Aquila Nylgut® Cuatro strings
Until the 1950’s, only gut cords were used for the Charango, Ronroco Timple
canario and the Cuatro, in which the quickness of the answer was joined with the
brilliance of the tones, being the sound very different with respect from the
present nylon cords.
Our investigative work has always had the objective to make an artificial cord that had the same acoustic properties of the gut cords, without its typical defects (short life time, high prices, excessive sensitivity to the atmospheric variations).
With the New Nylgut® we have been able to eliminate these defects, reproducing the original sound and tones of the Charango, Ronroco and Cuatro and at the same time guaranteeing an excellent tuning stability, with respect to which it can be produced with the best Nylon cords.
ATTENTION:Before placing the cords verify that the grooves
of the superior bridge does not have excessive depth and they are perfectly
smooth and without sharp or cutting edges or angles.
In order to obtain after few minutes a perfect stability of the tuning, it is advised, while tightening, pull each cord parallel to the sound board around the sound hole. Stop pulling when you notice that the cord stops stretching.
