Description

The ancestors of the present-day Dogal tradition were well-known already in the middle of the last century. The Brocco family, natives of Venice and present in the region of Veneto since the 1866 with a chain of music shops, agents of prestigious names such as Bechstein and Steinway and in close contact with world-famous artists, considered the unavailability of strings for bowed instruments on the market.

However, the production of the first Dogal violin strings began in 1950 after a separate company had been created expressly for this purpose. The steel core of each string was covered with a series of windings, the last of which - a breakthrough at the time - was flat-sectioned, thereby offering a smooth surface to the touch. The resulting interaction with the bowhair gave a sweet, quality sound with considerable volume. It was November 1952, and the Dogal "Linea Verde" (green line) was introduced to the market, the first of what would become a series of four.

Even though over 40 years have passed since the founding of the company, most of the production process is still done by hand, with minimal tolerances over the full length of each string, as only the masterful hands of skilled string makers can produce.
