More Talk about Ukulele Strings

So, after my last post about my new Aquila Ukulele Strings, I got a fair amount of feedback from my Twitter buddies.  @ApollosTowel (from Finland, no less) had the following to say (I'm paraphrasing):

The rule I use is Koa Ukuleles sound best with Aquila or D'addario Strings.   Mahogany Ukes sound better with Worth. The exception to this is Koaloha. Spruce goes either way.
Laminates generally like Aquila Strings (except for Kiwaya) as well. I think Worths are so much better than Aquilas on Flukes and Fleas.
Kiwaya laminates tend to like the fluorocarbon types, including Worth. The same rule applies for their solid ukes. 🙂

@hermanvdc had this to say on the subject of Ukulele Strings:

Indeed, Aquila helps give more brilliance to cheap ukuleles but on good the better ones Worth and especially Orcas sounds better!

So, I figured that I should post this so that everyone can make up their own mind and then give you some links to buy Orcas and Worth Ukulele Strings.

One thought on “More Talk about Ukulele Strings”

  1. I have searched for good strings for my beloved fleas and flukes. I have two concerts, a pineapple and a tenor.
    Aquilas I thought were great, but they take a toll on the instrument (popped the bridge on my pineapple).
    After searching many makes and materials, I just buy the Worth clears.
    They appear to be expensive, but you get two sets in one package.
    Clears are definitely the way to go if you need to cut through a bunch of singers and be heard.
