Until the mid-20th century, all Treble guitar strings were made of gut, a material that had been used for thousand of years that combines good promptness of attack and excellent performances . A fundamental aim of Aquila's research has been to design a new synthetic product that has the same acoustic properties as gut, but without its typical defects (high cost, short lifetime, high instability under moisture changes). Aquila's New Nylgut? has precisely these qualities without all the defects.

Its features include: promptness of attack, excellent performances, and a truly remarkable stability of intonation under moisture changes. The Alabastro Basses, wound with high quality- silver-plated copper, consist of a New Nylgut? multifilament core that ensures not only a high resistance to tensile stress but also a low absorption of both atmospheric humidity and sweat.

Good string for Yamaha NTX
December 29, 2020
I am using normal tension Alabastro strings on my Yamaha NTX1200, which I play fingerstyle exclusively. The neck on this guitar is narrower than standard classical guitars. I find that the width of strings themselves is key to whether it can be played cleanly. I like Aquila strings I have tried: Rubino, Zaffiro, and these Alabastro strings. I like the quality of the Aquila nylon, which feels much less "plasticky" than most nylon strings. They set up quickly and stay in tune in a couple days time. I would say these compare favorably with D'Addario Pro Arte strings I have tried for sound and I just like the Aquilas better for feel. On a full-size classical guitar, I might never have ventured to anything other than Pro Arte strings, but the Aquilas really suit a narrower neck and the sound is excellent. The normal tension Alabastro strings seem slightly harder than normal Pro Arte strings, which for me is not a bad thing. I will probably experiment with superior tension Alabastros as I think they might be optimum for my guitar and style.
ProsRelatively thin string Good feel -- nylon does not feel "plasticky" Normal tension leans a bit to the hard side Sets up and stays in tune quickly
ConsQualities I am looking for may not be what works best for traditional classical guitars though I would not hesitate to experiment myself If you prefer a normal string that leans to the soft side, this is not the one
