WHY A LOW G STRING?
  1. Fitting a Low G String tuned string set is easy to do.

  2. All your Chord Shapes stay exactly the same.

  3. Your Ukulele will now give you that Big Fat sound when strummed, yet is still easy playing on your fingertips. 

  4. You effectively have 2 BASS Strings, the C string and now a G.  Your G note is now LOWER than your C by 5 Semitones giving you more notes to play with.

  5. If you play ROCK Songs or BLUES Songs they will sound more 'authentic".

  6. The LOW G LINEAR TUNING feels more natural to guitarists transitioning to Ukulele.

  7. Playing Low Note riffs now "WORKS" and Scales just sound right because now the lowest Note on your ukulele is an Open G note on your 4th string.

  8. Linear tuning ROCKS!

The best sound quality develops when the strings have completely set, which may ordinarily take some time. To achieve a stable intonation in just a few minutes you can repeatedly pinch each string at mid-length with your fingers, pull it decidedly sideways and tune it up again. Stop when the string does not pull out of tune anymore.
 
CONVERT TO LOW G TUNING FROM STANDARD RE-ENTRANT TUNING.
Your standard ukulele Tuning is with a high G string or re-entrant tuning.  Your C String is your bass string giving you the lowest note possible of C on the open C string.

Converting to the Low G tuning is simple.  Remove your high g String, fit the AQ6U Single wound Low G string in its place.  Simple as That.  You now have TWO Bass strings and your lowest note is now your Open G String.  

More notes to play with, a bigger fuller bass sound, and best of all Rock, Blues, and Pop songs now sound more like the original recordings as guitars are also Linear tuned.

RED SERIES® sets provide superior performance over traditional strings. A more rounded less bright tone than the White Nylgut or Super Nylgut strings. A Softer feel under your fingertips too.

Aquila's revolutionary new approach — unique to Aquila — changes the specific weight of the material, increasing it progressively to leave the gauge almost unchanged.

You never heard a sound like this before, simply because before it did not exist.

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 Fuller Bassier Jazzier Tone. 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. NOT ANY MORE with the Red Series.

The result is amazing: instruments sound 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 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.

WHY ARE THERE DIFFERENT SHADES OF RED?
In the manufacturing process of Red Series strings, use of different percentages of metal powder to optimise each string’s performance within the set. Because of this, the colour 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!

MAIN FEATURES
The technical solution adopted was first to make the Nylgut elastic and then add the 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.
Density: about twice than standard white Nylgut.
