Pierre I read at many review places on the web that Dominant sound metallic only at first, but once broken they get very mellow. Did you experienced something similar?
I have these strings for more than an year. Personally, I don't hear the metalic sound, but then again, I don't have anything to compare to. I'm going to try Zyex and then I will be able to feel/hear the difference.
Unfortunately, I didn't get up to the Sea of Galilee. We went to Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Caesarea Maritima and a number of sites out in the country. It was primarily an agricultural tour related to my job, but we did see many of the historic and religious sites, too.
That's cool that your U.S. visits were to Rhode Island. I'm originally from RI and live just over the line in Massachusetts now.
BTW, did you get to Galilee, RI? It's a seaside town/fishing port, appropriately enough. 🙂
No, I haven't been in Galilee. I was mainly in Smithfield (work), Providence. I also went to New Port (beautiful, magic place) and Boston.I wish I would have the chance to come again!
This is from Thomastik website concerning Dominant.
These strings have a highly flexible, multi-strand nylon core and cater for artists who feel uncomfortable with steel strings.
The sound of the Dominant string is full and mellow, yet rich in overtones. Its radiance, its ability to project sound without being metallic, comes to the fore both in arco and pizzicato.
Dominant strings should be changed at appropriate intervals to ensure continuity of tone color.
That is why I'm surprised at the metallic sound, maybe yours are too old Marina and Pierre can hear it? Just trying to guess 🙂 I don't have any experience to review them myself.
