Aquila's Red strings produce a deeper tone by changing the weight of the material rather than increasing its gauge. By keeping the gauge thinner and more consistent, Red® strings sound brighter and more powerful, and are more responsive across the entire fretboard. This also helps them stay in tune longer than thicker strings. The textured brown/red Red® strings have a very rich tone with a very loud projection.

Love these strings
I was looking for a set of strings that had a bit more brightness and sustain on the A string
The Aquila Reds hit the mark
They have a slight texture to them - Which I like - It seems to give your finger placement more purpose as you slide up the frets
Would recommend trying a set
I like the Aquila Reds … bright, clear & responsive … they hold their tune well … and l have had no issues with strings breaking. While l am no expert l feel they have improved the sound of my Kala bamboo which was a little muddy/dull and my Flight mustang which lacked volume/projection.
The Aquila Red Series have been my go to strings for my tenor for a couple of years now. I love their sound! Recently I broke a string and didn't hesitate to order the Red Series again. However when they arrived I discovered a complimentary set of Nami fluorocarbon strings which Ukulele Mate suggested I should try. I have used fluorocarbons (different brand) before and liked the sound but found them slippery under fingers but thought I would give these Nami strings a try. Brilliant! Clear, bright and great tone. I love them so much I have left them on. Because i live in regional WA with the nearest music shop 500kms away I now have my Aquila Red Series as great quality spares. Thanks Ukulele Mate for the prompt service of sending my Red strings and for introducing me to Nami.
I bought a set of tenor and also concert Aquila Red strings, and I love the feel of them, and the clean, bright sound is amazing. Very much a new fan.
The service and delivery times from UkuleleMate are brilliant too!
These strings are wonderful on my solid mahogany tenor. I am not a fan of Aquila normally but these are a wonderful compromise between the projection of super nylgut and the clarity and responsiveness of fluorocarbons. They really marry well with this darker sounding tone wood. Great delivery time.
