    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.
