Until the mid-20th century the top three strings of Ouds were mounted exclusively in gut, a material that had been used for thousand of years and that combines excellent promptness of attack with brilliance of timbre - very different, in other words, from modern nylon strings.
And until recently the typical sound quality of gut has been a constant point of reference for Oud-makers, composers and performers alike. A fundamental aim of our research has therefore been to make a new synthetic product having the same acoustic properties as gut - but without its typical defects - (high cost, limited duration and high instability under varying climatic). The New Nylgut® has precisely these qualities: allowing one, on the one hand, to rediscover the sonorities familiar to the great 19th and 20th century Oud masters; and guaranteeing, on the other, a stability of tuning higher even than that of the best gut and nylon strings. 1st c: 2x New Nylgut®; 2nd g: 2x New Nylgut®; 3rd d: 2x wound; 4th A: 2x wound; 5th F: 2x wound; 6th C: 1x wound
