Aquila 1/2 Size Sugar Guitar strings – for Half Size Classical Guitars and the Cordoba Mini I
With a transparent look, the Sugar Guitar Trebles are made using a bio-plastic derived from sugar-cane that was recently discovered in Italy. Bass strings are made with a special red colored protective varnish that not only assures less noise under the fingers, but it also prevents allergic reactions to metals, and the unwanted oxidation processes that frequently occur on common strings with silver plated copper winding.
The sound of these strings is clearly bright, clean and prompt, and provide great acoustic power. Unlike Fluorocarbon strings, these strings surely provide an excellent vibrato and a remarkable timbre variation when changing the right hand position from near to the bridge to over the sound hole. Laboratory tests showed that Sugar strings have a sound power (measured in Joules) and a sustain respectively 18% and 24% more than Fluorocarbon strings. Thanks to the new treatment we were able to eliminate the 90% of “squeak” effect cases present in the previous versions.
Furthermore, these strings have both the sweetness and sing-ability of gut, and at the same time the clearness and promptness typical of Fluorocarbon. Even though the surface is extremely smooth, the grip on the fingers is remarkable. In other words, they never feel slippery.
