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.
Responsive, easy on the left hand - very nice strings. And Fiddlershop’s service is first-rate!
I wasn't certain that I would like the Dominant Pro strings as well as my other Dominant strings that have a crisp sound. But the more I play on the Pro strings the better they sound. They have a very rich and smooth sound that I love
Very Pleased Customer
The service was excellent and the product is everything it was supposed to be. Roy Martin
I like them
I like the sound!
These are very nice sounding strings on my Holstein Traditional Lord Wilton violin. You can feel a difference under your fingers with improved playability. They are a little slow to settle in, requiring daily tuning adjustments (and sometimes even within a practice session), but they tune very easily. And the sound is worth this minor inconvenience. Overall very happy with these strings and as always Fiddlershop service is exceptional.
