The New Nylgut® is the first product developed and patented by Aquila. Nylgut® is a plastic compound of three different components.
We'd say most ukulele enthusiasts seem to agree that fitting a set of Aquilas are the FIRST and BEST way improve the tone of a cheap ukulele. The volume and tone improvement will knock you out and are well worth the price of fitting a set.
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.
In other words, the New Nylgut® is probably the first genuine synthetic gut in the world.
The New Nylgut® assures:
- better sound similar to the genuine gut strings;
- a more accurate fret-intonation due to the well gauged material;
- a very stable intonation under moisture changes.
"AQUILA SETS ARE MADE USING INNOVATIVE MATERIALS, DISCOVERED AND PERFECTED IN OUR LABORATORY AFTER A LONG PERIOD OF RESEARCH AND AFTER BEING THOROUGHLY TESTED, THUS GIVING RISE TO A NEW SYNTHETIC PRODUCT OF HIGH TECHNOLOGY
The best sound quality develops when the strings have completely set, which may ordinarily take sometime.
To achieve a stable intonation in just a few minutes you can repeatedly pinch each string at mid-length with your fingers, pull it decidedly sideways and tune it up again. Stop when the string does not pull out of tune anymore.
