OVERVIEW

Highly polished to a smooth surface.

Aquila's Nylgut Low G Tenor Ukulele strings are comprised of a synthetic plastic compound that stays in tune with accurate fret intonation. With a density similar to pure gut, Nylgut produces a natural sound and is stable under moisture changes. Designed for Low G tuning.

The development of a new synthetic material that can imitate the acoustical characteristics of gut but without the typical defects such as high cost, short string life, and severe instability to changes of climate, has always been a fundamental goal of Aquila's research. Nylgut is the result. Nylgut's formula is protected by U.S. and International patents.

Nylgut has a specific density and acoustical qualities nearly identical to that of gut, and is the first truly successful synthetic version of the natural product.

Other strong points of Nylgut are its elevated resistance to wear under tension-greater than that of gut-but even more important is its extraordinary immunity to changes of climate, considerably better than that of Nylon and thereby ensuring a superior stability of tuning under normal conditions.

Nylgut strings are quickly becoming the choice of ukulele players worldwide. Some say their instruments have been transformed by Nylgut strings. Nylgut strings for ukuleles are highly polished to a smooth surface.

        Comments about AQUILA 53117 Low G Tenor Ukulele Strings:

        Best strings, intonation improved, however the low G (wound) may have 'fret bumps' (all wound nylon or nylgut can produce bumps at frets due to fretting). Ukuleles tend to have higher frets, so this can be an issue.

          Comments about AQUILA 53117 Low G Tenor Ukulele Strings:

          These have a girthy feel and tune up without undo stretching. I've never used cat gut but I like how these synthetics sound and feel. I'm presently using the low G set so the low sting is wound.

            Comments about AQUILA 53117 Low G Tenor Ukulele Strings:

            Put these on as a replacement to the stock strings that came on my Cordoba tenor ukulele, what a massive improvement. I wish that someone had told me about the 'Low G' string sets a long time ago! These bring a whole new life and tonality to my uke, it is much more usable now for all kinds of music. Love these stings, and the tone is full and beautiful too, much more so than I would have ever expected from a ukulele.
