All strings with a diameter greater than 0.50 mm are made exclusively with high torsion and undergo a special treatment aimed at maximum elasticity for easy response and long life for the best acoustic results.
The varnish used by AQUILA guarantees perfect compatibility with the elasticity of the gut, perfect contact with the bow hairs, maximum protection against wear and insensitivity to climatic variations. These strings are lacquered up to a diameter of 1.70 mm. From the following diameter the strings are only oiled (double basses and violones).
The standard length is 120 cm up to a diameter of 1.90 mm. From diameter 2.00 the standard length is 180 cm.
