Item Description

Aquila 155C Sugar 6 strings Classical Guitar Normal Tension

Designed in three degrees of tension normal 155C, superior 156C and extra 157C (the latter 157C to be used only for flamenco) and with a trasparent look that resembles crystal glass, the Sugar Guitar Trebles are made using a recently discovered Italian blend of a plastic material derived from sugar-cane.

The sound of these strings is clearly brilliant, clean and prompt, and provide great acoustic power. Unlike Fluorocarbon strings, these strings have an excellent vibrato and a remarkable timbre variation when played very close to the bridge and then up over the sound hole. Laboratory tests showed that Sugar strings have a projection of sound (measured in Joules) and a sustain respectively 24% and 18% more than fluorocarbon strings.

These strings have, in their extremes, the sweetness and singability of gut and the clearness and promptness typical of Fluorocarbon. Another important property is the characteristic sustain, which by scientific measurements is superior to any type of string currently available in the market. Another measured feature is the sound projection: our scientific tests have shown that it is superior to Fluorocarbon strings. Although the surface is extremely smooth, the grip on the fingers is remarkable; in other words it is never slippery.

NOTICE

In the event of a squeaking sound that appears at the beginning under the right hand fingers, it is suggested to use a hand lotion, or even better a softening paste used to adhere to sheets of paper

Great bright sounding strings
Made out of sugar cane, these strings are bright and powerfull. The bass strings are red in color and last longer than traditional silver coated strings. The treble string do have a squeaky sound that goes away with usage.

Sugar more fragile than nylon?
Strings have a very interesting sound. Nice sustain and plenty of volume, but is sugar more delicate/fragile than nylon? First string broke after only 6 days. Not at the nut or saddle, but right around the 3rd fret. Bought a few sets so I will try again and give it another chance. Maybe just got a bad set? Now with the new 50% increase (from $7.99) in price after the first 25% increase I'm not sure I'd buy them again if they keep breaking.
ProsLoud strings. Very nice sustain.
ConsSqueaks start happening out of nowhere but are minimized with any lotion applied to your hands. Trebles don't seem to last very long. You might need to change the compensation at the saddle as they are very good with intonation, or you might end up with flat notes past the 8th fret or so.
