THE SOUND DEVELOPMENT OF DOMINANT PRO
Immediately after stringing, the DOMINANT PRO set DP100 sounds bell-like and fills the room. In the first three to five hours of playing, the strings feel a touch softer and sound a little warmer than they do for the rest of their lifespan. Then the strings open up, sound more brilliant and open, and feel a little tighter beneath the fingers. The bell-like sound that fills the room decreases slightly in the last third of the strings’ life and they sound more direct – from this point on, the tonal character of the strings barely changes.
Dominant PRO D String, Silver Wound
The D-string is the violin’s leading string. Accordingly, it has a very strong influence on the remaining strings in all aspects of play. The tonal lifespan of the entire violin string set is chiefly dependent upon this string.
With the help of a novel silver alloy, we were able to combine the advantages of a silver string with those of an aluminum string in the DOMINANT PRO NO.DP03A while also eliminating their drawbacks. What this means is that the DOMINANT PRO D-string offers a very refined bow noise, brilliance and pronounced sound color with a good deal of modulation capacity. This combination guarantees an ideal ability to sustain sound and projection in halls. Unlike conventional silver D-strings, it has a more direct bow response and does a better job of suppressing wolf tones in combination with the new G-string. The diameter is somewhat smaller than that of a synthetic A-string. This makes the string pleasant to play and means that it feels at once both supple and resilient beneath the left and right hand.
