Thomastik DP03A Dominant Pro D Volin String
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.
*The D-string is the violin’s leading string. Accordingly, it has a very strong influence on the remaining strings in all aspects of play. The tonal lifespan of the entire violin string set is chiefly dependent upon this string. 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 [4.5 kg], while also eliminating their drawbacks.
What this means is that 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 and 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.
