Aquila 21U New Nylgut baritone ukulele strings offer the authentic warm sound so characteristic of natural gut strings. Touted as “the world’s first genuine synthetic gut string,” the Aquila New Nylgut also boasts accurate and stable intonation thanks to the strings’ precise gauge and low moisture absorption rate (less than 0.1%, as opposed to regular nylon’s 2%). The 21U set consists of unwound trebles and wound basses — 3rd G with aluminum and 4th D with silverplated copper.
Similarly to natural gut, New Nylgut strings may be easily abraded by the sharp edges of your uke’s nut and bridge. To prevent this, polish any sharp edges before you string your uke; you can use sandpaper (grade 600 or finer) or grade 000 steelwool. Please note that if you purchase your uke from All Strings Nylon, all sharp edges will be polished for you during the free full setup we offer to our customers.
