Aquila Ukulele Concert Strings - Description

Aquila Ukulele Concert Strings The development of a new synthetic material that can imitate the acoustical characteristics of gut but without the typical defects such as high cost, short string life, and severe instability to changes of climate, has always been a fundamental goal of Aquila's research. Nylgut is the result. Nylgut's formula is protected by U.S. and International patents. Nylgut has a specific density and acoustical qualities nearly identical to that of gut, and is the first truly successful synthetic version of the natural product. Other strong points of Nylgut are its elevated resistance to wear under tension-greater than that of gut-but even more important is its extraordinary immunity to changes of climate, considerably better than that of Nylon and thereby ensuring a superior stability of tuning under normal conditions. NYLGUT FOR UKULELES Nylgut strings are quickly becoming the choice of ukulele players worldwide and we have received many positive comments. Some have said that their instruments have been transformed by Nylgut strings. Nylgut strings for ukuleles are highly polished to a smooth surface. Please read: the wound strings used for all Aquila ukulele sets such as soprano low G, concert low G, tenor low G, baritone in guitar tuning, and a few other varieties that use a wound string, use a very fine wire wrapping on the wound strings in order to produce their excellent tone. These strings do not have the long life span of the more durable but poor sounding wound strings offered by other manufacturers. Players who use Aquila ukulele sets with wound strings please be aware that the wound strings will need to be replaced much more often than the plain Nylgut strings that make up the rest of the set. We advise that players purchase 3 or 4 extra single wound strings with every set. When played often a wound string may last only about 1-2 weeks, which is also dependent on the condition of the frets. This is considered to be normal wear for these strings and is not a defective string. Thank you for your understanding. Players who do not want to replace strings as often as this are advised to use Aquila ukulele sets that have all Nylgut strings, which are most sets that have a high g. The condition of the frets is an extremely important component in this situation. In the case of some of the inexpensive ukuleles, the frets are sometimes not finished very well and have squared off edges, which is part of the reason the ukuleles are inexpensive. Proper fret dressing is a time consuming task that would add to the cost of the instrument. Frets that are rounded and smoothly polished are essential for the best life of Aquila wound ukulele strings as well as making for a much better playing instrument. We encourage players to be sure their frets are smooth, polished to a shiny finish, and well rounded. You will definitely notice a difference in playability.
