I love em!
I use the standard Tenor set only I replace the G with a Red Aquila Low "G". Excellent combination for clean, clear and warm. Simply beautiful tones and perfect intonation! Best uke strings I've found period!

No other are close
An outstanding string. I have them on my concert ukulele with the low wound G, and on my tenor banjolele with reentrant tuning. Warm and mellow on the uke, crisp, snappy bright and ringing on the banjolele. These strings do it all. They take a few days to stretch,and it'll seem like they'll never settle in but they do, and then they last and last. My ukes will have no other strings.

Aquila Nylgut Strings
These strings are wonderful. They have a bright sound with a slight punch when picked or strummed. Definitely harder than the bionylon strings. If you are looking for something with a bright punch then these are it.

No uke strings are warmer or even touch the sound of Aquila. There is no reason to look elsewhere.

No other strings compares to these strings once they are broken in. I have used Aquila strings before and am always satisfied.

Great strings -- take a while to break in but wish also had them at my local music store because the shipping was expensive.

Aquila Tenor Strings
The Tenor Ukulele sounds 100% better with these strings . Just wish we could buy them in England as shipping cost made them very expensive, but glad we bought them.

Aquila Tenor Regulars (Uke)
Bright but mellow...rich, luscious lows and crystal highs. Long-lived...I change them half as often as Martins. Very stable string and feels nice!

Good attack, full bright tone, Good tension. There is a reason these are the most popular Uke strings!
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.

Nylgut has a specific density and acoustical qualities nearly identical to that of gut, and is the first truly successful synthetic version of the natural product.

Other strong points of Nylgut are its elevated resistance to wear under tension-greater than that of gut-but even more important is its extraordinary immunity to changes of climate, considerably better than that of Nylon and thereby ensuring a superior stability of tuning under normal conditions.
