Aquila 153C Red Series Guilele / Guitalele Strings, E Tuning
A unique look and a strong, consistent sound: but why? Following the natural laws of physics, in order to reach lower frequencies an increase of diameter of the string is needed, but this increase will make the sound quality get worse and worse because of the internal dampening of the string. This translates into a duller sound, less brightness and responsiveness, following this practical law: the thicker the string, the duller the sound. Our revolutionary approach —never introduced before us— changes the specific weight of each treble string in order to compensate this loss of acoustical properties. This way, the diameter variation among each string is considerably smaller, allowing the instrument to sound brighter, more powerful and more responsive through the entire range of the fretboard, especially over the 12th fret. The strings also keep a better intonation thanks to the reduced diameter variations. Until today, this result was reached only with harps, where the scale of the strings is continuously varied in order to limit the dampening issue.
The GUILELE/GUITALELE RED SERIES sets provide superior performance over traditional strings, and suits all 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.
