For 100 years, Thomastik-Infeld has been producing fine orchestral and fretted instrument strings in our Vienna factory. Every set we make has been precision-engineered and exhaustively tested until we were satisfied that they fulfilled our intentions - and live up to your musical expectations as well. Our Dominant violin strings--widely recognized as the "reference standard"--are legendary for their distinctive tone and playability. Made with a highly flexible, multi-strand synthetic core, Dominants provide the tonal warmth of gut strings yet are impervious to humidity changes, allowing for stable intonation and long life. The Dominant sound is soft, clear, and rich in overtones. Choose Thomastik-Infeld and choose 100 years of experience!
