The Essence of Dominant
Dominant strings are comparable in sound to gut, without the accompanying disadvantages. These strings have a highly flexible, multi-strand nylon core and cater to artists who feel uncomfortable with steel strings. The resounding success of Dominant strings owes a lot to its similarity in tone and response to gut strings, without gut's attendant drawbacks.

New Possibilities
The sound of the Dominant string is full and mellow, yet rich in overtones. Its radiance, the 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 tuning stability even under extreme atmospheric conditions. But Dominant's beauty of tone is not as long lasting as that of a steel string, a price the discerning musician will be prepared to pay for this quality of sound. Dominant strings should be changed at appropriate intervals to ensure continuity of tone colour.
