On my Heberlein violin, I have tried many strings. Dominants/Pros, Evah Pirazzis/Gold, Visions Ti/solo, PIs with Plat E and now Dyanmos. All I can say is wow! Major improvements in the upper registers and it tonal color/clarity. Playing in the higher positions also became a bit easier as well. The best is the responsiveness I'd say. I put them on the first day, played a little and came back after 2 days and they seemed a bit better. Only downside is the price but now I don't feel like i need to upgrade my violin anymore. Just a shoutout to Dynamos! Makes me want to practice more.
I am considering buying a set of Thomastik Dominants for my viola but I'm not sure which is the correct for the size of my instrument. It is a 16'' viola with a 37 cm string length (measured from the nut to the bridge). Which is the correct set? Is it the no. 141 one or the no. 4125? The measurements in the manufacturer's refer to the instrument's back size of to string length? Any ideas?
Hello, I have old violin with atypical construction. Inside is handwrite in german language, I can read only "Patent", "Dr. F. Thomastik", "Jakob Buchner", "Wien". Can someone say about this violin? About Jakob Buchner? Or about relation with Dr. F. Thomastik (father of Thomastik-Infeld)? Can someone read whole text? Thank you
Time for new strings! The Thomastik Dominants sounded great. The Zyex sounded great. But in the spirit of experimentation I want to try something new. I was going to try the Peter Infelds. ..then I saw the price. Has anyone tried the Roby Lakatos? I was a little put off by the packaging...but decided I wasn't going to let that be the deciding factor. They are not cheap either...but not quite as pricey as the PI.
