DOMINANT PRO Platinum-Plated Violin E String DP01PT, alternative string
Of all DOMINANT PRO® E-strings, the platinum plated E has the greatest projection capacity. It combines the clarity of the gold-plated E with the response of the tin-plated E. Like gold-plated version, the platinum-plated E is also extremely corrosion-resistant, but has less of a tendency to whistle and offers more brilliance in comparison. Due to its outstanding projection capability and clarity, it can be unsuitable for sensitive ears.
As a result of its larger diameter (0.268 mm as opposed to the others with 0.265 mm), the platinum-plated offers more resistance to bow pressure and is also better suited to a very low string action. When using a fine tuner with DP01PT, make sure that the sharp edges are rounded down.
