red line strings
November 13, 2014
I purchased a full, unwound set of red line strings for my ukulele over a month ago. I was careful to bring them to tune slowly and maintained a consistent temperature. They have stretched beautifully and I have not had any trouble with breakage. In addition to playing ukulele, I am also a harpist, and I appreciate the response of these strings--although it is not exactly like playing on gut, these strings have less overall "bounce" than plain nylon and a smoother sound than wire-wrapped strings. I am very pleased with my investment in these strings.

I suspect that people who have had trouble with breakage may have a higher bridge with a sharper angle than I do--my bridge is quite low and somewhat beveled. A high bridge with a steep angle will put too much stress on a single point for these strings.

This is my Amazon review of these strings.

I bought and installed the low G for tenor and the D and G for Baritone. Both of the Baritone strings broke before I could get them tuned. The tenor string stayed with me for a couple weeks. Then it just snapped while in the case. These are crap. The all gut sound continues to allude us. Don't waste your time or your money.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: When purchasing Red Aquila singles, please be certain of the correct string for your instrument. If not correctly sized, the string is likely to break. Such breakage is not covered under warranty, so be careful!
