Thomastik TI and Rondo Strings
Does anyone here have any experience playing on the Thomastik luthier line strings (TI and/or Rondo)? If so, how did you find them relative to the Dominants? Thanks in advance - this is much appreciated.
I don't much like Dominants any more, even though I used them throughout my childhood before there were other choices.
My daughters violin was less than optimal with EP
I only use Rondo now on my violin, and so does my wife. A very neutral string that does not try to add texture to the violin's core sound, with a consistency and predictable response of Dominant along with the power and quick break-in time of their Vision line.
I have played on Rondos for a year, and I’m in agreement with everything aforementioned. I didn’t substitute the E string; it seems to complement the other strings in my opinion. It’s fairly powerful too. I find the G string allows for clarity in the higher positions (actually, all the strings are good in this regard). I’m not sure if these strings are as warm as Dominants; they certainly are very focused as opposed to fuzzy. In addition, I have found them to very stable in terms of pitch.
I use the Rondos as well on my modern Italian violin (can be purchased online at Connolly music) and love them dearly. The maker of the violin recommended them to me.
