Aquila Corde’s latest creation for classical guitar is now available in Cuerdas Pulsadas: el juego de cuerdas RUBINO.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA The innovation of these strings is based on a basic problem: the manufacture of strings for low frequencies requires increasing the diameter of the same, and a well-known solution: reducing the diameter of the strings allows reducing the internal damping and thus the sound is brighter, less dull. As early as the 17th century, the use of impregnated metals in the gut, or of a light wound, made it possible to reduce the gauge of the strings and gave these strings a characteristic color, usually red, although sometimes also blue. As we told in the article about the semi- gut- wound , as early as 1664 semi-wound gut strings were announced and there are various iconographic evidences that also support the use of this technique, especially in thicker strings, in lower sounds.   Anonymous dutch painter   And precisely red is the surprising color of the three treble strings of RUBINO:   IMG_5492   Aquila Corde’s revolutionary approach to the design of these strings has involved modifying the specific weight of the material, progressively increasing it so as not to change the gauge. The result is amazing: the instrument sounds brighter, more powerful, and more responsive throughout the entire range of the fingerboard. The strings also hold their intonation better (because thicker strings need to be tightened more).   OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA   Now available in Cuerdas Pulsadas, here you can get a full RUBINO set.
