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.
The DOMINANT PRO A-string NO.DP02 with aluminum winding was designed to have more tonal core and energy in the keynote. Its metallic component is slightly lower, but it still projects sound beautifully and also responds very well in pianopianissimo ppp with a consistently high capacity for modulation. The string is very colorful, possesses a good balance between brilliance and warmth, an excellent response as well as good resistance to bow pressure. When combined with the E-string NO.DP01, it sounds even broader and more richly colored.
