Aquila Nylgut Ukulele Strings

You want to get the best from your ukulele strings. Of course you do, but best means different things to different people. For those who want to get the distinct overtones of gut, nylgut provides that bright, lively, almost jangly sort of sound.

So what the heck is Nylgut anyway? As one might suspect, it is a synthetic material, invented, copyrighted, and patented by our friends at Aquila Corde Armoniche. It possesses a sonic profile almost identical to natural gut. Nylgut strings have the same mean specific weight as gut and a low degree of humidity absorption, only ten percent that of nylon.

Aquila recommends letting the strings completely set to provide the best sound quality. 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.
