DETAIL OF EACH SET OF STRINGS

  Click on each product to see the details:   [toggle title=”Aquila Corde – Alabastro”] Until the middle of the 20th century, the high strings of the guitar were made of gut, a material used for hundreds of years that combines good attack and excellent performance. One of the main objectives of Aquila Corde’s research has been to design a synthetic material that preserves the acoustic properties of the casing, but without its characteristic defects (high cost, short life, high instability under environmental changes). The Supernylgut material developed by Aquila Corde has the qualities of the casing without these defects.

b_cat_aquila_alabastro Its features include good attack, excellent performance, true intonation stability under environmental changes. The Alabastro basses, wound with high-quality silver-plated copper, have a multifilament Supernylgut core, which ensures not only their high resistance but also a low absorption of both moisture and sweat. Alabastro is available in three tension modes. [/toggle] [toggle title=”Aquila Corde – Perla”] The treble strings are made with Bionylon multifilament, the first environmentally friendly synthetic material. Bionylon is a new material designed by Aquila Corde that has excellent acoustic and mechanical properties. Bionylon is made up of 63% plant derivatives, allowing a reduction of more than 30% CO2 during the polymer synthesis process compared to other nylon used in music strings. The basses, wound with high-quality silver-plated copper, consist of a New Nylgut multifilament core that ensures not only its high resistance but also a low absorption of both moisture and sweat.

This name is derived from the particular transparency typical of this material. The nylon of the Cristallo string set, thanks to its extremely smooth surface, is characterized by a velvety sound. The basses are made of silver plated copper, where the multifilament core is Supernylgut. This string set is only available in one tension type.

This represents a reduction of more than 50% of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere during the material synthesis process. The sound of this new type of material is particularly bright and immediate, just like fluorocarbon strings. The power of the sound is remarkable, along with a fast and stable tuning. The basses are made of silver plated copper, where the multifilament core is Supernylgut. This string set is only available in one tension type.

zaffiro   [/toggle] [toggle title=”Aquila Corde – Granato”] A unique style and a strong and consistent sound. Until now, it was necessary to increase the gauge of a string to achieve lower frequencies. But by increasing its diameter, so does its internal cushioning. This means that the string has a lower brightness and response and its sound is more muffled and muffled. Aquila Corde has launched a revolutionary approach to the problem by changing the specific weight of the material, progressively increasing it until leaving the caliber as little changed as possible.

granato   The result is incredible: the instrument sounds brighter, more powerful and more responsive throughout the entire range of the neck. Strings also maintain better intonation (since thicker strings need more pressure when playing, causing them to lose pitch). The GRANATO series guarantees superior performance compared to other traditional flamenco strings, and is intended for musicians who prefer a clean, sharp and powerful sound. You have never heard a sound like this, simply because it did not exist. Attention: the different percentages of metal powder incorporated into the polymer mean that the color varies slightly on each string.
