New strings from Italian Premium String maker Aquila Corde Armoniche - Super Nylgut.

Almost every ukulele player knows that Aquila have a  great reputation for their strings.

And I'd say most ukulele enthusiasts seem to agree that fitting a set of Aquilas are first and best way to improve a cheap ukuleles tone.

All the time I recommend to my beginner students that "fitting a set of Aquila Strings to a cheap ukulele will see instant volume and tone improvements that will knock you out.  Well worth the price of fitting a set."

So what makes these strings different than the regular Nylgut strings? 
The pearl color is slightly different to the regular Nylgut Strings.

But it is the smoother feel that will impress.

They feel great under your finger tips, and anything that makes your playing easier is good by me, having your finger tips feel better after a long session is a bonus ontop of the fuller tone.

The smother feel also makes for easier string slides and transitions, especially chromatic chordal slides (Blues players are going to love this) and for lead playing the Super Nylegut string is better as you can slide into notes easier.

Aquila also make claim that the Super nylgut strings  "ables to achieve the required pitch and stability in a few seconds".  And a greater acoustic output with a more penetrating sound than regular Nylguts.

The Tone and Volume balance between strings is really good.

I think they sound a little bit "fatter / fuller' sounding than the regular Nylgut Strings.

From the Aquila Site.
SUPERNYLGUT® sets: enjoy your playing with a superb new look and a better sound performance. We are proud to launch the upgraded version of our famous Nylgut® strings: the Supernylgut ukulele string have a charming natural pearl color and a very smooth and polished surface feels like wax.

So pleasant for your eyes and for your fingers!

They are also  less stretchy than any previous Nylgut® version , this resulting in a faster setting to proper tune when new and in a tendency of easily maintaining the intonation when reached. On top of this, Supernylgut is stronger and does not suffer from sharp edges of the nuts, marks from frets or hard nail playing.

And you can get all these upgrades together with the wonderful richness of tone which made our Nylgut® a success! Amazing!
