The New Nylgut partially elastic!

New Nylgut logo

INTRODUCTION

NGE elastic strings, diameters from .62 to 1.45 mm; length: 180 cms.
Colour: like gut

FIELD OF APPLICATION

These strings are specifically designed for particularly long diapasons of Archlutes, Chitarrones and Theorbos.

Their main feature is certainly their prompt and bright acoustic performance, comparable (as Theorbo diapasons) with that of loaded gutstrings, noticeably superior to that of plain gut. Also to be noted is the remarkable resistance to wear and tear and the stability against climatic changes.

For the first time it is used a special version of new Nylgut, i.e. partially elastic.

The percentage of elasticity introduced in the basic molecule is fully controlled by us and allows an even excellent performance in the low frequencies compared to the NGE strings of old production. Thanks to their flexibility these strings bend without any effort at the bridge holes.

WARNING: The diameter of NGE strings is now expressed in ‘equivalent gut’.

The strings are marked with a letter NGE preceded by a number indicating the diameter of the equivalent plain gut. So for example the string 140 NGE indicates a string that corresponds, for calculations, to a natural gut of 1.40 mm. Of course, the actual diameter of the string is different but at the same frequency it will have the same working tension of a gut string of 1.40 mm.

In conclusion, 140 NGE string will not have an actual diameter of 1.40 mm while the working tension will be the same of a gut string of 1.40 mm.

ATTENTION:
In order to obtain in a few minutes a perfectly stable intonation weadvise to pull laterally and with gentle force each
string while tuning and continue the tuning process until the string stops decreasing in pitch.
