  • Aquila 88U Red Series Nyglut Tenor Ukulele Full Set with wound Low G-4th

Full set of Aquila Red Series Strings designed for Tenor Low G Tuning.

Starting with Nylgut, Aquila adds red copper powder to increase the density of the string to almost twice as much. This results in a stiffer string capable of lower tunings, less breakage and better intonation. Filing of the nut slot may be required.

IMPORTANT:
To avoid potential problems, please make sure the string slot in the nut is wide enough. This is easily determined by putting the string in the slot and visually checking the fitment before installing the string. A radiused lower edge at the fingerboard side is also very important. Some ukes have a sharp lower edge. These strings are very reliable under correct conditions.

Aquila Corde Armoniche produced all of their products in house in Vicenza, Italy.  Striving to fortify the use of traditional string making techniques in the 21st Century, Aquila Corde began experimenting in 1994 with numerous different plastic and additive mixes pestering large fishing line companies to let them test in small quantities.  It wasn’t until 1997 when the first Nylgut set of strings was born boasting the mechanical properties of plastic with the superior acoustical properties of gut.  Aquila had also previously designed the ‘gut loading process’ that combines a metallic, copper powder with roped gut strings.  Aquila Corde have more recently introduced the Silkgut, Bionylon and Thundergut that have all closed the gab between synthetics and natural gut.

Aquila 88U Red Series Nyglut Tenor Ukulele Full Set with wound Low G-4th

Responsive strings, good tone, unique appearance. They took several days to stretch until the tuning was stable, but this may be my restringing technique - it's the first time I've changed strings on a slot-head uke!
