The Aquila 4U Nylgut Soprano Ukulele Strings belong to Aquila’s new Nylgut series, designed to reproduce the promptness of attack and brilliance that characterize original gut strings. Aquila aimed to design a synthetic string that has the same acoustic properties a gut, but without its typical limitations. The 4U New Nylgut set allows players to discover the sound of 19th and 20th century uke masters, while providing greater tuning stability higher than even the best gut and nylon strings.
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’s 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 climatic). The New Nylgut has these qualities!
