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 the Dominant string owes a lot 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 rich in overtones. Its radiance and 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 unfavourable atmospheric conditions.
