DOMINANT PRO Gold-Plated Violin E String DP01AU, alternative string
This gold-plated E-string generates a very warm, clear sound that simultaneously conveys brilliance. In addition, the string is extremely corrosion-resistant. In contrast to DP01, the sound is as clear as a bell and the individual sound colors can be clearly and individually distinguished. Combined with its great capacity for projection, this allows it to assert itself very well in orchestras or in chamber music as required.
If the system as a whole (instrument, rosin, bow hair and bowing) has a tendency to whistle, DP01AU may not be the ideal choice. In this case we recommend the standard E, DP01. As always, when using a fine tuner hook, it is crucial to make sure that it is always “deburred” ( the sharp edges are filed down), otherwise the string at the fine tuner end can break more easily than normal tin-plated strings.
