Aquila New Nylgut Regular Soprano Ukulele String Set
The New Nylgut is the first product developed and patented by Aquila. The New Nylgut isn't common Nylon or Carbon (Fluocarbon fishing line or PVDF), nor a mix of them. It is a plastic compound of three different components. The New Nylgut produces a higher quality sound and stays in tune better, this is because the moisture absorption is less then .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 synthetic gut in the world.
- A better sound than Nylon or PVDF, similar to the genuine gut strings
- A more accurate fret-intonation due to the well gauged material
- A very stable intonation under moisture changes
