AQUILA FLAMENCO GUITAR GRANATO SET NORMAL TENSION
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 the internal dampening. That makes 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 gauges almost unchanged as possible is.
The result is amazing: the instrument sounds brighter, more powerful and more responsive through the entire range of the fretboard. 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.
THE GRANATO SERIES sets provide superior performance over traditional Flamenco 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.
Attention: there are different percentages of metal powder inside the polymer to optimize each string’s performance within the set.
Because of this, the color varies slightly with each string.
