Full set of Aquila Red Series Strings designed for Tenor regular C-tuning with high-G.

Starting with Nylgut, Aquila adds red copper powder to increase the density of the string to almost twice as much. This results in a stiffer string capable of lower tunings, less breakage and better intonation. Filing of the nut slot may be required.

Red series sets give a unique feeling and a strong, consistent sound. Until now, it was necessary to increase the gauge of a strings to produce a lower-pitched note. 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. Aquila's revolutionary new approach changes the specific weight of the material, by increasing it progressively to leave the gauge almost unchanged. The result is amazing: instruments sound brighter, more powerful and more responsive through the entire range of the fretboard. The strings also keep 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.

Aquila Corde Armoniche produced all of their products in house in Vicenza, Italy.  Striving to fortify the use of traditional string making techniques in the 21st Century, Aquila Corde began experimenting in 1994 with numerous different plastic and additive mixes pestering large fishing line companies to let them test in small quantities.  It wasn’t until 1997 when the first Nylgut set of strings was born boasting the mechanical properties of plastic with the superior acoustical properties of gut.  Aquila had also previously designed the ‘gut loading process’ that combines a metallic, copper powder with roped gut strings.  Aquila Corde have more recently introduced the Silkgut, Bionylon and Thundergut that have all closed the gab between synthetics and natural gut.

It takes few more days in settling and then giving the proper sound. However, with my Pono the result not so satisfactory as initially the tension was too high & punchy sound was there, which drastically reduced now. The loudness is too low along with the degraded mellowness.
