Now available: DOMINANT PRO, the latest string revolution from Thomastik-Infeld
Since 1970, playing styles and sound concepts have developed continuously. With its latest string set DOMINANT PRO, Thomastik-Infeld responds to the desire of many players to expand the possibilities of the proven strings. The result is a modern string repertoire that preserves the DOMINANT basic character.
Due to their very wide dynamic range, Thomastik-Infeld DOMINANT PRO® strings are suitable for both orchestral musicians and soloists, as they can be played from piano (p) to fortississimo (fff) and also with high bow pressure. DOMINANT PRO® can also optimally assert itself against a large orchestra or quartet if necessary, but is also easy to play in piano (p). DOMINANT PRO® is the set which has the fastest and most direct attack within the Thomastik-Infeld viola string repertoire. The strings of the DOMINANT PRO® series have a dark, warm sound that embraces the player and his listeners. The superimposed slight sharpness brings a tingling contrast to the sound. Despite the large tonal color palette, DOMINANT PRO® creates a gradual transition that ideally combines the special timbres of the individual strings.
Inspired by the sound of a tube amplifier and with the help of the playing possibilities created by an innovative metal core, DOMINANT PRO® redefines past sound ideals. The movement has an airy-light sound character with pronounced, brilliant overtones and a pleasantly warm basic sound with a lot of structure. Highest modulation capability of the timbres and the sound structure: depending on the type of playing, the sound of the strings can be very brilliant or warm, round and saturated. The sound structure can be wonderfully modulated from fine to coarse-grained. The dynamic range goes from an airy-delicate pianissimo (pp) to a rich fortissimo (ff). DOMINANT PRO® is the set which has the fastest and most direct attack within the Thomastik-Infeld cello string repertoire. Especially at high bow speed, the strings develop their supporting resonance. Colorful and additionally particularly structured sound!
