Aquila Alabastro 20C Classical Guitar Strings (Superior Tension, Nylgut)

Aquila Alabastro 20C Classical Guitar Strings (Superior Tension, Nylgut)

  • Made in Italy Aquila Alabastro SUPERNYLGUT is the upgraded version of Aquila’s famous Nylgut strings. The synthetic material Super Nylgut (synthetic gut) have the same acoustic properties as gut – but without its typical defects – (high cost, limited duration and high instability under varying climatic).

Aquila Alabastro Superior Tension Classical Guitar Strings – 20C, Full Set
Classical Guitar Strings with Superior Tension – polished white (non-rectified) Nylgut trebles with silver-plated copper over Nylgut multifilament basses. Superior Tension

20C ALABASTRO High tension set for classical guitar. Until the mid-20th century all Treble guitar strings were made in gut, a material that had been used for thousand of years and that combines good promptness of attack and excellent performances . A fundamental aim of our research has therefore been to design a new synthetic product having the same acoustic properties as gut, but without its typical defects (high cost, short lifetime, high instability under moisture changes). Our Supernylgut® has precisely all these good qualities without all these defects.

Its features include promptness of attack, excellent performances and a truly remarkable stability of intonation under moisture changes. The Alabastro Basses, wound with high quality- silver-plated copper, consist of a Supernylgut® multifilament core that ensures not only a high resistance to tensile stress but also a low absorption of both atmospheric humidity and sweat.
