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 87U Tenor Ukulele Strings (GCEA Tuning):
Once I tried Aquila Reds, I never bought another string but Aquila. I use their Bionylon and Lava strings as well, but only when a white or black string would look better on the ukulele. Their Nylgut comes stock on most quality ukuleles. The Reds sound fantastic, and once stretched, stay in tune for a really long time. Aquila is the only uke string manufacturer that makes their own strings. Everything else is basically repackaged fishing line unless you go to a wound string.
