Aquila New Nylgut Series Strings
The New Nylgut® is the first product developed and patented by Aquila. The New Nylgut® is neither common Nylon, nor Carbon (Fluocarbon fishing line or PVDF), or a mix of them. It is a plastic compound of three different components
Compared to Nylon, the New Nylgut® produces a better sound and stays in tune better because the moisture absorption is less of .1% against the 2.0% of Nylon normally employed for the musical strings (i.e. Du Pont Tynex® polyammide 6-12).
Due to the higher density, similar to that of pure gut (1.30 gr/cm3), the New Nylgut® produces a better sound than Nylon and it is not so metallic like those of the so- called ‘Carbon’ (Fluorocarbon) PVDF strings. The manufacturer believes the New Nylgut® is probably the first genuine synthetic gut in the world. The New Nylgut® assures:
- A better sound than Nylon or PVDF, similar to genuine gut strings;
- A more accurate fret intonation due to the well gauged material;
- A very stable intonation under moisture changes.
