Aquila Nylgut Ukulele String Set - Soprano Low G Tuning
Until the mid-20th century Ukuleles were mounted exclusively in gut, a material that had been used for thousand of years and that combines excellent promptness of attack with brilliance of timbre - very different, in other words, from modern nylon strings. And until recently the typical sound quality of gut has been a constant point of reference for luthiers, composers and performers alike.
A fundamental aim of Aquila research has been to make a new synthetic product having the same acoustic properties as gut - but without its typical defects - (high cost, limited duration and high instability under varying climate). The New Nylgut has precisely these qualities: allowing you to rediscover the sonorities familiar to the great 19th and 20th century Uke masters; and guaranteeing a stability of tuning higher even than that of the best gut and nylon strings.
The drawbacks of gut, high cost, limited life, instability with varying humidity, quality control, led to its replacement by nylon. Aquila Nylgut strings are made from a synthetic gut with the same acoustic properties as organic gut but without the drawbacks. These sets are for Soprano Uke.
