Aquila Ambra 2000 108C Classical Guitar Strings Normal Tension, Full Set

Up to the middle of the 20th century, the only available strings for guitar were gut strings for Trebles and silk wound strings for basses: their acoustical performance was different from that of modern Guitar setup. The salient characteristics of the past setups were: a marked tonal presence, response and brightness typical of gut strings (certainly superior to plain nylon and in some respects closer to fluocarbon strings) while the basses, on the other hand, possessed an exquisitely vocal quality, i.e. not so bright as, and with less sustain than, modern wound on nylon strings and more fundamental heavy. Aquila's Ambra set was developed in order to best re-create, by means of modern synthetic materials, a different feel. This set was conceived for one grade of tension and consists of white coloured Nylgut for Trebles, while for the basses (silvered copper wires wound on red-colored multifilament core) Aquila employed a different balance between wire and core in order to obtain warm and deep performances.

The Ambra 2000 set was born from the wish to search for sounds similar to gut strings, now almost completely forgotten, which first made the guitar great. The set is composed of Nylgut® trebles (with a small difference in their formulation, in order to achieve the best melodiousness, main target of this set) while basses, that are called ‘Rayon‘, are silver-plated copper wound on a red-colored multifilament core, for which we aimed to find the right balance between metal and core in order to recreate a warm and percussive sound, similar to silk basses.

The presence of more low frequencies (which are slightly absorbed in the distance) ensures better projection in the concert hall.
