  • Aquila 4U Soprano Ukulele Strings Regular Tuning, Key of C, GCEA

String Length - 60cm

Product Description

For centuries, all natural gut strings were the only choice available to musicians. With modern production capabilities and the advent of nylon/plastic, came a longer lasting, more consistent string that was also more impervious to climate and humidity changes; HOWEVER, as it is with many modern "improvements" something was lost. The feel and action of true gut strings can't be matched. And to some, the authentic, traditional tone produced by gut strings can't be replaced either.Made from multiple strands of real animal (not cat) intestines, gut strings are the result of a slow, painstaking process that requires a relentless attention to detail. We at Aquila pursues the ways of Italy's past to bring us the finest gut strings available today. These strings also make an excellent choice for your vintage instruments.

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 Soprano Ukulele Strings 4U Nyglut GCEA Regular C-Tuning

Made cheap ukulele sound a heck better. Good tone and playability. Taking a fair while to settle in. Worth the wait though.
