Aquila Corde uses a logical system of numbering gauges; they are the metric diameter, while leaving off the decimal point.
For example, a 60 gut string is 0.60mm in diameter, within a tolerance of 0.01mm.
For players who are currently using strings that use the numbering method used by Pirastro, Dlugolecki, and perhaps some other makers, multiply that gauge number by 5 to determine the metric gauge.
Therefore, a 12 in their numbering system is a 60 in the metric system. (5x12=60)

We suggest trying HU strings before trying V type strings, as they generally function very well in this position and are somewhat less expensive. Be aware that the V type strings are somewhat larger and may require some changes in the setup. Be sure that your instrument needs a more flexible D string before ordering. Thanks.
