NYLGUT CONCERT UKULELE STRINGS
By Aquila, Italy
Until the mid-20th century Ukuleles were strung with animal gut strings. Gut strings offer superior tone to modern synthetic strings but have many shortcomings
Nylgut by Aquila is a new synthetic material that imitates the superior acoustical characteristics of gut but without the typical defects such as high cost, short string life, poor intonation and severe instability to changes of climate. Nylgut has a specific density and tonal quality nearly identical to that of gut, and is the first truly successful synthetic version of the natural product.
Aquila Nylgut uke strings offer improved resistance to wear under tension-greater than that of gut, and extraordinary immunity to changes of climate, considerably better than that of Nylon, ensuring consistent stability of tuning.
Aquila Nylgut strings are quickly becoming the choice of ukulele players worldwide. We have found that even the cheapest ukes are transformed by Nylgut strings, and they make good instruments sound even better. We are very happy to be able to offer a full range of Uke strings that make such a profound improvement to the ukulele sound.
