Aquila Alabastro Classical Guitar Strings 19C Normal Tension
Until the mid-20th century, all Treble guitar strings were made from gut, a material that had been used for thousands of years and that combines good promptness of attack and excellent performances. A fundamental aim of Aquila's 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). The New Nylgut® strings have precisely all these good qualities without all these defects. Its features include promptness of attack, excellent performances and truly remarkable stability of intonation under moisture changes. The Alabastro Basses, wound with high-quality silver-plated copper, consist of a New Nylgut® multifilament core that ensures not only a high resistance to tensile stress but also a low absorption of both atmospheric humidity and sweat.

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.
