Hurdy-Gurdy

The Hurdy Gurdy synthetic strings made by Aquila Corde, as well as the wound strings, are made with a recently discovered plastic material named “Sugar” because derived from the sugar- cane plant.

The sound of these strings is clearly brilliant, clean and prompt very similar to that of gut strings. Another important property is the characteristic sustain, which by scientific measurements is superior both to Nylon and gut strings.

Although the surface is extremely smooth, the grip is remarkable, for this reason they start vibrating easily, like gut, under the weel.

Moisture absorption is 100 times lower than Nylon strings. The Sugar polymer assures high acoustic performances, long life and stability to even sudden climate changes.

The Sugar density is the same of gut, so even the gauges are the same.
