Item Description




Up to the middle of the 20th century, the only available strings for guitar were gut strings for Trebles and silk wound strings for basses: their acoustical performance was different from that of modern Guitar- setup. The salient characteristics of the past setups were: a marked tonal presence, response and brightness typical of the top gut string (certainly superior to plain nylon and in some respects closer to fluocarbon strings) while the basses, on the other hand, possessed an exquisitely vocal quality, i.e. not so bright as, and with less sustain than, modern wound on nylon strings and more fundamental heavy.

The Aquila Ambra 2000 set was born from the wish to search for sounds similar to gut strings, now almost completely forgotten, which first made the guitar great. The set is available in two tensions and is composed of Nylgut® trebles (with a small difference in their formulation, in order to achieve the best melodiousness, main target of this set) while basses, that we call ‘Rayon‘, are silver-plated copper wound on a red-colored multifilament core, for which we aimed to find the right balance between metal and core in order to recreate a warm and percussive sound, similar to silk basses.

The presence of more low frequencies (which are slightly absorbed in the distance) ensures better projection in the concert hall.

Work very well on one of my spruce top guitars. Smooth creamy sounding trebles, and the rayon core bass strings are very powerful and deep sounding.
