The Aquila 8U concert (alto) ukulele strings are made from New Nylgut, are tuned in GCEA, and contain a wound low G 4th string.
The New Nylgut ukulele strings are constructed from the first genuine synthetic material made to sound like a true gut string. With their high density construction from a proprietary plastic compound and consistent diameter along the entire length of the string they are a cut above the common nylon and flourocarbon strings on the market today. New Nylgut strings are denser and significantly more moisture resistant than gut. As a result they produce better sound, with improved intonation and stay in tune more consistently than their gut counterparts.
