Item Description

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

Its features include promptness of attack, excellent performances and a truly remarkable stability of intonation under moisture changes.

Size: Concert

Tuning: In Fifths – mandolin tuning

Set/Strings: CONCERT SET CGDA

Code: 31U

Great strings suitable for mandolin tuning on concert, tenor and baritone ukes
August 29, 2018
I have tried these strings on a baritone (tuned to GDAE like an octave mandolin), a tenor (AEBF#), and a concert (CGDA) and all sound fine. The strings are still going strong after a year in use on these three instruments.

Remarkable!

I'm generally not a huge fan of Aquila strings - I prefer smaller gauges like you find on fluorocarbons. But I picked up a pack of these, installed them on my Octopus concert, tuned it to BflatFCG and WOW! I can hardly put it down. I did have to adjust the thickest string's nut slot - very easy to do. If you have an extra concert uke lying around and want to broaden your range of playability, grab a set of these. So much fun!
Pros
  • Warm tone
  • Depth
  • Easy to practice mandolin tunings
  • Comfortable to play
  • Addictive
Cons
  • Requires slight adjustment to nut slot
