Aquila 10U All Nylgut Tenor Ukulele String Set With Regular G

NYLGUT SYNTHETIC STRINGS "NG" TYPE

INTRODUCTION

The development of a new synthetic material that can imitate the acoustical characteristics of gut but without the typical defects such as high cost, short string life, and severe instability to changes of climate, has always been a fundamental goal of Aquila's research. Nylgut is the result and is a perfect synthesis of the acoustical properties of Nylon and of PVF strings. Nylgut's formula is protected by U.S. and International patents.

TECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS AND FIELD OF APPLICATION

Nylgut, distinguishable by its color, nearly the same as natural gut, has a specific density and acoustical qualities nearly identical to that of gut with a very high breaking point index of 310hz per meter. Nylgut is the first and only synthetic string that possesses the sonic qualities of the natural gut string.

Other strong points of Nylgut are its elevated resistance to wear under tension-greater than that of gut-but even more important is its extraordinary immunity to changes of climate, considerably better than that of Nylon and thereby ensuring a superior stability of tuning under normal conditions.

Nylgut can be used advantageously as a substitute for Nylon strings for plucked instruments. For example, Nylgut strings are particularly well suited for the 1st through 5th courses of the renaissance and d minor baroque lutes. Nylgut is also excellent for baroque guitars, vihuelas, ukuleles, and 19th century banjos. See the guitar page for polished Nylgut strings for classical guitars.
