Red Series Strings
Who never dreamed of tuning the ukulele in low G, without using a fourth wound string type? Wound strings indeed, together with the quality of  sound power shows problems that in ukulele are very considered:

1) shorter lifetime than the treble strings
2) sound power too bright and intrusive compared to the plastic treble strings
3) excessive sustain
4) noise caused by the fingers of the left hand
5) rapid oxidation of the metal wire in case of acid sweat

The  only alternative solution used today is the use of a fluorocarbon 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 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. Aquila 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. 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 sometimes happen with the Nylguts.
-Elasticity: excellent
-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 happen with the fluorocarbon G strings
-Density: about twice than standard white Nylgut
-Diameters: included in a range of 1.00 to 1.07 mm (Soprano and Tenor Ukuleles)
