Product Description

Aquila Nylgut strings started a revolution in 1997 when they were released, following a long and difficult process of research and development. Enjoying the feel and, crucially the sound of genuine gut strings, Nylgut does not suffer from the problems of tuning and longevity associated with gut strings. Gut strings are extremely vunerable to changes in Humidity, and break much more easily than other core materials! Aquila Nylgut strings solve both these problems, and yet offer exactly the same acoustic properties. These are a great choice for all uke players and highly recommended!Aquila nylgut ukulele sets are all made from totally innovative materials, discovered and perfected at Aquila's Italian laboratories after a long period of research and testing carried out on the newest synthetic materials.Soprano ukulele set, key of C1st(G)2nd(C)3rd(E)4th(A)

5.0 out of 5 stars Aquila Nylgut Soprano Ukulele strings 26 Feb 2012
By Janet
Wow!! I bought these strings on recommendation. I only needed spares, really, just in case a string broke, so I just put them in my uke case. When the strings I already had (the originals from new) started to sound dull and needed frequent re-tuning, I decided to bite the bullet and change them for the Aquila ones. It was the first time I'd actually changed the strings, so was naturally a bit nervous! However, I changed them one at a time, following the instructions - dead easy, as the strings were colour-coded. I was really pleased with myself, and now they have settled in I hardly ever have to tune them. And the best bit is that my uke sounds so much better. You wouldn't think a change of strings would make so much difference - but it does! I bought a cheap beginner's ukulele on which to learn, intending to buy a better one if it all worked out OK, but having changed the strings I'm certainly not changing it - it sounds brilliant and I love it! I only wish I had changed the strings sooner, but I never believed it would make that much difference. I wholeheartedly, 100%, recommend these strings - they're brilliant!

Oh yes ..... and the delivery was very prompt!

All in all, I'm a very happy bunny!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fan-Tas-Tic. 17 Jan 2012
Just put these strings on my £15 Gloss Black Mahalo ukulele, thought it sounded good before, well now sound like a Ukulele worth £30-£40. Sharper notes and sustains notes better. Have used them before on my £100 Mahalo Koa, made a bit of difference, but WOW has transformed my little "Black". BUY THEM!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars aquila ukelele strings 16 Aug 2011
these are first rate strings which have improved the tone of my very moderately priced ukelele no end. I have a banjo/ukelele whioh I am now considering fitt
ing with these particular strings. My only query is regarding the thickness of the strings as the ones on my banjo/uke (japanese make) are very thin. The only criticism I would make, and this is very unfair as I have not informed the company, is that the "C" string is quite short and only turns around the tuning peg three times whereas the other three strings are of ample length.

Overall impression are that these are extremely good strings and well worth the money.

I've been playing the uke for a few years now, and I've just got myself a nicer instrument Ashbury AU-34S Soprano Uke. I wasn't sure whether the cost was justified to begin with, but once fitted with these strings, the uke has a really strong, sweet, ringing sound and I'm playing now more than ever! I bought them on a recommendation, and now I'm recommending them to every uke player I know... I haven't tried traditional gut strings myself, but I know a couple of serious players who have, and they now swear by Aquila too!

Apparently, these strings give the sound of gut strings, without the hassle of constantly changing and tuning that real gut involves. I don't know about that to be honest, but these are really nice strings! I'm not going back, and my ashbury concert uke Ashbury AU-60 Concert Ukulele (Ukelele) is next in line for an upgrade.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great strings 5 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
I bought a ukulele that had cheap strings that needed constantly tuning, when i replace with these strings the quality of sound vastly improved. Easy to replace, they come in colour coded packs so it's easy to tell which string is which. The strings did not need tuning as often and gave a better sound.
