To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have taught violin full time for around 20 years and have come back home to dominant. I have tried everything between and I can only say that Dominant is the most stable, clear and long lasting string available. IMO
Insane difference in my student violin (Stentor Student 2) over the factory strings. After letting the strings settle in for a day and tuning them to pitch, it sounds like a completely different violin. I also found that the strings are far more precise in their pitch gradients, which is useful if you're learning as it prevents you from being careless.
I'd describe the sound of these strings as "pure". It's clean, and balanced, it doesn't sound particularly warm, maybe more on the brighter side, but overall very neutral.
I was about to drop thousands on a new violin but I decided to try and change my strings first and what a difference it made to the sound quality! So I will hold off on a new violin purchase for a while longer. Phew.
I'm not a great violin player, my violin is a Stentor Verona. When I bought the violin it was strung with Pirastro Tonica, which are great strings, providing a great crisp and bright sound, for my needs (Irish Fiddle). However, I decided to re-string with Dominants and Wow my violin was transformed, what a great strong, still bright yet deeper tone. I realise that you must consider strings, bows, rosin, etc, etc, for your particular violin and needs but, I would highly recommend Dominants to bring on the sound quality of a low priced violin.
The ball of the e string is broken and Amazon replied that I cannot replaced it with a new now. Instead, they need me to return all of the strings which is very time consuming as I have already put them into the violin. The whole experience is irritating and disappointing. I'll have to buy an e string from another company now:)
