BARITONE STRINGS #21U Aquila NYLGUT Baritone Uke, Key of G (same as guitar)..... 2 Wound Strings (3rd & 4th)
The Aquila 21U belongs to Aquila's Nylgut series, a series designed to reproduce the promptness of attack and brilliance of timbre that characterize original gut strings. Aquila aimed to design a synthetic string that has the same acoustic properties a gut, but without its typical limitations. The Nylgut series allows the player to rediscover the sonorities familiar to the great 19th and 20th century ukulele masters, while guaranteeing a stability of tuning higher than that of the even the best gut and nylon strings. Until the mid-20th century Ukuleles were mounted exclusively in gut, a material that had been used for thousand of years and that combines excellent promptness of attack with brilliance of timbre - very different, in other words, from modern nylon strings. And until recently the typical sound quality of gut has been a constant point of reference for luthiers, composers and performers alike.
