Aquila Nylgut Tenor Ukulele Strings (AQ10U)
AQUILA Tenor Ukulele 4-String Set. Nylgut.
The New Nylgut is the first product developed and patented by Aquila.
The New Nylgut is nor common Nylon or Carbon (Fluorocarbon fishing line or PVDF), or a mix of them. It is a plastic compound of three different components.
Compared to Nylon, the New Nylgut produces a better sound and stays in tune better, this because the moisture absorption is less than 0.1% against the 2.0% of Nylon normally employed for the musical strings (i.e. Du Pont Tynex polyamide 6-12).
The New Nylgut produces a superior sound than Nylon due to its higher density, which is similar to pure gut (1.30 gr/cm3). Additionally, it is not as metallic as the strings labeled as 'Carbon' (Fluorocarbon) PVDF. Consequently, the New Nylgut is likely the first authentic synthetic gut worldwide.
A better sound than Nylon or PVDF, similar to the genuine gut strings.
A more accurate fret-intonation due to the well gauged material.
A very stable intonation under moisture changes.
