Dominants are a long-time favorite of a lot of Double Bass players due to their gut string-like character with more stable intonation, and less susceptibility to changes due to temperature and humidity.

They have a highly flexible, multi-strand Perlon (like nylon) center core, with a very smooth steel flat-wound outer winding. They are comfortable under the hands, and very smooth for excellent bowability.

For pizz, Dominants are pretty responsive for a stranded perlon core, with a nice "thump" and a lower level of sustain.

Dominant Bass strings are quite desirable for bowing, with a warm, full-bodied timbre. They work well for traditional music, as they are good for emulating a bit more of an "old school" vibe of gut strings, with their traditionally shorter sustain characteristic.

These Dominant strings are listed here in a Solo gauge, for solo repertoire (or down-tuning to standard pitch to approximate a "light" gauge.) The standard "Orchestral" version of these strings is on a separate page. We sell these strings in full sets as well as in single (individual) strings for your convenience.

Size: 3/4 (the most common full size Double Bass)
