Item Description

All Nylgut Strings

A fundamental aim of Aquila's research has been to make a new synthetic product having the same acoustic properties as gut, but without its typical defects - (high cost, limited duration and high instability under varying climates). The New Nylgut has precisely these qualities allowing one to rediscover the sonorities familiar to the great 19th and 20th century Uke masters and guaranteeing a stability of tuning higher even than that of the best gut and nylon strings.


Just like gut, the New Nylgut is liable to suffer from cutting edges. Before stringing the instrument, make sure the nut and bridge are free from sharp edges and the nut grooves are not too deep and perfectly smooth. 
You can get rid of sharp edges with very fine grit sandpaper or the finest steel wool.

The best sound quality develops when the strings have completely set, which may take sometime. To achieve a stable intonation in just a few minutes, you can repeatedly pinch each string at mid length with your fingers, pull it sideways, and tune it up again. Stop when the string does not pull out of tune anymore.

These things are ol' faithful. They do the job and make your Uke sound decent in the process. I leave a pack of these in my bag just incase something weird happens out in the wild. I recommend these for a few reasons, but mostly their sound and life. They have pretty long life, and sound pretty good.
  • They have pretty good life; they sound good; and feel pretty good on the pluckn' hand.
  • When they go, they go. Every now and then, you will get a pack that will start loosing tone then totally blow out after a few weeks.

The best strings you can put on a ukulele
September 17, 2017
I have tried all sorts of ukulele strings and the best, by far, are Aquila. I'm particularly partial to the nylgut and have never once had an issue with the string cutting on the nut or bridge. These simply are the very best available.
  • Sound, clarity, intonation, endurance, feel, tension, etc.
  • The only possible con is that they're a little more expensive and maybe a bit of a waste of money if you're putting them on an entry level ukulele. These things belong on a quality instrument and are worth every penny.
