  • Description

    The New Nylgut® is the first product developed and patented by Aquila. It is n either common Nylon, n or Carbon (Fluocarbon fishing line or PVDF), n 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 is because the moisture absorption is less than . 1% compared to the 2.0% of Nylon normally employed for musical strings.

    Due to the higher density, similar to that of pure gut (1.30 gr/cm3), the New Nylgut® produces a better sound than Nylon and it is not as metallic sounding as those of the so- called ‘Carbon’ (Fluorocarbon) PVDF strings.

    The New Nylgut® features :

    1. a better sound than Nylon or PVDF, similar to the genuine gut strings;

    2. a more accurate fret-intonation due to the well gauged material;

    3. a very stable intonation under moisture changes.

    Colour: white
