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. Aquila's revolutionary new approach changes the specific weight of the material, increasing it progressively to leave the gauge almost unchanged. The result is amazing: a brighter, more powerful and more responsive sound through the entire range of the fretboard and thinner strings with higher string tension than traditional strings. The strings also maintain their intonation better, because thicker strings need to be fretted harder, pulling them further out of tune. Thunder Reds® are a great choice for musicians who love bright sounds and powerful voicing across the full scale of the instrument.
