Thomastik DP01PT Dominant Pro E Volin String Platinum Plated
Thomastik Dominant Pro for Violin
Since 1970 the playing styles and ideas surrounding sound have been expanded. With Dominant Pro, we are not aiming to change the basic character of Dominant, but rather to offer an additional, contemporary repertoire of the biggest advantages of Dominant Pro and Dominant strings.
What do Dominant Pro and Dominant have in common?
Both have very low string tensions and are therefore suitable for the majority of new and old instruments without putting too much strain on them. They have a similar capacity for modulation, lots of sound colour, very good tuning stability, and a very good bow response.
*Of all the E-strings described, DP01PT [diameter 0.268 mm, 8.2 kg, removable ball end] has the greatest projection capacity. It combines the clarity of the gold-plated DP01AU with the response of the tin-plated DP01. Like DP01AU, DP01PT is also extremely corrosion-resistant, but has less of a tendency to whistle and offers more brilliance in comparison. Due to its outstanding projection capability and clarity, it can be unsuitable for sensitive ears.
As a result of its larger diameter (0.268 mm as opposed to DP01 and DP01AU with 0.265 mm), it offers more resistance to bow pressure and is also better suited to a very low string position.
Tip: players must also be careful when using a fine tuner hook with DP01PT , and always ensure that the sharp edges are rounded down.
