Similar tone and response as gut, without gut's disadvantages.
Thomastik-Infeld Dominant Cello Strings are made for artists who feel uncomfortable with steel strings and feature a highly flexible, multi-strand nylon core. Dominant Cello Strings give you a sound that is full and mellow, yet rich in overtones. Its radiance and its ability to project sound without being metallic, comes to the fore both in arco and pizzicato. Other advantages are Dominant's effortless response to intricate fingering and its tuning stability even under extreme atmospheric conditions. But Dominant's beauty of tone is not as long lasting as that of a steel string, a price the discerning musician will be prepared to pay for this quality of sound. Dominant cello strings should be changed at appropriate intervals to ensure continuity of tone color.
