AQUILA 'RED SERIES' Tenor Ukulele UNWOUND LOW G UKULELE STRING
This package contains 1 string designed to convert your ukulele to Low G tuning.
The only alternative solution used today is the use of a fluocarbon string. Its performance, however, is never entirely satisfactory because a low string, to be really good, must not only use materials with high density but also be very flexible. Fluorocarbon is unfortunately a very stiff material.
Elasticity, together with density, is indeed the secret for the sound quality of a low string.
We are happy to announce that we managed to win a difficult technological challenge (already tried by many others but without success):
unwound fourth strings now finally exist.
From now, you will finally be able to tune your ukulele in Low G ensuring sound power,sound quality and intonation on frets better than the fluorocarbon strings fully integrated with that of the upper treble strings.
AQUILA 'RED SERIES' UNWOUND LOW G UKULELE STRING
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
-Surface: slightly rough; this texture has eliminated the squeak that sometime happens with the wound Nylguts.
-Intonation: accurate past the 12th fret
-Pressing the string hard on the frets does not became make the note go sharper
-It is not necessary to file the nut slot wider to accommodate it as happens with the fluocarbon G strings
-Density: about twice than standard white Nylgut
