OVERVIEW

Highly polished to a smooth surface.

Aquila's Nylgut Concert 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.

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.

    My preferred concert ukulele strings. Same strings that came on my Alvarez Tenor Ukulele. Like them so much that I bought these for my wife's concert ukulele.

        Comments about AQUILA 50184 Concert Ukulele Strings:

        Quality strings, easy to install and retain tuning after normal stretching. Aquilas are the go to string for budget priced ukes but they don't necessarily sound great on every ukulele. The tone on my Lanakai is a little too bright and harsh for my taste on this particular Uke with these strings. Just my personal taste but the feel of the strings also a bit too harsh. I have aquilas on a Luna Uke that sound & feel great so it's a possible consistency issue. I plan to keep these on for a while then try another brand. I think it's a good practice to try different strings to find ones that have the tone and feel you desire.

            Just put strings on so this review is young, but sounds crisp, rich, full. Aquila seems to be living up to its high reputation and expectations. These strings have brought life back into my uke.

              Comments about AQUILA 50184 Concert Ukulele Strings:

              I got these because I read in multiple places that strings that come with a new instrument are usually the worst you can find. They were in need of a good stretching before I could pluck the same note twice without retuning. That seems to be normal. Once that was done and I properly tuned up the strings, I noticed that these strings ring more than the old ones. There is a definite component of the tone that was not there before. I like it.

              These aren't the strings that cost a house payment, were plucked from the mane of a flying horse on the 29th of February and dipped in the whiskey of a dying rock star. That doesn't matter to me. I think they serve their purpose well and do sound better than the stock strings.
