What sets Dominant Pro apart?
Dominant Pro strings offer a darker, more focused sound with enhanced directness compared to regular Dominant strings. They still allow for a wide range of tonal colours, however. Incremental increases in string tension adapt to bow pressure for extended playing requirements without weighing down the instrument. These strings assert themselves strongly in orchestral settings and excel in chamber music with their dynamic range and modulation capabilities.
This set includes the following strings:
- DP41 A-string: With an airy, light, sound character and a warm foundation, this string delivers beautiful brightness and pronounced brilliance. Its timbre and sound structure can be modulated in various ways, from fine to coarse-grained. It’s also easy to play and quickly ready to use.
- DP42 D-string: This string is warmer than the A-string, characterised by an airy and light sound character. It creates a homogeneous connection to the G- and C-strings and is the prime example of a cello D-string that’s warm, round, and singing. Its sonorous sound in the upper registers is exceptional.
- DP43 G-string: This string has a dark, warm colour with a slightly metallic brilliance, and offers less modulation capacity than tungsten-wound G-strings. However, it has a very sustaining focus that enhances its overall sound.
- DP44 C-string: This string has an intense, dark, and particularly rich sound, with seductively growly notes that support the resonance of the whole set. Its beautiful bass-baritone sound is perfect for cello music.
