How is Dominant Pro different from regular Dominant Strings
The Dominant Pro has a familiar tone that players can immediately recognize from the regular Dominant set. However, the Pro version provides greater volume, wider dynamic range, and a finer color pallette to draw from.
How is Dominant Pro different from regular Peter Infeld (PI100)
Many players and luthiers have adopted Peter-Infeld as a stronger, more powerful, more direct, more nuanced alternative to classic Dominant strings (also higher tension). Dominant Pro is ideal for instruments and players seeking these same performance enhancements that might benefit from an overall lower string tension (similar to classic Dominant strings). If your instrument sounds too constrained or thin with PI strings, Dominant Pro strings may help the instrument vibrate more freely and with a fuller tone.
