By E. Gray
OMG! No really. These strings are a completely different animal. I have been playing on strings (guitar and ukes) for 30 years. I just got these from Amazon for my Kala baritone. Yes, the strings they replaced were also made by Aquila, but these red things are so different and enjoyable that I cannot help make the comparison that the switch was like going from driving a Honda Civic to driving a Bentley Continental (never actually been inside a Continental, but I can imagine....) these strings are are so true to pitch - and so rich in tone, with a bright attack and a warm (gut like) timbre which sustains nicely (forever) and I cannot recommend spending the extra 3 or 4 bucks to experience the sheer smokey velvet luxury of these strings (ok, that was a bit rich) but really they are fine, fine strings. BTW - I have never written a review for anything I have bought before this!

Favourite Ukulele Strings
By Bridjet E.
Love these strings. Whenever anyone hears me playing my ukulele, they're normally first taken aback at it's size (being a baritone and all) and secondly as the sound. These strings are beautiful, the low-d tuning is my favourite to begin with but these guys really work. I took my ukulele to Colorado and was expecting there would be some sort of problem with the change in elevation and weather so I bought a few extra packs but they didn't snap! They can also take a pretty serious beating, I haven't had to replace them. I was apprehensive when I first put them on because one of the strings snapped at the end, luckily there was enough left on top that I just re-threaded it and haven't had any problems sense. They took about a week to break in fully. If anyone is curious, I use a Caramel CB103 and I do use it for both electric and acoustic songs.

I put these strings on a new Kala KA-B Baritone Uke, and totally love them. I wasn't happy with the tone of the strings that came on the instrument. The Aquila's are a huge improvement, especially on the high-end. The finish on the B and the E is a little slippery, which takes some getting used to.The improvement in brightness of tone and in sustain are fantastic.
