From Aquila: 

The New Nylgut® is the first product developed and patented by Aquila.

The New Nylgut® is nor common Nylon or Carbon (Fluocarbon fishing line or PVDF), or a mix of them. It is a plastic compound of three different components

Compared to Nylon, the New Nylgut® produces a better sound and stays in tune better, this because the moisture absorption is less of .1% against the 2.0% of Nylon normally employed for the musical strings (i.e. Du Pont Tynex® polyammide 6-12).

Due to the higher density, similar to that of pure gut (1.30 gr/cm3), the New Nylgut® produces a better sound than Nylon and it is not so metallic like those of the so- called ‘Carbon’ (Fluorocarbon) PVDF strings.

In other words, the New Nylgut® is probably the first genuine syntetic gut in the world.

The New Nylgut® assures:

  1. a better sound than Nylon or PVDF, similar to the genuine gut strings;
  2. a more accurated fret-intonation due to the well gauged material;
  3. a very stable intonation under moisture changes.

    Saved my Banjolele intonation on my "C" string

    I was struggling to love my new Banjolene. The "C" string was fine when open, but went r-e-a-l-l-y sharp on the first and second frets - making me sound a lot worse than I actually am (admittedly, a very low bar).

    I ordered the "Red "C" version, installed it (a first time for me, changing up a string), tuned it up...and like musical magic, my intonation fell right into place. The best $14 musical investment that I've ever made.

    Sit in their package like champs!

    I bought these as a spare set of strings for my brand-new banjolele, and so far they have been sparing hard! Great job, backup product!
