Welcome to Aquila bulk strings
Our company produces strings in big quantities according to industrial criteria, in form of standard of 2,000 strings per bundle having all the same diameter.
All this was made possible thanks to our three extruder plants with laser control for checking the gauge and roundness of the finished product.
Capacity: 300,000 single ukulele strings per day; 100,000 single guitar strings per day
These are our standard products:
Aquila NEW NYLGUT®
The New Nylgut® is the first product developed and patented by Aquila.
The New Nylgut® is nor common Nylon or Carbon (Fluocarbon fishing line or PVDF), or a mix of them. It is a plastic compound of three different components
Compared to Nylon, the New Nylgut® produces a better sound and stays in tune better, this because the moisture absorption is less of .1% against the 2.0% of Nylon normally employed for the musical strings (i.e. Du Pont Tynex® polyammide 6-12).
Due to the higher density, similar to that of pure gut (1.30 gr/cm3), the New Nylgut® produces a better sound than Nylon and it is not so metallic like those of the so- called ‘Carbon’ (Fluorocarbon) PVDF strings.
In other words, the New Nylgut® is probably the first genuine syntetic gut in the world.
The New Nylgut® assures:
1) a better sound than Nylon or PVDF, similar to the genuine gut strings
2) a more accurated fret-intonation due to the well gauged material
3) a very stable intonation under moisture changes
Bionylon® is a musical polyamide developed recently by us and extruded at our headquarter.
It is a 100% a natural plant’s derivate (castor oil). This assure less of 50% carbon dioxide emission during the production.
The moisture absorption is very low, comparable to those of PA 6-12 (the common classical guitar’s Nylon). The performances are excellents.
Ukulele strings: vegetal green colour.
Guitar strings: natural pearl colour.
Bionylon® strings are the first eco-friendly musical strings in the world!
Aquila THUNDERGUT® strings
(elastic plastic with superior characteristics compared to the common black polyurethane and silicone rubber strings)
Thundergut® is a special very elastic and dense material developed by us in our headquarter that assure superior performances over the common polyuretane and silicon rubber bass strings available in the market.
Thundergut® assure fast and stable intonation; no sweet finger’s slip on the strings.
Suitable for Bass ukuleles.
Advice: these strings are designed for 18 till 21 inch scale only! If the scale is longher please contact us.
We can define Silkgut® like a cousin of the New Nylgut®.
The difference between New Nylgut® and Silkgut® is that the Silkgut® is a bit stiffer than New Nylgut®.
In other therms it last longer under the finger nails of guitar- players.
Silkgut® is suitable for classical guitar Trebles and modern Harp’s strings.
