Aquila's Charango sets are made using innovative materials, discovered and perfected after a long period of research and thorough testing, giving rise to a new synthetic product of high technology.

**PLEASE NOTE** Just like gut, Aquila's Nylgut® can suffer if it makes contact with sharp edges. Before stringing the instrument, make sure the nut and bridge are free from sharp edges and the nut grooves not too deep and perfectly smooth. You can get rid of sharp edges with very fine grit sandpaper (600, for example) or the finest steel wool (000).

Aquila also recommends breaking their strings to achieve faster tuning stability. Aquila says "The best sound quality develops when the strings have completely set, which may ordinarily take some time. To achieve a stable intonation in just a few minutes you can repeatedly pinch each string at midlength with your fingers, pull it decidedly sideways and tune it up again. Stop when the string does not pull out of tune anymore."

NB - This set has coloured ends to depict which string is which. These colours are as follows;

1st String - Red

2nd String - Blue

3rd String - Green

4th String - White

5th String - Yellow

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.
