  • Description

    The RED SERIES® sets offer a unique look and a strong, consistent sound. Until now, it was necessary to increase a string’s gauge to reach lower frequencies. But increasing the string’s diameter also increases internal dampening. That makes the string less bright, less responsive and more muffled; the thicker the string, the duller the sound. Aquila's revolutionary new approach changes the specific weight of the material, increasing it progressively to leave the gauge unchanged.

     

    The result is amazing—the instrument sounds brighter, more powerful and more responsive through the entire range of the fret board. The strings also maintain their intonation better (because thicker strings need to be fretted harder, pulling them farther out of tune). RED SERIES® sets provide superior performance over traditional strings for musicians who love clear, sharp sounds and powerful voicing across the full scale of the instrument.

    Density, is indeed the secret for the sound quality of a low string. We are happy to announce that we overcame a difficult technological challenge (already tried by many others but without success): unwound fourth strings now finally exist. From now, you will finally be able to tune your ukulele in Low G ensuring sound power, sound quality and intonation.

    • Technical solution adopted: Nylgut made firstly elastic and then added with red copper powder in order to increase the density to about twice that of standard white Nylgut

    • Color: red-brown

    • Surface: slightly rough; this texture has eliminated the squeak that sometime happen with the Nylgut.

    • Elasticity/Elongation: like the common white Nylgut!

    • Performances: better than the first elastic version! They do not break under stretching. fast and stable tuning!

    • Intonation: accurate past the 12th fret

    • Pressing strongly the string on the frets, the note does not became sharper

    • It is not necessary to file the nut slot wider to accommodate it as with the fluocarbon G strings

    • Density: about twice that of standard white Nylgut
