Great string set
Mariko 05.06.2018
I use this string in combination with Pirastro gold E string. I've started to use this combination of strings because I've read that many professionals also use this combination and that it fits most violins. As a beginner with not a lot of experience and/or money I don't feel like experimenting a lot. So I believed what I read and bought this one. And I'm perfectly happy with it!

I like that the sound of these strings, and that they last a long time. I change them every 6 months and play an hour a day. I don't have to re-tune much either. Just a slight turn with the fine tuner every day is enough. I will keep buying these strings in the future.
Also I very much like the ordering process with Thomann. It's easy to track the goods and the delivery is very fast which is awesome!

Good quality neutral strings
agiusti.edael 15.05.2024
Every time I tried different brands I always ended up going back to Dominant. They are good quality neutral strings, whihc means that they are bang in the middle in terms of color and tone. They don't make your violin sound warmer or brighter, they don't add any specific character of their own, they are perfectly balanced accross the tonal spectrum, which is the reason why there are so many Stradivari or Guarnieri violins out there strung with Dominant to let the natural tone of the violin shine through. They'll sound decent on a decent violin, beautifully in a beautiful violin etc. Only downside is the dreaded e, which is almost always replaced with a less harsh sounding e (I personally use Pirastro Gold Label)

Fine strings when you don’t know what to choose
JustAnotherAsian 03.12.2021
Dominants are used by many great violinists. I started with Tonica strings, switched to Warchal Amber and ended with Dominants (budget reasons). I’m still fan of Warchal Amber because the sound on my violin is very warm. However, Dominants have almost the same sound quality (little bit less warm) but are much cheaper.
The only thing I don’t like about this set is the E string, but probably is because of my amateur skills ;-)
Anyway, if you don’t know where to start when choosing strings, these strings are really good to start with. And depending on your own sound preferences you can switch to other type of strings by means of a string chart.

Good, but not for everyone
Gurteen 02.07.2019
These are good strings, even though my violin at the moment doesn't like them, but I don't blame that on the strings. It takes a while to get the right strings for a particular violin and my new violin just didn't sound good with them. (My old violin loved them). It's an expensive trial and error but finally settled on prim strings (bonus is they also are cheaper) so, yes.. very good strings.. but not for me at this time.
