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.

TECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS AND FIELD OF APPLICATION

The NGH strings (made with the New Nylgut®) are 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 NGH strings are its’ excellent resistance under tension -greater than that of gut – 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.

See this picture: which is the NGH string and which is the gut string?

IMPORTANT

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.
