VC GIVEAWAY | Win 1 of 10 Thomastik-Infeld DOMINANT PRO® for viola (NO.DP200) String Sets


To help celebrate the international release of the new Thomastik-Infeld DOMINANT PRO® for viola (NO.DP200) string set, The Violin Channel, in conjunction with our good friends at Thomastik-Infeld and Connolly Music, is giving away 10 DOMINANT PRO® for viola (NO.DP200) string sets.

The Thomastik-Infeld DOMINANT PRO® for viola (NO.DP200) string set has been engineered to achieve a very fast and direct response, making them a great fit for professional orchestral musicians and soloists alike. The new strings can take high bow pressure and enable the player to convey a range of dynamics and tonal colors. They create a smooth transition that ideally combines the specific timbres of the individual strings.

The line is available for 4/4 violas in medium tension and includes the following strings:


The DOMINANT PRO® NO.DP21 A-string is made out of a carbon steel core with chrome outer material. It is easy to play and blends easily with the other strings. It has a long lifespan and a very minimal nasal component.


The DOMINANT PRO® NO.DP22 D-string is made out of a synthetic core with chrome outer material. It is building a harmonious bridge between the A and G-string with its balance of brilliance and dark timbre typical of the viola.


The DOMINANT PRO® NO.DP23 G-string is made out of a synthetic core with silver outer material. It has a direct response and creates a smooth transition to the C-string with a strong sound and slightly metallic component.


The DOMINANT PRO® NO.DP24 C-string is made out of a synthetic core with Tungsten/Silver outer material. It has a fast response and can maintain a large sound volume. Projection is ensured by metallic overtones.


You can find more information about the DOMINANT PRO® for viola (NO.DP200) string set at, including string descriptions, sound charts, and videos. You will also be able to learn more about the DOMINANT PRO® for violin (NO.DP100) string set, as well as the DOMINANT PRO® for cello (NO.DP400) string set.
