New! Aquila SUPERNYLGUT®
January 2014 We are proud to launch the upgraded, ultimate version of our famous white Nylgut® strings. The SUPERNYLGUT® ukulele string have a charming natural pearl color instead the milky white one and a very smooth and polished surface feels like wax. They are also pretty pliable but less stretchy than any previous Nylgut® version , this resulting in a faster setting to proper tune when new and in a tendency of easily maintaining the intonation when reached.
This help to do the tuning operation faster dropping the general production costs.
On top of this, Supernylgut is stronger and does not suffer from eventually sharp edges of the nuts, marks from frets or hard nail playing. And you can get all these upgrades together with the wonderful richness of tone which made our Nylgut® a success. Suitable for Ukulele & Guitar
SUPERNYLGUT® strings will replace, step-by step- the traditional Ukulele & Guitar white Aquila strings
Bionylon® is a musical polyamide developed recently by us and extruded at our headquarter.
It is a 100% a natural plant’s derivate (castor oil). This assure less of 50% carbon dioxide emission during the production.
The moisture absorption is very low, comparable to those of PA 6-12 (the common classical guitar’s Nylon). The performances are excellents.
Ukulele strings: vegetal green colour.
Guitar strings: natural pearl colour.
Bionylon® strings are the first eco-friendly musical strings in the world!

Aquila RED SERIES® (the first alternative to the metal wound strings)
Who never dreamed of tuning the ukulele in low G, without expensive and fast rusty metal wound strings?
Wound strings shows problems that on ukulele are very considered:
- shorter lifetime than the treble strings
- sound power too bright and intrusive compared to the plastic treble strings
- excessive sustain
- noise caused by the fingers of the left hand
- rapid oxidation of the metal wire during the storage & after a certain time
We are happy to announce that the unwound fourth strings now finally exist. From now, you will finally be able to install ukulele in Low G ensuring sound power,sound quality and intonation on frets fully integrated with that of the upper treble strings.
Granted: no oxidation of the metal wire in case of acid sweat!
- Color: red-brown
- Surface: slightly rough; this texture has eliminated the squeak that sometime hapen with the Nylguts.
- Elasticity/Elongation: like Nylgut & Supernylgut strings
- Performances: They do not breacks under stretching. fast and stable tuning
- Intonation: accurate past the 12th fret
- Pressing strongly the string on the frets, the note does not became sharper
- It is not necessary to file the nut slot wider
