AQUILA NYLGUT CLASSIC BANJO STRINGS 5 STRING SET
Genuine Gut Strings Accurate Intonation
Until the mid-20th century Banjos were mounted exclusively in gut, a material that had been used for thousand of years and that combines excellent promptness of attack with brilliance of timbre – very different, in other words, from modern nylon strings.
And until recently the typical sound quality of gut has been a constant point of reference for lute-makers, composers and performers alike.
A fundamental aim of our research has therefore been to make a new synthetic product having the same acoustic properties as gut – but without its typical defects – (high cost, limited duration and high instability under varying climatic). The New Nylgut® has precisely these qualities: allowing one, on the one hand, to rediscover the sonorities familiar to the great late 19th and 20th century masters; and guaranteeing, on the other, a stability of tuning higher even than that of the best gut and nylon strings.
A better sound than Nylon or PVDF, similar to the genuine gut strings.
A more accurate fret-intonation due to the well gauged material.
A very stable intonation under moisture changes.
