RED SERIES®

A unique feeling and a strong, consistent sound. Until now, it was necessary to increase the gauge of a string for it to produce a lower-pitched note. 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. Our revolutionary new approach — unique to us — changes the specific weight of the material, increasing it progressively to leave the gauge almost unchanged.
red red
The result is amazing: instruments sound 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 further out of tune. RED SERIES® sets provide superior performance over traditional strings for musicians who love bright 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.

SINGLE UKULELE RED SERIES FOR THE LOW G TUNING & OTHER UKE SETS

low4
Who never dreamed of tuning the ukulele in low G, without using a fourth wound string type? As well affecting the overall sound quality of the ukulele, wound strings introduce a variety of other problems:
  • a shorter lifetime than the treble strings
  • sound power that is 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 caused by the acidity of the sweat.
The only alternative solution used today is the use of a fluocoarbon string. Its performance, however, is never entirely satisfactory as for a low string to be really good, it must not only use materials of a high density but also some flexibility and fluorocarbon is unfortunately a very stiff material. Density is in fact the secret of quality sound in a low string and we are happy to announce that we managed to overcome this difficult technological challenge (tried by many others but without success). Unwound fourth strings available single packaged now finally exist! Now, with our new RED SERIES® stri ngs you can finally tune your ukulele to Low G with the certainty of powerful sound quality and a superior intonation across the frets that is fully integrated with that of the upper treble strings. Main Features:
  • The technical solution adopted was firstly to make the Nylgut elastic and then add 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 occurs with the Nylgut strings.
  • Elasticity/Elongation: consistent with white Nylgut!
  • Performances: better than the first elastic version! They do not break under tension providing rapid, stable tuning!
  • Intonation: accurate past the 12th fret
  • Pressing the string firmly down on the frets does not cause the note to sharpen.
  • It is not necessary to file the nut slot wider to accommodate our RED SERIES® string, as was necessary with the previous fluorocarbon G strings.
  • Density: about twice than standard white Nylgut.

Low G New Red Series on a Tenor ukulele

WHY ARE THERE DIFFERENT SHADES OF RED? In the manufacturing process of our Red Series strings we use different percentages of metal powder to optimize each string’s performance within the set. Because of this, the color varies slightly with each string in a set of Reds. This is not a production problem. It is so each string produces the sound you expect from Aquila Reds!

Attention! The Red Series strings must be stretched by your fingers in a gentle way. Not too much. The settle up in tune in 2-3 days.

We’re so satisfied with your product.
Thank you for everything and honored I like this nice bright tone and rapid attack response.
also I think (as you written down the back of the pack) tone stability is quite nice
Andre Hendriks – NL
A ukuleleshop is not complete whitout Aquila strings
John Whipps, – UK –
I bought a set of Rubino classical guitar….I love the strings on my guitar. ( Amalio Burgeut AB rio.) in fact, I wish to compliment you on both the quality of the strings and the service. Many thanks for the excellent and unique strings and exceptional service.
David Stanley – UK
…My set of Alchemia lasted over four months without losing their tone or their volume. That is a big compliment to the strings. Other strings would occasionally last me six weeks, other strings normally only last me about two weeks!
Julian Roach – UK
… After two weeks of playing on them every day I am still delighted with them….I find them molto cantabile, with excellent sustain, quick in their response and highly responsive to variation in touch. They bring a new kind of sound out of my Sakurai-Kohno, a very ’alive’ kind of sound. I normally play on D’Addario Pro Arte, which I regard both as excellent strings and good value. Alabastros cost a lot more, but I will pay the difference for their distinctive charm. I thought you might like to know that you have a customer in the UK who is very pleased with your strings…
James Everhart – USA
…I thank you very much for your service. As well as the quality of your product. I am a fan of Aquila strings for life.My ukulele says thank you very much! Have a Great Day!
ANDREA PETTINARI – ITALY
Vi vorrei rivolgere i miei più sentiti complimenti per il lavoro che svolgete, e il senso di orgoglio che mi compisce nel pensare che un’azienda italiana lavori in questo modo. Ho iniziato a suonare anche grazie a Voi, e questo ve lo devo.
Monique “Honeybird” Mizrahi – New York – US –
Aquila Corde charango strings have brought my charango sound to a new level. The supernylgut strings have a warm full sound with a magical presence which I haven’t heard in any other charango strings. Clarity in glissandos, nice feel for bends, definition in the double strings, pull-offs and hammer-ons. I am very happy with Aquila Corde. Grazie mille!
SYMON HOLMES – UK
Guys! I have just strung my soprano,concert and banjouke with your red strings, they are awesome! The sound is rich, the tonation beautiful and the low G for the concert uke is a wonder to behold. My instruments have never sounded so good. I thought my other Aquila strings were good…..but these…..WOW! My brother-in-law also plays uses and I have bought him two sets also. Thank you sooooo much for making these strings
Mark Trichka – USA
I saw your catalog online and was very impressed with your integrity and your product. I have used your strings before and loved them
Mario Berta – Italy
Grazie per la tempestività nel rispondere. Siete una delle migliori ditte al mondo (forse la migliore !) e questo fa onore agli italiani e ai musicisti.
Phil Doleman – UK
…Anyway, as a user of your uke strings for as long as I can remember (at least 10 years I’m sure)….I’m not asking for free products, simply to share the fact that I love your strings!
JUHA – Finland
Thank you very much for your kind support!!! Aquila has supported our events since we first begun and you have played a major role in helping us keep ukulele alive here……
Taro Tamura – Japan
I have web shop ”Spain Guitar Online Shop” in Japan. I have sell mainly Classical guitars,Flamenco guitars and Ukes. I am interested in your ukuleles strings. It’s fantastic.
Ann Beckett – AUSTRALIA
It is rare these days to find the dedication to customers’ needs by yourself and your Company and I absolutely applaud you for this, not too many companies would go out of their way to help like you have, rather they would dismiss it as just not worth the effort….Aquila have just been absolutely outstanding in offering help….
Giulio Chiandetti
Complimenti al m° Mimmo Peruffo! Ho montato sulla mia vecchia Ramirez le Aquila rubino. Dopo tanto tempo ho ritrovato il piacere del vibrato sulla chitarra classica. Una grande emozione. Anche i bassi rispondono senza rumori e sfregolii di sorta. Ottimo l’equilibrio degli accordi così come risaltano la personalità e il carattere del suono nelle linee melodiche. Queste sono corde armoniche! Grazie, maestro,
Matheus Verdan – Brazil
…..I am so glad, thanks for your attention! This really make’s a difference in a brand, excepcional! I will make the people know about the dangers with fake aquila, and about the real quality and professionalism of the brand! Thank you so much!
Rob Wright – AUSTRALIA
…I also recently bought a set of Aquila Reds for my Kala UBass which I am very happy with as well…
REINHOLD KRAUSE
…ok, your loaded long gut string is the best from long time.So am am waiting until you can…
Andrea Pettinari – ITALY
…felice che un’azienda italiana sia capace di distinguersi per professionalità e innovazione, come Voi fate.
John Kelly – USA
…I have used your strings for years and love them…
Del Ventruella – US
…My first reaction, when I installed this strings, was to tell myself to send Aquila a message and proclaim the guy who came up with these red label strings to be a genius! (Probably tired of hearing that by now…)
Michael Malley – USA
…I love the low g red series for the Ukulele. On my concert uke it works great…
M° Marcello Appignani
I have tried a lot of different brands of guitar strings but I never heard a sound so fitting to me! I am an ”anomalous” guitarist because I play also on the piano so I cannot have long nails and with the classical guitar strings Alabastro I got the sound I looked for.
M° Stefano Aruta – Italy
… ieri ho ricevuto le 12 mute di AMBRA che avevo richiesto, ho montato una nuova muta e sento il bisogno di ripeterti quanto detto al telefono a mio parere sono le migliori corde oggi reperibili.
…il mio parere è frutto di una esperienza quarantacinquennale …
Innanzi tutto ho sempre insegnato ai miei allievi che la musica è l’arte di organizzare i suoni ma la matrice di tutto è il suono in sè come mero epifenomeno ed al di la di ogni banale considerazione su potenza , durata , sustain ed altre simili amenità ti ringrazio perché attraverso la tua ricerca hai ridato nobiltà al suono della chitarra , si vede che dietro al tuo lavoro non vi è solo una mera ricerca commerciale , ma un affanno teso alla ricerca del bello in modo da mettere noi musicisti in condizione di dare il meglio…

I recently bought a few set of strings from your company. I wanted to try new strings after being loyal to my former brand for over thirty years. I must say I was pleasantly surprised in your Nylgut strings. The trebles where very nice
Oddbjorn Larsen – Norway
I got my Thunder reds for my Kala ubass yesterday. Put them on right away. Last night at rehearsal with my band. They all loved the tone, and for me the playability is way better than the standard strings. The deep E is loud and clear and makes it easy to make a statement for the bassist with a small bass. Thanks a lot
M° Massimo Gasbarroni – Italy
Come le accennavo frettolosamente, anch’io come, credo, tutti i chitarristi di questo mondo, abbiamo sempre avuto il problema di reperire delle corde di chitarra con delle prestazioni meccaniche e sonore accettabili.
Quando ero studente, fine anni quaranta-cinquanta ho provato anche le corde di budello e di seta naturalmente.
Ma se andavano bene per piccoli spazi non erano certo adatte ad una moderna sala da concerto, come ad esempio il Teatro Petruzzelli, 3000 posti, dove tenni un concerto senza problemi.
Sembrerebbe, a meno di un colossale abbaglio, che con le sue corde io possa aver finito di soffrire…
Tom Sweeney – UNITED STATES
I use a variety of Aquila strings on various instruments and appreciate the quality products and your responsiveness to customers.
George Charalampidis – Greece
…I love the sound of Aquila’s Nylgut for Oud and I do not want to buy strings from another company…
David Stanley – UK
On Nylgut strings…Many listeners have commented on their beautiful clear sound.
These are the best strings I have used in over 50 years of performing & teaching.
KIM MEYER – CANADA
Eventually I got my banjo tuned to standard G tuning….
I had to shorten a couple of the strings because of too many wraps around the tuner post, but now it stays in tune.
I love these Nylgut strings…
DEAN BECKETT
Thank you for your wonderful customer service, I cannot speak highly enough of your fantastic follow up and I will continue to use Aquila strings and a lot of that has to do with the treatment I have received from you and your Company.
Andrea Rinaudo – Italy
…mi ha stupito l’equilibrio tra bassi e cantini, cosa che permette anche di ottenere maggiori estensioni di volume con lo strumento, in registro acuto. Dal punto di vista timbrico poi sono davvero eccelse, nulla da invidiare alle…..   …le migliori corde mai provate (e non voglio far l’adulatore, non lo sono mai stato)….
Enrico Foglino – Italy
Ho ricevuto ieri le sostituzioni promesse. Grazie ancora, siete davvero professionali ed attenti ai clienti, qualità sempre più rare!
Castellaro Davide – The Utopia Custom shop – Italy
… In questo periodo diversi miei clienti mi chiedono i Vostri prodotti…
Scott Wenholz – California
I put the Lavas on my 8 string Uke this weekend and love them….the tone of the originals were great, but the Lavas are another level. Like the reds, they take a little while to settle in, but once they do, they sound and feel amazing. The black strings on a dark fret board looks cool too.
Steve Paull – Australia
The new Red Aquila strings have arrived.
I have tightened the lower G string up to the B above G with no problems.
Many thanks for your kindness and great service.
Mr. Clifford J. Lueck – US –
…just admiration for purchasing your Super Nylgut Ukulele strings for my 60 year old Mickey Mouse Getar I recently acquired.
I was able to achieve the required pitch and stability in seconds. That is saying a lot for a plastic Uke.

I will continue to purchase your strings for my 200+ collection of string instrument….

Regards
Michael Curry – USA
Alabastro, basses were nice and round, with plenty of edge to cut through, a very good string with lots of volume….
Nylgut- Extremely dynamic string, these are loud with better tone than carbon strings, all the brightness one would ever wantI would keep them on 2 of my 5 guitars though, because the grip on them is amazing, the unbelievable dynamic range, and they are warmer than carbon…. I must admit, I have been using very clear nylon strings over the yearsso nylgut was a nice in-between alternative, I think I will buy more in the future for sure..
The Bionylon felt great under my fingers, and I loved the sustain when I would do a glissando.
Salvatore Pinto – ITALY
…sono bellissime, grazie. siete stati molto gentili continuerò a usare queste corde.
Kreg Viesselman – Norway
My luthier, Leonardo Michelin-Salomon of LMS guitars, gave me a set of your strings to try on the guitar he made for me. Simply put, I love them.
Toon Van Schuylenbergh – Belgium
Hey Aquila, I’am playing ukulele for a few years now and I’am in love with Aquila strings. I always use Aquila strings…
M° Domenico Lafasciano
Ho avuto il piacere di provare le corde armoniche Aquila.
Ottimo prodotto, con perfetta intonazione, bellissima cantabilità, prontezza d’attacco,
fascino nel vibrato.
Inoltre la loro lunghezza e morbidezza, rendono anche piacevole il noioso lavoro del cambio
di corde.
Le userò e le raccomando vivamente !
