Augustine Strings was founded by Albert Augustine in 1940 in New York. At that time, classical guitar strings we made of animal gut (usually sheep) which meant that string quality was inconsistent and as animal gut was being used as field sutures in the war effort at the time, strings were also in short supply. Albert Augustine began experimenting with the newly invented material Nylon which the DuPont company had patented 5 years earlier. After a huge amount of experimentation with materials and metals, Albert Augustine found that bass strings made of a multifilament core wound with silver produced the optimum sound for the bass strings. And so, the standard of classical strings was set by Augustine Strings, the inventor of nylon guitar strings and still the gold standard for classical guitar strings globally.
