  • Dominant (Thomastik-Infeld, Austria)

    Available for violin 4/4, 3/4, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8 and 1/16.
    Available for viola.
    Available for cello 4/4, 3/4, and 1/2.

    The first synthetic-core string is still a top seller for violin and viola players.  The sound is brilliant and responsive.  When they are first installed, they have a rather metallic and edgy sound that softens with a few days of playing.  The E strings are available in steel or wound, though players often swap to a different. They last well, both physically and tonally.  Their small-sized strings are also very popular, for their longevity and softness under the fingers.

  • Obligato (Pirastro – Germany)

    Available for violin 4/4, 3/4 and 1/2.
    Available for viola.
    Available for cello.

    When Pirastro introduced Obligato, it was found to be one of the most exciting professional-quality strings on the market – with a price tag to match, but with the quality to justify it.  Of all the synthetic-core strings, the Obligato comes the closest to sounding like a gut-core string, especially Pirastro’s own Eudoxa.  Obligatos however, respond more quickly and are slightly more brilliant, though the overall quality is one of warmth and richness. Option of gold or steel E for violin.
    They are increasingly popular with professional and advanced student cellists who want a warm sound and a lower-tension string.
