Aquila 42U Nylgut Banjo Ukulele Strings (Regular Tuning)
Aquila strings are the string of choice for Ukulele players worldwide. Nylgut is neither common Nylon nor Carbon (Fluocarbon fishing line or PVDF), or a mix of the two. It is a plastic compound of three different components.
Compared to nylon, Nylgut produces a better sound and stays in tune longer. This is because the moisture absorption is less than 0.1% compared to the 2.0% of nylon normally employed for musical strings.
Due to the higher density - similar to that of pure gut (1.30 gr/cm3) - Nylgut produces a better sound than nylon and it is not as metallic as other string sets. Nylgut is the first genuine synthetic gut in the world.
