Item Description


Key of C GCEA set: a unique look and a strong, consistent sound.

Until now, it was necessary to increase a string’s gauge to reach lower frequencies. But increasing the string’s diameter also increases internal dampening. That make the string less bright, less responsive and more muffled; the thicker the string, the duller the sound. Our revolutionary new approach—never introduced before us—changes the specific weight of the material, increasing it progressively to leave the gauge unchanged.

The result is amazing—the instrument sounds brighter, more powerful and more responsive through the entire range of the fret board. The strings also maintain their intonation better (because thicker strings need to be fretted harder, pulling them farther out of tune). Until now, this result was reached only with harps where the scale of the strings is continuously varied.

RED SERIES sets provide superior performance over traditional strings for 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.


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 sometime hapPen with the Nylguts.

- Elasticity/Elongation: like the common white Nylgut!

- Performances: better than the first elastic version! They do not break under stretching. fast and stable   tuning!  

- 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 can happen with the fluorocarbon G strings

- Density: about twice than standard white Nylgut


Attention! The Red Series strings must be stretched by  your fingers in a gentle way. Not too much. The settle up in tune in 2-3 days.

Best Strings Ever!!!!!!
January 18, 2021
I have these on my soprano, concert (electric), and Banjolele. Cant praise enough! Comfort, Sound, Long Life, Resilient, other stuff... the list goes on. I really love how smooth they are. Its almost like they encourage you to keep playing. Try them out and you will know what I mean. These are different. They are like the regular Aquila's 4U Nylgut, but they feel like a fraction thinner, 2 fractions denser, They are red (no big deal), the sound Is just a little brighter, and they are just sssooo smooth (can't emphasize that enough), and they actually break in pretty quick. I love these things!!!
  • Sound, Comfort, lots of stuff. These are my favs
  • They are red. Some people hate. I think they look good. Dont worry about it. Its all gravy.

Best ukulele strings for a bright soprano sound!
July 12, 2018
I had these strings on my electric concert and found that it was a bit too bright and plunky. The second I put them on my soprano however... score! What a sound! I've used two sets at this point and consistently get compliments. Plus, my students can hear me even when there's 30 ukes playing.

Great Job, love Strings and Beyond!

I promptly received a confirmation email after ordering, followed by another email when the strings made it into my state. When I received the strings, (only took four days, way to go!) I was greeted with a handwritten note at the bottom of the receipt that thanked me for my purchase, and to tell my friends. Believe me, I have. I just adore the small town feel that Strings and Beyond has provided for me.
Thanks Guys,
Keep up the good Work!
