I need to buy a string and my instructor has recommended me to buy a dominant string. I noticed there are at least two types,

  • Thomastik Dominant 135B Violin String Set 4/4 Size
  • Thomastik Dominant 135 Violin String Set 4/4 Size

what is the difference?

1 Answer 1


The difference between the two is in the composition of the ball-end of the E-string:

Thomastik Dominant violin strings are available with aluminum wound ball end E strings (set 135), with chrome steel ball end E strings (set 135B), and with chrome steel loop end E strings (set 135BMS)
