These are great strings. They sound really good, no surprise there. I?ve used lots of Aquila strings in the past for my sopranos and tenors and they?ve always got a bright, pleasing sound that fits a ukulele better than the sound from classical guitar strings. I didn?t even know that Aquila made strings for baritone ukulele, otherwise I would have been using these a long time ago. I can?t say if this red series sounds better than the regular Aquila baritone uke strings but they definitely give my uke a different look. The red really stands out against the colour of my spruce. I?ll definitely be stoking up on these. They are my new go to strings.
