Key of C GCEA set: a unique look and a strong, consistent sound.

Until now, it was necessary to increase a string’s gauge to reach lower frequencies. But increasing the string’s diameter also increases internal dampening. That make the string less bright, less responsive and more muffled; the thicker the string, the duller the sound. Our revolutionary new approach—never introduced before us—changes the specific weight of the material, increasing it progressively to leave the gauge unchanged.

 

The result is amazing—the instrument sounds brighter, more powerful and more responsive through the entire range of the fret board. The strings also maintain their intonation better (because thicker strings need to be fretted harder, pulling them farther out of tune). Until now, this result was reached only with harps where the scale of the strings is continuously varied.

RED SERIES sets provide superior performance over traditional strings for musicians who love clear, sharp sounds and powerful voicing across the full scale of the instrument.

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

 

NEWS!!   IMPROVED RED SERIES VERSION

 

Main Features:

 

- Technical solution adopted: Nylgut made firstly elastic and then added with 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 hapPen with the Nylguts.

- Elasticity/Elongation: like the common white Nylgut!

- Performances: better than the first elastic version! They do not break under stretching. fast and stable   tuning!  

- Intonation: accurate past the 12th fret

- Pressing strongly the string on the frets, the note does not became sharper

- It is not necessary to file the nut slot wider to accommodate it like can happen with the fluorocarbon G strings

- Density: about twice than standard white Nylgut

 

Attention! The Red Series strings must be stretched by  your fingers in a gentle way. Not too much. The settle up in tune in 2-3 days.

 

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.
