Aquila Mandolin Strings for Baroque & Modern Mandolin – Aquila Nylgut Red Series – 1M

Aquila Mandolin Strings for Baroque & Modern Mandolin – Aquila Nylgut Red Series – 1M

  • Aquila Nylgut Red Series Mandolin Strings - Code 1M
  • For Baroque and Modern Mandolin Only
  • Low G Tuning - Key of C
  • Pack Includes Strings ee, aa, DD, GG
  • Handmade in Italy
  • Superb Sound, Strength & Intonation
  • Patented Nylgut Red Series String Technology
  • Not for use on Country Mandolin
Additional DescriptionMore Details

With Aquila's superior Nylgut strings having taken the ukulele world by storm, their highly regarded brand has now gone one better with their new innovative 'Red Series' range.

Until now, it has always been necessary to increase a string's gauge to reach lower frequencies, unfortunately an increase in string diameter also has the disadvantage of increasing internal dampening resulting in a less responsive, duller sound. Using their unrivalled techniques in string manufacture, Aquila have conquered this age old problem by adding fine layers of copper powder to their already superior Nylgut strings, increasing their density without adding to their gauge.

With amazing results, Aquila's Red Series strings now achieve a brighter, more powerful sound whilst being much more responsive across the entire range of the fretboard. Red series also offer better intonation than traditional strings due to the fact they are thinner and do not have to be fretted as hard as traditional wound strings, which are also prone to oxidisation.

With their unique look and revolutionary approach, Aquila have risen to the challenge and produced another excellent string set which resolves the age old problem of 'density versus string gauge' and come up with fantastic results.

Pack Contains Red Series Mandolin Strings - ee, aa, DD, GG

This set is suitable for Baroque and Modern Mandolins only. Please do not install on a Country Mandolin.

Set includes mainly red series strings with 2 wound red copper G strings.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

With Aquila's superior Nylgut Red Series strings making huge waves in the ukulele world, Aquila have now extended their range to include the Brazilian Cavaquinho. A close relative of the ukulele and extremely popular in many forms of Brazilian music such as Samba and Choro, the Cavaquinho is tuned to D, g, b ,d and is an octave higher than the Baritone ukulele 'open G' tuning DGBD.

Before the creation of Aquila's superb Red Series brand, it has always been necessary to increase a string's gauge to reach lower frequencies and so most Low G sets have previously included a wound string to achieve their purpose. Unfortunately an increase in string diameter also has the disadvantage of increasing internal dampening resulting in a less responsive, duller sound. Using their unrivalled techniques in string manufacture, Aquila have conquered this age old problem by adding fine layers of copper powder to their already superior Nylgut strings, increasing their density without adding to their gauge.
