New Nylgut®

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 Uke masters; and  guaranteeing, on the other, a stability of tuning higher even than that  of the best gut and nylon strings.
Just  like gut, the New Nylgut® is liable to suffer from cutting edges.  Before stringing the instrument do make sure the nut and bridge are free  from sharp edges and the nut grooves not too deep and perfectly  smooth. 
You can get rid of sharp edges with very fine grit sandpaper (600, for example) or the finest steelwool (000).
The best sound quality develops when the strings have completely set,  which may ordinarily take sometime. To achieve a stable intonation in  just a few minutes you can repeatedly pinch each string at midlength  with your fingers, pull it decidedly sideways and tune it up again. Stop  when the string does not pull out of tune anymore.
