CONVERT TO LOW G TUNING FROM STANDARD RE-ENTRANT TUNING.
Your standard ukulele Tuning is with a high G string or re-entrant tuning. Your C String is your bass string giving you the lowest note possible of C on the open C String.
Converting to the Low G tuning is simple. Remove your high g String, fit the AQ6U Single wound Low G string in its place. Simple as That. You now have TWO Bass strings and your lowest note is now your Open G String.
More notes to play with, a bigger fuller bass sound and best of all Rock, Blues and Pop songs now sound more like the original recordings as guitars are also Linear tuned.
BREAKTHROUGH TECHNOLOGY IN STRING MATERIALS.
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 midlength with your fingers, pull it decidedly sideways and tune it up again. Stop when the string does not pull out of tune anymore.
