Dominant Nylon-Core Strings -- comparable in sound to gut, without gut's disadvantages!
These strings have a highly flexible, multi-strand nylon core and are perfect for artists who feel uncomfortable with steel strings. The huge popularity of the Dominant string is based on 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, its 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 extreme atmospheric conditions. 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 color.
