Item Description

Aquila 153C Guilele Red Series - E Tuning

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 Aquila - 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 GUILELE/GUITALELE 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.

Guilele Red Series: 153C

Tuning: E (e a d G B E)

Set composition: Full Set

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. String tension: like the Alabastro Normal set

Regular tuning on a guilele but with compromises
June 17, 2019
I was so glad that Aquila developed strings that allow me to tune my guilele like a standard guitar. What I noticed once I got them on.

The bass strings (particularly 6) remain at lower tension. This means I cannot strike those strings with as much force or I get fret buzz. I thought maybe I had just tuned the 6th string an octave too low, but when I tried to tighten it up, I busted the string (it broken at a place that gave me just enough length to string it back up).

Because of this lower tension, the instrument doesn't project as much as it does with the standard A strings (even when those are tuned down to G).

With these Red E strings, the guilele is nice to strum quietly at home without a pick. Right now, this is my night-time instrument for when I feel like playing late. It does well with a felt ukelele pick or lightly strummed with fingers.
