The RED SERIES® sets: 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 make the string less bright, less responsive and more muffled; the thicker the string, the duller the sound. Our revolutionary new approach—never introduced before us—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). Until now, this result was reached only with harps where the scale of the strings is continuously varied. 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. You never heard a sound like this before, simply because before it did not exist.
RED SERIES SINGLE LOW G
Who never dreamed of tuning the ukulele in low G, without using a fourth wound string type? Wound strings indeed, together with the quality of sound power shows problems that in ukulele are very considered:
- shorter lifetime than the treble strings
- sound power too bright and intrusive compared to the plastic treble strings
- excessive sustain
- noise caused by the fingers of the left hand
- rapid oxidation of the metal wire in case of acid sweat
The only alternative solution used today is the use of a fluocarbon string. Its performance, however, is never entirely satisfactory because a low string, to be really good, must not only use materials with high density but also a bit flexible. Fluorocarbon is unfortunately a very stiff material. Density, is indeed the secret for the sound quality of a low string. We are happy to announce that we managed to won 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 on frets better than the fluorocarbon strings fully integrated with that of the upper treble strings. Main Features:
- 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 hapen with the Nylguts.
- Elasticity/Elongation: like the common white Nylgut!
- Performances: better than the first elastic version! They do not breacks 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 like hapen with the fluocarbon G strings
- Density: about twice than standard white Nylgut
