    The Aquila Red low Gs are not wound

    When I bought them, they were. I guess they have a non wound option or depends what year you bought them?

    I love Fremont low G's but have 1 tenor with a Living Water low G unwound. It's good but the Fremont is better sounding to my ears (YEMD*).

    Sorry- did not see that you said non-metal. of Course I really like the KoAloha/uke-reka flouro Carbon.
    Ijust got one that is amazing. Absolutely perfect. Does not over power. Not too thick. Does not unwind. But expensive. Thomastik-Infeld CF30. Chrome Steel Flat Wound .030

    So, what's a good non-metal low-G string?

    When you buy a low G set of Aquila Reds, they come with a wound string. When you buy a single Aquila Red low G string, it is not wound. It is an entirely different thing.

    Mine were bought singularly, they were non wound, (otherwise I wouldn't have bought them), I don't like wound strings.
    Trying to do justice to various musical instruments.

    Thanks, everyone. I ordered four Living Waters, two for each of us. I bought a used Fluke that came with Low-G, and it sounds so good that I'm going to put a low-G on another Fluke.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    Ah, that explains it - I've only bought the singles
    Thank you!
