Overview

The Red Series by Aquila offers a unique feeling and a strong sound. Until now, it was necessary to increase a strings gauge to reach lower frequencies, which makes the string less bright and responsive.

Aquilas new approach is nothing less than revolutionary: leaving the gauge unchanged, but increasing the specific weight of the material string by string. As a result, the instrument sounds brighter, more powerful, and more responsive through the entire range of the fretboard.

The strings also maintain their intonation better (because thicker strings need to be fretted harder, pulling them farther out of tune).

    Comments about AQUILA Red Series 85U Concert Ukulele Strings (GCEA Tuning):

    Nice and thin but they feel "sharp" as if the material is either porous or is covered with burs. Sound?... Far too bright and toy-like for my taste. There is no consistency with the colour, feel or sound of these strings.

      Comments about AQUILA Red Series 85U Concert Ukulele Strings (GCEA Tuning):

      The tone and quality of red series is unbeatable! Some people seem to not like the slightly "rougher" quality of the finishes. But i personally find it helpful. It adds a touch of friction in holding chords and assists with sharper note bends. It also eliminates the squeakiness you find in other uke strings. On top of it all the strength and holding of thier tuning is top notch as well, and furthermore this set never has any "deadspots" where intonation is duller or quieter that i tend to find with other sets. Just try these strings. I think you will be sold.
