INTRODUCTION

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 our research. The New Nylgut® represents the fruit of this research and is a good synthesis of the acoustical properties of nylon and of PVF (carbon) strings.

See this picture: which is the New Nylgut and which is the gut string?

TECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS AND FIELD OF APPLICATION

The New Nylgut®, distinguishable for its gut color, has the same gut’s density (gauges are the same of the gut) and acoustical qualities similar to that material. It should be considered the first “synthetic” version of the natural product.
Other strong points of the New Nylgut® are its’ elevated resistance under tension -greater than that of gut (till 305 Hz/mt) – but even more important is its extraordinary immunity to changes of climate, considerable superior to that of nylon and gut, thereby guarantying an insuperable stability of tuning under normal conditions.
The New Nylgut® can be used advantageously for the substitution of nylon and gut strings for plucked string instruments such as lutes, guitars and harps(modern harps included). For example, the New Nylgut® strings are particularly well suited for the 1st through 5th courses of the renaissance and d minor-baroque lutes, FRETS INCLUDED.

Special length (200 cm): see the NGE type..

Notice: The New Nylgut® is liable to suffer from cutting edges. Before stringing the instrument do make sure the nut and bridge are free from sharp edges and the nut grooves not too deep and perfectly smooth.
You can get rid of sharp edges with very fine grit sandpaper (600, for example) or the finest steelwool (000).

IMPORTANT

The best sound quality develops when the strings have completely set, which may ordinarily take sometime. To achieve a stable intonation in just a few minutes you can repeatedly pinch each string at midlength with your fingers, pull it decidedly sideways and tune it up again. Stop when the string does not pull out of tune anymore.
