Aquila 4U Soprano Uke 'Nylgut' Strings

Code: 4U

A set of four 'New Nylgut' Soprano ukulele strings gauged for regular tuning

Full description


Aquila soprano uke strings are made in Italy...

Compared to Nylon, the New Nylgut® produces a better sound and stays in tune better, this because the moisture absorption is less of .1% against the 2.0% of Nylon normally employed for the musical strings (i.e. Du Pont Tynex® polyammide 6-12).

Due to the higher density, similar to that of pure gut (1.30 gr/cm3), the New Nylgut® produces a better sound than Nylon and it is not so metallic like those of the so- called ‘Carbon’ (Fluorocarbon) PVDF strings.

In other words, the New Nylgut® is probably the first genuine syntetic gut in the world.

The New Nylgut® assures:

a better sound than Nylon or PVDF, similar to the genuine gut strings;
a more accurated fret-intonation due to the well gauged material;
a very stable intonation under moisture changes.

The Aquilla Irish GADE string set works and sounds perfect on this Banjo Uke, so I can play it like my mandolin.

Bought to replace dodgy looking black nylon strings. Definite improvement in sound quality.
