I changed the strings on my (rather expensive) Big Island Honu Mango Convert ukulele, which for the money had been a little disappointing. Taking off the Aquilas and replacing with these Savarez strings transformed it. Now, it has punch, and percussive versatility across the strings. I think the Savarez strings are a little harder, but no more difficult to play. My standard fit from now on.

I also changed Worth Browns (which I really didn't like) on a Mahalo Concert and an instrument that I never used, now became a great little thing that I pick up any time. Highly recommended!

Did a video review of these - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_S-e2ZiVoQ8&list=UU2I01-EOVZI69hnZ2QAABFQ&index=8

Currently, in general I am much less happy with Aquilas than I ever was. They can be a little fat, which on a reso can be satisfying to play when the tone doesn't matter so much, but the fat C string can be dull sounding, and guitarists have this problem with the G string too. But it doesn't just depend on the strings - it also depends on the instrument. I've got a Kala SMHS which quickly acquired Worth fluorocarbons, as it was the only way to achieve any brightness. And I have a Tangelwood Cove Creek concert with Aquilas and a Kala solid acacia top concert with these Savarez, and the Tangelwood is brighter (hence the two stars). That is probably the fault of the Kala, but I suspect it will get a set of Worth FCs too (I've just taken Aquilas off it). Furthermore, I've got an Oscar Schmidt tenor which was insanely lively with Aquilas and is now much better under control with d'Addario high tension guitar strings. You'll have to use trial and error and not believe what people tell you about strings!

No, it's more complicated than that - something that is important is the friction between string and finger. If you are a strummer, then high friction means good loud chunky strumming, and the Savarez are too smooth. My feelings about Savarez then are probably coherent, but the Aquila Nylguts are excellent for their high resistance, and I'm starting to wonder how much this contradicts what I said above. Fluorocarbon has more surface friction than the Savarez but must be a denser material than nylgut, as the strings are thinner. This seems to make FC mostly desirable to me (or rather to my choice of instrument), Savarez mostly undesirable, and Nylgut a bit of a curate's egg in the middle somewhere.

I hate them, the E string is too short and doesn't keep the tension, I'm an amateur and I don't play very often, yet after a few months they look like I was playing my ukulele with a knife and now they sound sh*t when I first put them on they sounded ok... I've had aquilas on my soprano which I playa lot more often than my concert and they are still perfect, unlike these things... I'm sure I will not buy them again

I finally got round to fitting the Savarez strings to my Tangi Ukulele. They sound and feel so much better than the Aquilas I was using before. I was so impressed that I put a set on my Kala Tenor And am amazed at the transformation. These guys have been making top quality strings for classical guitars for many years. If you want the best try these you will not be dissapointed!
