Aquila 24U 6-String Baritone Ukulele String Set Regular tuning, DGgBee
AQUILA 24U 6-STRING BARITONE UKE SET
NYLGUT – Regular tuning, DGgBee.
These strings are made in Italy from a synthetic material called “Nylgut.” Nylgut is a new formulation of polymerized plastic mixed with additives and patented by Aquila. The New Nylgut® is the first product developed and patented by Aquila.
The New Nylgut® is not common Nylon or Carbon (Fluocarbon fishing line or PVDF) but rather a mix of them. It is a plastic compound of three different components.
Compared to Nylon, the New Nylgut® produces a better sound and has better tuning stability, this is because the moisture absorption is less of .1% against the 2.0% of Nylon normally used for musical strings (i.e. Du Pont Tynex® polyammide 6-12).
Due to the higher density, which is 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:
o better sound than Nylon or PVDF, similar to genuine gut strings
o more accurate fret-intonation
o stable intonation under moisture changes.
o Colour: white
