Aquila Supernylgut strings are recognised far and wide as the ukulele strings of choice for the majority of players. As part of Aquila’s ongoing mission to bring music to all aspects of society, these new KIDS strings have all the tone characteristics of the Supernylgut sets but are supplied in bright colours to help young beginners learn the strings of their instrument. The use of colours in music education is already very common but had not translated to the ukulele fretboard until now. The coloured strings identify the open string notes:
A = Blue
E = Yellow
C = Red
G = Green
Now teachers can teach note recognition by colour and allow the whole class to progress quickly regardless of varying ability levels within their classes. Produced in Italy by Aquila using their own extruding machines, these well balanced string gauges are great for soprano ukuleles. Add a set to your basket along with a new ukulele and we can fit them for you before shipping!
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 and is a perfect synthesis of the acoustical properties of Nylon and of PVF strings. Nylgut's formula is protected by U.S. and International patents.
