well.
while the Guilele set in E is available like one of ther Aquila product (at present is in our website/on line shop only) for the Mini red series E set I must wait the Cordoba guys- aprovation. In fact, the Mini strings are by Aquila made for Cordoba so they must take the final decision.
I will send them a few of samples then, if the answer is positive, there is the time to design the new Cordoba/Mini envelope.
If they do not acept aquila will do the job introducing a new aquila product.

HI Adam,
the reds for the Mini... yes but, what difficoults! To obtain that kind of sound I was obliged to employed the new sugar cane polymer (that it is far brighter then the fluorocarbon) and A LOT of metal powder in the recipe. a lot....


Uketanzon:
The 145 C is high e tuning, same of violin. I mean the 153 C. E tuning, same of guitar.
we have troubles in our webiste. latter it will be added again.
Please note the high e tuning same of violin: this is an huge news!

The job on the website will be done next week.
The code is 153 C and, despite the website, is available
I have done the 3rd red just to have three reds or similar to red and three white basses.

Hello Mimmo,
Thank you for this great news (and sound test demo) the exciting new development of these wondrous Red series string set (nylon + copper). What is the Aquila 153C set's tension on a 20" scale Cordoba mini? I'm using the official Cordoba E tuning nylon string set and very much interested to try out the new Aquila 153C. I hope to achieve a brighter sound and hopefully smaller string sizes too.
Thanks in advance.
Youn Chin

The 153C set is for E tuning on 17" scale. This would likely be very high tension on 20" scale. You could likely do D tuning or even C# on the longer scale with similar tension. But that wouldn't give you brighter sound.

Do you know about the E tuning set specifically designed for the Mini?
