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).

very impressed

About Me Experienced

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

Unusual rough feel to them and they feel thin . When played gently they really have a good ring . I put them on a tenor with solid spruce top and ply back and sides replacing the white aquilas ???? that it came with and it is a different instrument. I do hope they don't break. I fitted them today and they have almost settled in after 5 hours and countless tunings. Give them a try if just to experience something

    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.
