A unique feeling and a strong, consistent sound. Until now, it was necessary to increase the gauge of a string for it to produce a lower-pitched note. But increasing the string’s diameter also increases 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 — unique to us — changes the specific weight of the material, increasing it progressively to leave the gauge almost unchanged.
The technical solution adopted was firstly to make the Nylgut elastic and then add red copper powder in order to increase the density to about twice that of standard white Nylgut.
Surface: slightly rough; this texture has eliminated the squeak that sometime occurs with the Nylgut strings.
Elasticity/Elongation: consistent with white Nylgut!
Performances: better than the first elastic version! They do not break under tension providing rapid, stable tuning!
Intonation: accurate past the 12th fret
Pressing the string firmly down on the frets does not cause the note to sharpen.
It is not necessary to file the nut slot wider to accommodate our RED SERIES® string, as was necessary with the previous fluorocarbon G strings.
