Aquila Concert Ukulele Strings
With the development of a new synthetic material the Aquila Concert Ukulele Strings 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 our research. The New Nylgut® represents the fruit of this research and is a good synthesis of the acoustical properties of nylon and of PVF (carbon) strings.
Our 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.
Aquila Concert Ukulele Strings Features:
For standard tuning with high 4th string in GCEA
Material: Artificial gut (Nylgut)
Made in Italy
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.
Just like gut, the New Nylgut® is liable to suffer from cutting edges. Before stringing the instrument do make sure the nut and bridge are free from sharp edges and the nut grooves not too deep and perfectly smooth. You can get rid of sharp edges with very fine grit sandpaper (600, for example) or the finest steel wool.
