Thomastik Dominant Viola Strings have a highly flexible, multi-strand synthetic core, giving the strings their tonal warmth and the feel of gut strings.

Dominant Viola Strings are impervious to changes in humidity, have stable intonation and long life. Their sound is soft, clear and rich in overtones. Dominants are recognised by teachers and students across the globe to be the benchmark strings. They have a distinct tone and are easily playable.

The Dominant C, G and D strings are very popular to mix with other brands such as Larsen and Jargar Classic.
