View Full Version : lu21b stock aquila string order

For various reasons I'm trying to put the factory aquila strings back on my lu21b. When I got it I immediately put worth browns on it but want to try the original.

The strings have 2 wounds, one silver and one copper/gold colored.

I had the gold string in the 'd' packet and the silver in the 'g' packet but the silver is slightly fatter than the gold. I put the silver as the 'd' string but figured I better double check first before doing in the strings.

Can someone please verify the order of the wounds?

Checked a new pack of Aquila 21U baritone strings and the 4th D string is lighter colored (gold) than the 3rd G string which is silver colored. 4th also seems to be smaller diameter than the 3rd string.

thanks. i figured out pretty quickly that the gold string got to tension quicker so i switched them. thanks for verification. the smaller diameter 'd' fooled me a bit.
