Classical guitar - Aquila Alchemia

The Alchemia Trebles are made using a recently discovered Italian blend of a plastic material derived from sugar-cane and a certain percentage of Nylgut. The sound of these strings is clearly brilliant like Fluorocarbon strings, clean and prompt.

 

The strings have an excellent vibrato and a remarkable timbre variation when played very close to the bridge and then up over the sound hole. In other words, they have, in their extremes, all the sweetness and singability of gut together with the clearness and promptness typical of Fluorocarbon.

 

Another characteristic property is the sustain, which by scientific measurements has been proven to be superior to any other type of string currently available in the market. Another measured feature is the sound projection: the scientific tests performed by Aquila Corde have shown that it is superior to Fluorocarbon strings, but it’s lower than the projection of the Sugar set. Although the surface is extremely smooth, the grip on the fingers is remarkable; in other words it is never slippery.
