I haven't tried Dominant strings in quite a while. I have been using Peter Infeld strings on my Panormo Violin, which strings sometimes seem a little heavy. So in an effort to lighten tension and make the instrument speak more easily, I decided to try the Dominants. Not very happy with the results in my case. One dimensional sound which does speak quickly and easily, but the lack of different colors and quality of sound is so obvious it sends me gratefully back to Peter Infeld violin strings.
I am sure the set is fine and the price is good, but the packaging is misleading to someone who doesn't know what it means. I am writing this to make sure no one else makes the same mistake that I did.
Important note: This set does not include an extra e-string! I have ordered sets in the past that included an extra e-string, so when I saw "Bonus E-string included" and "e2", I thought this set would include 2 e-strings. That is not the case. I am not sure what the "Bonus" is or why there is a superscript 2 after the "e". Maybe it is a better quality or maybe because it has a "removable ball end". I have no idea, as I am not a musician, just the mother of a violin student.
Happy with Concord Music. Never any problems.
