Aquila's Nylgut strings are made using innovative materials, discovered and perfected in their laboratory after a long period of research and after being thoroughly tested, thus giving rise to a new synthetic product of high technology.

Important Information

1) Just like gut, the New Nylgut® is liable to suffer from cutting edges. Before stringing the instrument do 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 steelwool (000).

2) The best sound quality develops when the strings have completely 'settled in', which can take a bit of 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. Rinse and repeat this process until the tuning of the string stabilises.

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.
