Aquila - Sugarstrings
Originally developed for harps, it also offers interesting tonal possibilities for the lutenist / guitarist.
This string combines the softness and sweetness of gut with the clarity and attack of fluorocarbon.
The SHN strings are made from a bio-plastic based on sugar cane. Hence the name "Sugar" or "Sugar-Strings".
The density corresponds to that of plain gut strings - so sugar, nylgut and gut can each be used with the same diameters.
The tone of these strings is brilliant, clean and concise in attack, has great acoustic power as well as more sustain. Although the surface is extremely smooth, the grip on the fingers is remarkable, i.e. these are not slippery strings.
