Until the middle of the twentieth century, for the Cuatro and other folkloric instruments of Venezuela, only gut strings were used, in which the speed of the response was combined with the brilliance in the nuances, the sonority being different from the current nylon strings. . The research work of Aquila Corde Armoniche has always aimed to achieve an artificial string that has the same acoustic properties of gut strings, without its typical defects (short duration, high prices, excessive sensitivity to atmospheric variations). With Nylgut® it has been possible to eliminate these defects, being able to reproduce the timbre and the original nuances of the Cuatro, guaranteeing at the same time an excellent stability of the intonation.
