E-string 129SN leads the set towards a more focused sound due to its very warm character and excellent bow response. It offers an exceptional projection capacity and is particularly well-suited to lower string positions. The excellent bow response and widened color range provides the player with bigger possibilities for modulation and therefore supports a soloistic performance of the set.

With other Thomastik-Infeld products

NO. DP01 | TIN
The tin-plated Dominant Pro E-string DP01 has a good resistance to bow pressure and supports the balance of brilliance and warmth of other strings in the set.

NO. DP01SN | TIN
The tin-plated Dominant Pro E-string DP01SN is a warm sounding string and because of its low tension it makes the instrument´s sound more open, offering a wider range of sound colors.
