Overview

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:

      Reasons to use low G ukulele string sets.
      1) The Bruddah Iz version of Somewhere Over The Rainbow demands those octave lower bass notes on the G string. Same could be said for most any song!
      2) For converts from guitar to ukulele, the low G string gives them the same exact intervals they're accustomed to on the guitar strings D and G which translate to G and C on the ukulele.
      Any riffs or bass lines they've been playing on guitar strings D and G will have the same tonal movement on strings G and C on the ukulele.
      It makes learning the ukulele much easier. Aquila is the only brand I know of that sells low G sets.
      These sets should be sold in the stores and the sales staff should let the customers know why. They should have at least one ukulele in the store that is strung with the low G so they could demonstrate it to their customers. They would sell more ukuleles!!!
