Has anyone here tried Aquila Reds (low G) on a tenor Fluke? I've found that I like the tone they produce on my OU; it's a sort of bell-like chime. I use the unwound 4th.

Low G red is too thick to feed through the tenor Fluke . Perhaps you have enlarged the hole to made it work?

Yes, very delicately, and it wasn't the hole, it was the slot. I take it you're talking about the bridge. I also did the nut, with equal care, and it plays fine. I have a fluorocarb low G in it now; can't recall the brand.
