Product Description

Nylgut by Aquila is a new synthetic material that imitates the superior acoustical characteristics of gut but without the typical defects such as high cost, short string life, poor intonation and severe instability to changes of climate. Nylgut has a specific density and tonal quality nearly identical to that of gut, and is the first truly successful synthetic version of the natural product.

Aquila are the best ukulele strings available in my opinion. If more ukes had them fitted from new shops would sell more instruments. They can even make a very inexpensive ukulele sound miles better. They can take a few more days of playing to stretch and settle in but the retuning in that time is well worth it. Worth is another brand of ukulele strings which are also very good. I have used them also but have returned now to Aquila.

On a whim,I bought a cheap ukelele from a charity shop.It was okay, but I had a lot of trouble tuning the cheap plastic strings and when I finally managed to it sounded awful and didn't encourage me to learn to play.When one of the strings broke I bought these, which were about half the price of the ukelele itself, but they have transformed the instrument.My uke now sounds like it cost much more than it did.The sound is now much,much better and they are easier to tune and to actually use and I would highly recommend them.Fantastic!

The strings as supplied on my Epeiphone Les Paul Uke to be fair weren't that bad but having read a number of reviews on these I thought I would try a set and I'm glad I did what an improvement they have made to my uke's sound quality - fantastic product. I will definitely be making these my stock standards in future. Nice clear sound all round, they took a little while to tune in but once fully stretched they are now holding tune beautifully. Bit more expensive than some but in this case you really do get what you pay for.

For me these are the best strings. Always get good quality and reliable manufacturing process. They really brighten up any Uke even a cheap Mahalo or something similar. Do expect a week of settling in and stretching. After this they will hold their tune very well. If they continue to need tuning after this check you turning pegs or gears, they may need a tighten.

I bought these strings because I've already had some for my soprano uke so I knew what a difference it makes to the sound, they are a lot better than the original ones which come on the ukes, they seem to give a better tone and also when I originally read the reviews about them-they were nearly all on five stars (and rightly so too) I would definitely recommend them

these strings really do make a ukulele sound better possibly the best make on the market,they seem to settle down quicker as well and the good thing is they are no more expensive than the inferior strings, I would buy these every time and fully recommend them their the best.

Aquila strings are considered by many to be the best.Strings are a question of individual choice.I use them on a concert size Uke and they are superb,however I prefer Worth fluorocarbon clears on my soprano.But if anybody wants a string that will improve the sound on uke then Aquila strings will do nicely.Try them and see.
