The F-Red Series are the new synthetic strings for bowed instruments, developed by Aquila Corde Armoniche as a valid alternative to natural gut.
Eco-sustainable, stable in intonation and durable, the new F-Red Series are our answer to the needs of all students and musicians who have to face conditions where the use of gut becomes too demanding, such as
- high temperature and humidity conditions, typical for example of some sub-tropical countries (e.g. South America and Africa);
- high cost for the replacement of gut strings that students have to face when approaching the study of ancient music instruments.
- to avoid damage, do not cut the strings; in case you want to shorten them, first spread some superll glue around the point where you want to cut;
- once installed, before you start playing them, it’s important to apply some rosin on the portion of the string that will come into contact with the bow.
