Gauge and Type
  • Half rectified high twist unsplit lamb gut, 120cm length.

    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)

    If you have any questions about this, please contact us.

  • 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.

Please note that no matter what the Wix postage calculator shows for the shipping charges, which for international customers is usually far too high, we refund any excess shipping charge when we generate the shipping label.
