Aquila Uke Strings
What a difference these strings make in the quality of sound my ukulele produces. It'll be the only brand for me in the future.

low wound G set
I am not a highly skilled uke player (I'm a simple song strummer) but I can say I have been very happy with these strings from JustStrings. The A and E strings did stretch a lot so don't put many turns on the pegs to start with. After about a week of settling-in, my uke sounded great. The Low G makes my uke sound much richer.

With proper installation and stretching time, they retain their great tone and stability long after other strings have given up. I use Aquila strings for all of my ukuleles and classical guitars exclusively, and they hold up to extended professional use show after show.

I love the strings I purchased from you. I will be purchasing more very soon. Thank you for your great prices & service
IMPORTANT INSTALLATION INFORMATION:

Nylgut is a completely different material than Nylon and needs a bit of extra care during installation because of its soft surface and different molecular structure.

First check that the string channels in the nut are rounded and have no sharp edges, especially the lower edges facing the fingerboard. Because the string approaches from a slightly downward angle, if that edge is sharp the string can hang up on it, create a burr and break. It needs to be just slightly radiused, and this procedure can be done with very fine sand paper and an old string, or a small round file. Some makers ignore this because Nylon strings are very hard and can withstand a poor set up. Sometimes bridge saddle edges on the tying side are sharp as well and should be radiused slightly with fine sandpaper.

It is good to help the strings over the nut by lifting them slightly right at the nut as you tune up. Plain Nylgut trebles stretch like crazy so you should also cinch the strings up tight on the barrels before winding. Be sure not to overlap wound strings on the tuning barrels. The preferred method is to put a set on an instrument in the evening, bring them just up to pitch, let them sit overnight, and finish tuning in the morning. This allows the molecules some time to adjust to being stretched. Give them a week or so to stretch in fully (less for ukulele strings) before passing any judgment on tone as it takes a while for them to develop their best sound.
