One of the main purposes in the research made by Aquila Corde has been designing a new synthetic product, which will meet all the acoustic qualities of gut but without the associated flaws (high cost, short life and instability to the environmental changes).
New Nylgut precisely meets all the qualities of the gut without its flaws. Its main features include the speed of attack, excellent performance and remarkable stability in the tuning under environmental changes.
Not only the colour is quite similar to the gut but also the new nylgut is more resistant and stable (break index similar to PVF, 305 HZ/mt).
- STRING: Synthetic string
- COLOUR: Similar to gut
- MATERIALS: Nylgut
- LENGTH: 120cm.
- GAUGES: from 0.38 to 2.40
- EQUIVALENCE: Diameters are expressed in equivalent solid gut (i.e. a Aquila New Nylgut 0.73 is equivalent to 0.73 mm gut string).
- SUITABLE FOR: Historical harps
- To achieve a stable intonation in just a few minutes you can repeatedly pinch each string at midlength with your fingers, pull it decidedly sideways and tune it up again. Stop when the string does not pull out of tune anymore.
